Sobre

Rent a Local Friend is a global platform that connects people who love to travel with those who are passionate about where they live and have a good story to tell. More than a simple walk, we seek the sharing of local tips and contents, information that will not be revealed in any travel book or guides and the most importantly thing, the essence of each culture and the local spirit. All of this is done in a spontaneous, genuine, collaborative and interest-based way, allowing people to connect with those who have similarities or characteristics in common, providing a complete immersion in the next destination to be known.

Refeitório Orgânico - Vegetarian Food

In the Botafogo neighborhood, a good tip for a vegetarian restaurant is the "Refeitório Orgânico". There, you pay a fee for the buffet and freely eat totally vegetarian foods. The space is small, so arrive early or choose to escape the commercial lunchtime (between noon and 2pm).

"Chile relleno" and more at Roldán 37

Roldán 37 is a hidden jewel in one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods in the city: La Merced. Since the Aztec times, this area has been the commercial Mecca of the Country. Today, although a bigger commerce center has been built in the South of the city, La Merced is still a reference for retail trade. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the Country come here everyday to buy or sell their goods. Mexico's culinary diversity is present in every stand one passes by. Fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices with enthralling scents, and savory sauces are just some of the pleasures of visiting this great market. Roldán 37 is located in what used to be the house and storehouse of a pepper merchant of the 19th. Today, his descendants, the Fragoso family, have opened a restaurant that has pepper as the main ingredient of most of its dishes. Here you will be able to taste delicious traditional, and also new, recipes cooked with the many of Mexican "chiles": "poblanos", "chilacas", "serranos", "jalapeños", "cuaresmeños", etc. Yo can even have your tequila served in a "medio chile" (half pepper) which gives it a smoothly hot aftertaste.

Finca Loreto-Family owned traditional Mexican restaurant

Eat & Drink

Finca Loreto-Family owned traditional Mexican restaurant

La Finca Loreto is one of the best "fondas" in Mexico City. A "fonda" is an informal, small and usually family owned restaurant that serves traditional home-made Mexican food in a series of fixed 4 or 5 courses. It includes soups, salad, main course, dessert, bread or tortilla, and fresh fruit water. La Finca is located in a very interesting spot of Downtown Mexico City. Loreto Square is surrounded by two very old churches, one Neoclassical (my favorite) and the other, New Spain Colonial, and by two synagogues, one Sefardi and the other, Ashkenazi. The fountain and the Neoclassical church are masterpieces of Manuel Tolsá, the most important architect of the late colonial period. Although small, La Finca Loreto is quite a cozy place. With its colorful decorated interiors and friendly staff, it is a great place to recover energy after an intense visit to the vibrant nearby Merced market and neighborhood. My favorite dish is "enchiladas de mole", an only-Mexican recipe that is very well prepared at La Finca Loreto. If "mole" is not your thing, you can try "enchiladas rojas". La Finca Loreto is your best option if you are looking for great local taste at a really fair price in a traditional and friendly place.

Em Roma a pizza è geralmente fina e crocante, quase sem borda nenhuma; em proximidade dos pontos mais turísticos, acontece que o recheio deixe a desejar. A legítima pizza napolitana tem uma borda visível mas fofa, e a parte central é fina mas leve, e sem ser crocante. Se você também prefere a pizza napolitana, Michele será sua nova Meca.

Al Andalus

The Lebanese immigrants in Mexico have become a central part our society. For many Mexicans, Lebanese food is not considered exotic or outlandish, it has a special place in our national culinary tradition and is cherished by most of us. In fact, I may say that it's my favorite cuisine, and Al Andalus, my favorite place to eat it. The restaurant is conveniently located in La Merced neighborhood, where Lebanese, Syrian, and Jewish immigrants arrived in the first years of the 20th century and contributed to the strong trade tradition that still makes this area one of the most interesting in the City. In the colonial hall of Al Andalus you will always find Lebanese families before a table covered with dozens of plates with hummus, taboule, keppe, and so on, or men talking business while sipping on their hot turkish coffee or fresh arak. The quality is unbeatable among all the Lebanese restaurants in the City (and perhaps among some I've been in the Middle East). From the spearmint lassi, to the coffee and arab sweets, whatever you order will be a delight to your palate. My favorites are raw keppe, "hojas de parra" (dawali), taboule, falafel, lamb shawarma, and the sweets. If you don't mind people smoking while you are eating, try to get a table at the balcony (the smoking area), it is a very refreshing spot.

BIG ROCK! - Pedra Grande

From the top of this rock, people can see the whole city! A lovely place to visit on the weekends. If you're lucky, you will see some monkeys screaming from the top of the trees - true nature around you. If you choose go to this place, I will provide brazilian traditional food for us eat up there!

TUTTY PIZZAS

This is the best example from a traditional pizza pizza from São Paulo city! There are a lot to be explained about pizzas around here... "Paulistanas" pizzas ("paulistano" means what is genuinily from the city of São Paulo) are very different from pizzas in other places from Brazil and the rest of the world. If you come to SP and don't try a pizza, it's like you didn't visit here at all!

Velo Bike Store

Velo bike rents bikes per hour. My suggestion: Monday to Friday, cycle in direction to Leme. English-speaking employees. A copy of a document is required for rental. Avoid to get closer of Princesa Isabel avenue (I am a Rio's security board partner and focus on making you 100% safe in the city).
