El Moro is one of my favourite places to eat at in Mexico City. Sure it's mostly churros, but they are amazing. For around $1 USD you can get a freshly made bag to go and eat out in front of Los Belles Artes OR...More

As you would expect from a churreria, it is DELICIOUS! You can have your churros dipped in cinnamon and/or sugar and then you can choose a few different sauces for dipping. The decor is fun and bright.
