My wife and I love Good Food in Mexico City! Not only is it entertaining and educational just to read, but we use the recommendations to check out great places to eat and shop for food in Mexico City that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Kudos to Nick Gilman for doing the grueling groundwork that makes it easy for Chilango food lovers.

This is the one and only go-to blog for people interested in the cuisine of Mexico. There are lots of other Mexican foodie blogs, but this is the one I always find most well-written, most informative, and most authoritative.

We have been living in Mexico for two years and we cherish the Good Food in Mexico Blog. It is an never ending guide to fantastic food discoveries, it is a pleasure to read, the author writes very well, every new entry stimulates your curiosity and certainly wets your appetite. It offers a delicious variety of foods, wether a food stall at a street corner, a fine expensive restaurant or a typical fonda. We love it. We have never been disappointed and I can tell you our visiting friends from the U.S. and from Europe love it too. We send them the link to the blog before their arrival and thus create high expectations for Mexican culinary experiences. No disappointment so far! BRAVO!

Good Food in Mexico City is always interesting, informative, insightful, colorful and captures the essence of GREAT Mexican cuisine, ingredients and history.

Some of the best, honest and inviting reviews out there. It gives you the perfect tools to make the best informative decision when considering where to eat great in an enormous city!. But what gives the blog 5 stars is its fun, fluent personality, and the fact that it guides you through Mexican Cuisine, from taquerías and fondas to tasting menus and highend hotspots in a language that everyone gets. Bravo!

Nick is well-informed and constantly looking for new and unusual places to eat in this city that is impossible to conquer in one lifetime. Here´s someone who spends his time searching for the best spots to eat, while writing in a lively fashion about it. Not only that, he gives you the gamut of possibilities: from the hottest new restaurant in town to the best tacos or pulque in some far off neighborhood. An insider´s view of Mexico City.

There is no question that Nick Gilman's blog (and book btw) is the very best source for the very best food that Mexico City has to offer. He gives information, description and opinion and is not shy about giving constructive criticism. He also gives suggestions about the place, neighborhood, etc. - this is hugely useful. I cannot think of any reason that his blog "Good Food in Mexico City" should not win your Expats in Mexico Blog Award!
