When we were looking for a quick place to grab a good-bye bite with a friend, he quickly brought us to El Parnita.  A very casual hip antojería (‘place for little cravings’).  Located in the north of the Roma neighborhood, be sure to take a lace in the nice outdoor sitting area which is just perfect for a sunny afternoon of micheladas; which are a super refreshing mix of beer, special chilies and lime served in colorful tin mugs.

On arrival, jicama stalks – a super delicious crispy and refreshing root – are brought to the table to munch on while you explore the menu.  There is a nice mix of delicious,  tacos, tortas (sandwiches), and tlacoyitos – a thick stuffed corn masa pastie in an elongated oval shape, (not very attractive looking but tasty!).  We quite enjoyed the Taco of zucchini blossom and the Oaxaca cheese with onion avocado and salsas.

It all really comes to the salsas, which constantly change in flavor and color.  The menu also has daily soup & taco as well as salads and desserts.  So repeated visits may be warranted!
