Consider these places that range from the classic quesadilla, to one of the favorites in the summer, ending with the new stuff that Mexican are promoting.

Traditional Quesadillas just like any Mexican food market, they are among the most famous in the city, you won’t regret it. They also have tostadas, sopecitos and flautas. This place is in the center of Polanco so it will be very convenient, I recommend it in the morning or as a Lunch.

Culiacan style Fish and Selfish food, for your friend this is what Mexican fish tacos and tostadas should taste. If you like hot-spicy food ask for aguachile (raw shrimps cooked in lime and chile) and toritos mixtos (grilled marlin and shrimp covered in chile güero in a spicy sauce). Ceviches and Tostadas are really good.

Mexican New fusion cuisine, trying to assemble an old school Cantina with a twist. The palce is funny and really good. In the second floor they have a bar, so is a good idea to start with dinner and stay for a drink. Quesadillas with hibiscus and Tacos de arrachera are a must in this place, but all the food is amazing. For drinks try Cucumber Martini. This place is in the heart of Coyoacan in the south of the city.

Dinner in shanghai for Second Aniversary

Yes $150 usd, I expect to spend it on food and might spend some extra on a good atmosphere and a good show.
I don't usually go for Mexican food outside Mexico. Thanks for the advise

Dinner in shanghai for Second Aniversary

I will be visiting China in the summer and my wife and I will be in shanghai and want to have dinner Chowhound style restaurant, fancy will be a extra. price range max 150 for both.
By that time we will have been traveling China for one week. So It can be Non Chinese Cuisine might be a good idea. we are Mexican and both love food, We live in Boston and love daily catch, Neptune oysters and when traveling to NY never miss Momofuku. Any Italian, Mediterranean, Japanese, Peruvian, etc.

Need an Interesting/Fun Wine Tour

try one of the sparkling wines tours are under 1 hour and the process is very interesting
I have tried Domaine Carneros, very cool tour and Gloria Ferrer

The sparkling wine process has the first part of the white wine plus the second fermentation process and the bottle arrangements and movements. If you can go on a week day you can even see how they freeze the bottle and cork it

Best Sushi in San Antonio?

I think the cream cheese sushi comes from Mexico.
Here in Mexico almost all sushi bars have a lot of cream cheese more than half of the menu
except the traditional ones that are great.
