Al Andar Restuarante y Mescalería

Al Andar is a very small little restaurant located in the Centro Histórico that has a decent selection of Mexican cervezas artesanales and mezcal. On my visit, they had the Guera, Morena and Bufadora by TJ Beer, Cucapá's Green Card Barley Wine, all the Tempus beers, Jack's Chocolate Stout, all the standard Mexican beers made by the two major companies, Carlsberg and Tsing-tao.

Their menu was pretty eclectic, lots of fish dishes, vegetarian options, tacos, quesadillas, salads, sandwiches, etc. And, what mescalería would be complete without some chapulines on the menu? If you are looking to drink beer/mezcal and munch on some grasshoppers but don't want to head to Oaxaca, then this is the place to go.

Al Andar is located at Regina 56, a pedestrian mall just south of the Zocalo between the streets Isabel La Católica and 5 de febrero. Please note that the linked map is not exactly accurate, google maps places it about 3 blocks east of where Al Andar is actually located, but it will get you into the right vicinity. The closest metro stop is Isabel la Católica, but you can walk to Al Andar from any other location in the area of the Zocalo.
