Tenancingo is a place southwest of Mexico City famous for producing rebozos which are an important part of Mexican traditional clothing that I am sure you have seen before.

El Sushi Iwashi is a very small Japanese restaurant located in the heart of Polanco, in Mexico City. The restaurant is hard to find out and also hard to get in, as they have only 16 seats along the beautiful bar and they don’t take reservations. If you decide to go just prepare to wait to be seated but, in my opinion, it is worth it. The menu is relatively small although includes different appetizers, nigiri's, sashimi’s, temaki's, and a seafood bowl. The food was delicious,
This restaurant is located in the heart of the Polanco Area and offers one of the best Japanese cuisines.

The waiter proposed to order several plates for the table, so we could all share. And we did this, we liked the food so much that we just kept ordering different plates. Everything was delicious, extraordinarily presented

In front of the entrance to the Palacio Nacional, there is a small street with the 17th-century church of Santa Teresa leaning over. By order of the Reform of 1855, aimed at separating the state from the Church, the building was taken away from the Church and from then on had various official functions. Since 1990, it is a home for the ExTeresa art gallery in which temporary exhibitions are organized. Admission is free. We pop in the exhibition titled Sonido (Sound). Very int
The museum is organized in a colonial house from 1681, where furniture and trinkets from that era are presented. The house belongs to the affluent Fabela family. On the main patio, there is an impressive and completely unique spring. It is 8 meters tall and is made of Chinese porcelain.

The museum is located on Sant Jacinto Square, next to Saks, a cafe with a very European style.
