Coyoacán is a vibrant neighbourhood of Mexico City, perhaps best known for being the birth, life and death place of popular artist Frida Kahlo. However, it is also one of the best areas in the city for food – from street food, to desserts and everything in between, these are the top places you should be eating at next time you’re in Coyoacán.
Super Tacos Chupacabra
From taco stand to popular permanent location, this Super Tacos Chupacabras branch continues to offer up the classic street food taco fillings, like longaniza, beef and pork, except now from a more fixed location. Load your tortilla with the salad and salsa freebies that are offered at this excellent spot and enjoy your nighttime treat. Perfect pre- or post-night out, Super Tacos Chupacabra won’t disappoint.

La Barraca Valenciana
Most well-known for its tortas (sandwiches), La Barraca Valenciana is a stalwart of the Coyoacán dining scene and continues to be so – with good reason. As the name suggests, they also serve up some Spanish specialities, such as paella. The perfect option for those who are tiring of tacos, La Barraca Valenciana also has an impressive selection of lesser known chelas (beers).
La Casa de los Helados
If all things cold and creamy are your bag, then La Casa de los Helados is the place for you: it does just what it says on the tin and serves up innumerable ice cream options. Combine your flavour selection with a waffle, stick it in a cone or even just eat it from a simple tub. Whichever one you go for, you won’t be disappointed. The banana split here is particularly good.
La Ruta de la Seda
Technically a café, you may wonder why we’ve placed La Ruta de la Seda with the ‘dessert’ options. Well, to put it simply, the cakes, pies and sweet snacks that are on offer here are divine and make this place well worth visiting for the puddings alone. Try out a slice of green tea cake on your next romantic date for two here.
Churrería General de la República
Churros are ubiquitous across Mexico City, and in the region of Coyoacán the situation is no different. However, if you want to grab a coffee and a seat with your sugary, doughy treat – rather than picking one up from a street vendor – the original Churrería General de la República is the perfect option. With all kinds of churros from stuffed to simple, sweet to savoury, it’s a great place to pick up a bite.
