Upon arriving in Mexico City, I didn’t know what to expect.
I’ve visited various areas of Mexico over the years, and most of our visits have been to coastal areas and beach towns to unwind and relax. My love of traveling keeps me moving every few months, so when my uncle mentioned in January that he was heading down south in March, I jumped at the opportunity to go with him.
So we did. We started our trip in Mexico City, and, well, I’m kind of in love with Mexico City. This vast, cosmopolitan, beast of a place was a blast to visit. By day three the altitude got the best of me, and I had to take it easy, but I loved being there. We had a wonderful time. I didn’t want to leave. I feel like I barely scratched the surface.
A true highlight visit was to Panadería Rosetta. The sous chef at my restaurant told me I had to go here. So one morning, on the way to catch a tour bus, we took an Uber (which is incredibly safe and affordable in Mexico, my uncle said it has changed the way people move around the city), to Roma Norte, tucked into the shoebox of a store front, and had some pastries and coffee.
High altitude baking is no joke, and Panadería Rosetta is arguably the best bakery in the city. The croissants, pastries, and breads are exquisite. Some of the very best I’ve had anywhere, including Paris.
The guava and ricotta danish is one of the most delicious breakfast items I’ve eaten in a very long time. If you find yourself in Mexico City you owe it to yourself to stop by. They have multiple locations, so find the one that will fit everyone in your group.
