  1. The Economist noted in June 2020 that the typical price of a BIG MAC in the United States is $5.71 which is equivalent to 121 Mexican pesos in October 2020. I know this video is dated in 2015, but the price of the "comida corrida" is not that much different today. Incidentally, if it isn't obvious, "comida corrida" literally means "running food" or as we normally say in English "fast food".

  2. No creo que $15 sea mucho por un huevo frito, si no es hora del desayuno seguro tuvieron que ensuciar otro sartén y calentar el aceite solo para ese huevo

  3. They’re not ripping you off for charging more than 5 pesos. You have the ability to go elsewhere you cheap ass. If they tell you it’s 5 and charge you 10, then it’s a rip-off. GTFOOH

  4. Nice Vid Paul!! Hey! you should check the audio, in some parts you sound far away and more to the right side. Besides that, good work! PD: You want to get fancy: Go to the top of the WTC building, it is a nice view from there. Cheers!!!

  5. Comida corrida can be found everywhere, even in corporate chains like Vips, Toks, Wings (is Wings still around?) and of course Denney's. Sanborn's had it too back in my Mexico City days (pricey, but it was good).

  6. keep the good work man, I like a lot your videos… I'm from Tijuana Mexico, is on the north-west corner of the country. If you come here please let me know and I will give you a tour of this city. I have a friend that comes every year for vacations … she is a chef from Sweden !!! so that i think is a good reference.

  7. I think you have a great thing going with this channel! I love that you really document the daily things that might be trivial but to a Mexican like me reminds me not to take for granted the great things about Mexico which is great cheap food. A lot of bloggers do the trendy boutique and hipster bars in Mexico city but that gets boring. The content you have in you're videos is refreshing and interesting. My most sincerest thanks!

  8. Hey Paul, I absolutely love your enthusiasm towards mexican every day life style and details. Keep it up! I love my Mexico and you do a great job at documenting it.

  9. XD I love your videos so much, it gives me another perspective of my own city (cdmx) some things I find so natural I don't even think about and when you talk about it, it makes me think how odd it can be
