Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
This is a little book with a big purpose: to put Mexico City on the map as one of the great food capitals of the world. Written by a resident gastronome who knows the city inside and out, this guide takes the reader to out-of-the-way market stalls, taco joints, as well as fashionable high-end dining spots. Included are chapters on bars and cantinas, cafés, and food shopping, and short essays on various aspects of Mexican cuisine and its history. Clear maps of the city, as well as an extensive glossary of ingredients, dishes and cooking terms are provided, making this an easy to use guide to the best food in a great city.
"Finally! The book I have been hunting for: a foodie's guide to the culinary wonders of one of the largest, most culturally-diverse cities in the world. This compact, easy-to-follow book has something to tempt every palate, from under-the-highway taco stands to cutting edge haute cuisine.
The Washington Post
"An essential book for those who discover history and culture, tradition and trends, through their taste buds."
author of Travel Advisory
"If you can't have the knowledgeable Mr. Gilman as your personal guide, this book is the next best thing."

It does need a good going over by a more demanding editor to clean up a few flaws, such as missing items on the maps. There are key listings, in some cases, but no corresponding locator number on the map. The maps are very small scale and of low quality.
But, overall, it's a good buy for the Mexico City food aficionado.
