Without any doubts, fall is my favorite season of the year. September smells different from August or October. It is all about leafs of the trees, cool rains, smell of spices and the feeling of happiness, of something magic that is about to happen. This is September to me.
What there is good to eat this September in Mexico City? As usual, there are some restaurants by my choice for this month!
Venezuelan food in Mexico? Hell yes! If it is as delicious as food in Areperia, why should we tell no?
Their menu has so many options! Choose from patacon (which is fried plantain topped with different goods) – with pork, chicken o veggies or arepa (filled corn bread) – with pork and cheese, chicken and avocado, shrimps and garlic.
I am a fan of meet, so I have had patacon with pork&cheese and my vegetarian friend have had arepa with beans, avocado and plantain. I would absolutely come back for their avocado&chicken and shrimp&garlic arepas, they looked soooo good! Don’t forget to ask for their special chia lemonade, which was just awesome!

CORAZON DE MAGUEY
I hope you are as adventurous as I am and the picture above won’t scare you!
I am an absolute fan of Corazon de Maguey – located in the heart of Coyoacan, this amazing place has not only amazing, exquisite food, but also a real Mexican atmosphere.
Corazon de Maguey is a TOP place if you want to taste some eatable Mexican insects, that are impossible to find in some other restaurants and are considered delicacy.
My all time favorites are tacos de lengua (tongue tacos), hibiscus deep fried tacos, their guacamole with grasshoppers. And escamoles (and if you don’t know those are giant ants eggs) – buttered and soft, they will blow your mind!
And for sure don’t forget to try some of their mezcal – the choice is immerse!

Breakfast definitely is the most important part of the day! I always say – if you have had a good breakfast, your day have started just right!
When it comes to Matisse restaurants, let me start with the bread, because it is as good as same heaven. It actually tastes as you would put a piece of a heaven in your mouth! Don’t miss a crepe with huitlacoche (corn fungus, which is another delicacy), poblano sauce and melted cheese and French poached eggs. Yuuuum!

Want to eat something quick and, at the same time, good for you? Frutos Prohibidos is your choice. Their “Pecados” – rolls – with pastrami or salmon are devilishly good and fulfilling. Eggs cazuela is a perfect September comfort food. And finally their fresh juices and, oh-my-god, almond croissant won my heart forever!
Just two words. Matcha panque. I am done here!
Seriously. Cool atmosphere, great coffee, amazing deserts.
