Reforma For A Day

A July 2004 trip to Mexico City by lobosolo

Quote: Distrito Federal is the official name of Mexico City, the country’s capital. Here, you can find almost anything due to the centralization.

Campo Marte

Restaurant

Quote:
After spending some time with the children at the National Auditorium next door (see Auditorio Nacional) we adults needed to have some food so we went to the military casino called the Campo Marte restaurant. You simply won’t believe how good food militia will serve! The fish "a la Campo Marte" will drive you to the refinely good combination of fish and fruit flavors (strawberry, raspberry, grapes and such) and you will be elated if you like mising sweet with fish. For me it was like a fish dessert so I actually had two desserts in a sitting, for later I had a very good cheesecake. The shrimp in bleu cheese sauce my wife had were simple out of this world (actually they were of the military world, the ...Read More

It had been several years since I last saw this friend. She recommended this restaurant. She asked for a private room, and although it was set for five, there were only us. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. Try the shrimp with cashews!

Auditorio del Palacio Nacional

Attraction | "Auditorio Nacional"

Quote:
It is a modern building, housing different shows and spectacles. Those are ranging from music concerts, performances, theater, and political assemblies. In this case, there were ice rink activities such as ‘Holiday on Ice’, performing a theatrical ice rink play of ‘Monsters Inc.’ of Pixar and Disney. The show itself could be improved a lot but since it is for the kids, the skaters do what they can and there is no need for them to show off that much. Besides, what else can you do with such big and uncomfortable costumes that mar your capabilities to perform.

Six Flags México

Attraction | "Six Flags Mexico"

Quote:
It is a park built in the '70s and has been re-modeled several times since. Then, Six Flags bought it. The characters are better taken care of now and everybody knows them. There is a welcome show with Bugs, Tweety, Sylvester, Daffy and friends. One show is at 10am and the other one a 11am. There are others afterwards as well. I wouldn’t recommend the Batman show we visited. I would, however, recommend the ride of free fall in the Polynesian Town. The Dolphins show is good, but always crowded; so be there about a half an hour before it starts (ours was at noon). Whatever you do, don’t eat in Chinatown! The food was cold, greasy and sticky!
