Mexico City’s hidden gems.
Its inhabitants describe Mexico City as a monster you can’t help but fall in love with. With a population of more than 21 million people, the streets are organised chaos. Follow the locals across the cobbled streets, past the Art Deco buildings and vibrant murals to find their secret haunts. At Azul Histórico, a downtown restaurant favoured by residents, order hibiscus-filled empanadas with a side of grasshopper-topped guacamole. As the locals say, there is never enough time in “Mehico” City, just like there is never enough tequila; cdmxtravel.com. Alley Pascoe
