Whatever you think you know about Mexican food is probably wrong, the version that is put out to the World is usually the Tex-Mex variety. The good news is that true Mexican food is far better than anything you are likely to have tasted and the style of cuisine is even better. In the city you will find street vendors littered on every street and corner of the city selling some of the finest local food. Couple that with the amazing restaurants here selling both local and international cuisine, and you have one of the hottest places in the World to eat.
