Paquime Street Food Of Mexico is a restaurant in Mexico City’s up-and-coming Roma Norte neighborhood.
Paquime is the name of one of the most important pre-Hispanic settlements in northern Mexico, but the food here doesn’t have anything to do with ancient Mexican cuisine.
The restaurant’s name has much to do with its location – in the streets of a gentrifying neighborhood that has doubled as a trendy hipster hangout.
What is Paquime Street Food Of Mexico?
Paquime takes its inspiration from local street food, especially hamburguesa – a sandwich consisting of fried meat (usually beef or pork), lettuce, and tomato served on a roll. Paquime offers many variations on the theme, including vegetarian burgers.
One of our favorites is the Pambazos burger ($31), which combines ground beef and chorizo with lettuce, tomato, queso fresco cheese, chipotle sauce, and a fried egg.
The bacon and egg sandwich ($29) is also great. We also ordered the Paquime burger – a hamburger with bacon, cheese, tomato, and lettuce on a brioche bun ($27). The meat was good, but the bun was too dry.

The prices here are not the typical prices. We paid much more at the restaurant. So if one is looking to eat at an exceptionally high cost, this is probably not a good choice. But it’s a good option if one is not looking for the extremely high cost.
