Aika Buns – Fast and delicious

Mexico City is the land of tacos. They are the easiest way to eat something cheap and delicious, fast.

Now buns work the same way. Aika Buns is a small place in Juárez neighborhood. I heard about them a long time ago but I tried them last week. It was a surprise. They are absolutely delicious. I asked for the open-pork-belly, it’s like a taco but with rice bread instead of tortilla. I put some salsa macha inside — this sauce is oil-based with a mixture of dried chili — and it was amazing: warm on the outside and deliciously hot on the inside. The texture of the bread brought a whole new experience, close to tacos and far away at the same time.

There are also sweet buns: chocolate-cranberry, and caramel with nuts. I tried the second one and I’m salivating now.

Aika Buns is a good place to make a short stop before going to a bar at the same neighborhood.
