When work gets intense, healthy habits tend to slide. If you're prone to lunching on whatever takeout food manages to arrive at your desk when you get busy, here's a life-enhancing tip for you: Take the break you and your brain deserve and head to Degu. This charming restaurant is a must for folks who work in La Condesa: Its oft-changing menu of healthy, delicious meals pleases both the eyes and the taste buds, and its location on Plaza Popocatépetl means you get a calming view of a lush park. The soup menu changes daily, so there's always something new for a dose of midday comfort. Don't be surprised if you find yourself visiting this spot even after the work rush subsides.
