Destination weddings are a great excuse to get to know a new exciting city. This past month we traveled to Mexico City for a wedding, but spent most of our time exploring one of the most amazing cities in the world! I am not sure what we expected Mexico City to be, but it surpassed every single one of our expectations. The city is young, creative and vibrant with great design, fashion, arts and food. We spent every spare minute outside exploring the neighborhoods and learning all that we could about Mexico City. Per usual, here are my healthy favorites!
Where to eat:
- Mora Mora – Great smoothies, acai bowls and coffee. Not great for a sit down meal, but the perfect grab-and-go for strolling through Polanco.
- Mythos Estiatorio – I always forget how much I love greek food until I sit down at a greek restaurant. My favorite dish was the grilled veggie plate, simple grilled veggies dressed with EVOO. Clean eating and so so delicious.
- Theodor – The cutest tea cafe I have ever visited! Walk into the front door and you will be greeted by an extremely knowledgable staff who will either walk you through buying bulk tea or take your individual order. Walk past the entry into a maze of cute rooms, each with their own personality. Perfect nooks and crannies for curling up with a cup of tea and enjoying good company.
- Campobaja – Located in Roma Norte, my favorite neighborhood in Mexico City. This restaurant is a hidden gem. Initially, we walked in thinking it was a plant store, but were pleasantly surprised to find an entrance to a beautiful rooftop restaurant. They serve small plates that make it easy to try quite a few menu items. The service is great, and if the weather is nice, I can’t think of a place I would rather spend a long lunch.
What to do:
- Yoga at Mora Mora – So great it made the list twice! From the outside Mora Mora looks like a smoothie bar, but walk to the back and find a bright and beautiful yoga studio. Go for the smoothie, stay for the yoga.
- Walk the steps at Teotihuacan – Ever heard of the Pyramid of the Sun? Take an hour drive outside of the city and you will be standing on the steps of the pyramid, surrounded on all sides by history. Teotihuacan was the largest city in both North and South America during the pre-Colombian era.
- Run through Bosque de Chapultepec – This is Mexico City’s equivalent to Central Park. Just like Central Park, this is the perfect place to wind your way through the greenery and get lost in a run.
