El Parnita Mexico City – Mexican "Antojitos"

"El Parnita" in Mexico City offers a nice collection of dishes - some of the best snacks in the country! Great for a bite while walking through Roma...

This restaurant offers a collection of recipes for some of the best snacks in Mexico. Some of the dishes include: ceviches, tostadas, tlacoyos, chalupas, freshly made tortillas and great spicy sauces. One of the reasons I like this place is that the plates are perfect for sharing with a small group - you can try a little bit of everything! They offer some special dishes only available that day, so that way you get to try different things every time you go. I had the chance to try their vegan tacos made with bell peppers and mushrooms and they were great!

The restaurant has a great atmosphere, noisy and crowded, busy even during weekdays, and during the weekend you can wait up to 1 hour for a table. It's a great spot to have a bite while walking through Roma neighborhood.

The prices, though, are a little bit more expensive than street or market tacos but it's totally worth it for the nice environment and service.
