Last time we were in Mexico, my friend JorgeFitz called and said: I want Regis and you to come to DF and spend a weekend at our casa in La Roma neighborhood (their casa dates back from 1913!), he also added they (he & his hubby Alberto) were “slowly cooking” something very special and they wanted us to try and test that super secret project.
One year is not enough to thoroughly know a city, but is better than a 3-day trip, especially when the destination is exotic Marrakech, where the simplest of things as taking a taxi, or crossing a street can become a nightmare. So, with exactly a year past since we moved from the Red City, I thought it would be nice to share with you those tips on the people, places, and food that stole our hearts.
Today we´ll take off with those hotels, riads, and restaurants that made the cut.
October started on a happy note, my niece A.M. was born on the first week of the month, although I’m already the proud auntie of two other adorable niece and nephew, the welcoming of a newborn baby girl in the family is with no doubt the happiest news I received lately. Also, I´m so proud of my sister F. who decided to give birth at her home with no other assistance than her doula, two extra loving and supportive friends, and obvs, her hubby. #sistapower
While browsing through the zillion photos I snapped during the #VibeComida trip in Israel early this year, I bumped into those of our last day in Tel Aviv. We had a wonderful light brunch at Manta Ray, an iconic restaurant founded by Avi and Ofra Ganor, the food power couple that are an institution in TLV’s gourmet scene. After spending seven days experiencing (aka mostly eating our way through) Israel’s classic street dishes and modern upscale creations, that last day my taste buds and belly were overstimulated and just plain tired.
I won’t even start trying to apologize about the fact that I´m posting a 2013 DF highlight until now. Let’s just assume I like to rest my thoughts, and be really, really sure about said opinions. I am that engaged with my blogging :)
In more serious tone, this small, and bit hidden restaurant in the borders of La Roma and La Condesa hip neighborhoods’ of Mexico city is a joy. I read many positive reviews from my fellow food bloggers and journalists friends back home, that when my friend Bere suggested Duo Salado y Dulce for tea, I knew I had to discover this place more deeply.
