This is supposed to be the oldest restaurant in Mexico City (opened in 1860). All the environment and decoration are typically Mexican -as well as the cuisine-, the service is good and the prices are slightly higher than the average, but the quality of the food is good.
Favorite Dish: They always say you should definitely try the Chiles en nogada which is a very typical Mexican dish and which they cook all year long (they're usually available only during a very short season, around September) and are very good. Those are chiles stuffed with a minced-meat-&-seeds/fruit mix and covered with a creamy sauce made with nuts. I personally don't like them but they say they are good there.
This is the place where me and my mum got food poisoning!
I have a very strong stomach and ate street food daily without problems but the ceviche at this restaurant made me very very ill!
avoid! (it tasted nice though)
Classic Mexican restaurant founded on August 4, 1860. Its walls are decorated with photographs, lithographs and paintings, the most important being a mural by Antonio Albanes, representing the Plaza Santo Domingo in the 19th century. There is also a stained glass window on the ground floor, designed by the painter Jose Gomez Rosas “El Hotentote”, featuring the cover of the restaurant’s menu. The visitors’ book contains the signatures of many well-known personalities, including politicians, artists, intellectuals, businessmen and sportsmen.
Favorite Dish: I had quesadillas which were just GORGEOUS!!!
