Pan-Asian dishes from Indian samosas & pad Thai to Chinese dumplings in one of our favorite streets in Mexico City. Under the concept of street food, Sesame offers a lot of options for all likes. The drinks are definitely something to explore here as well. We love the buns, the edamames with garlic and furikake shiso, and the curry.
