Jonathan Gold, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the LA Weekly, snacks on Mexico City-style cuisine at Sabor a Mexico and Antojitos del D.F. Known as el Distrito Federal, or Federal District, Mexico City is known for its huaraches, huitlacoche quesadillas, pambazos and mulitas. Jonathan recommends the quesadillas de flor de calabaza (squash-blossom turnovers) at both restaurants.
