Sometimes stylized Na De Fo, Nadefo is one of Mexico City’s best-known Korean cuisine hotspots, and you simply must visit if you’re hunting for some of the most delicious Korean dishes in town. One of their most popular options is the bim bim bap, a white rice and vegetable concoction accompanied by an egg that continues to cook in the dish as you eat. Alternatively, you can try their specialty, galbi. Nadefo is owned and run entirely by Koreans, so the authenticity of the food is practically guaranteed.

This restaurant has become famous for its Japanese-style comida corrida (quick, warm lunch), which costs about US $7 and includes miso soup, a cucumber salad, sushi, a main meat plate, and a plate of fruit for dessert. They have all your favorites but some suggest the shabu-shabu (soup that is prepared tableside) or the shogayaki (fried pork with ginger). The ambience is mellow and the portions filling.
