On my recent visit to Mexico City, I ate precisely one Chinese meal, notable less for the food itself than for the Dongbei heritage of the cooks. Although I never set foot inside Kong Ming — typical for CDMX, the menu was Cantonese — I did add its likeness to the Chinese Restaurant Worldwide Documentation Project. In all, I photographed 17 Mexico City restaurants for the photo pool, 11 of which identify their cuisine with an immediacy that rivals pandas and bamboo. Even when the restaurant name is writ small, as at Kong Ming, those red lanterns send their signal.
