“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I used to frequent Fonda 99.99 back in 2009 on assignment in Mexico City. But tonight I got to revisit since I now live in the City. The habanero salsa is Increíble! Just a scant spoon in the sopa Lima and you are ready to go!

“Good yucatan food at affordable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We ended up eating at 99.99 because we were near it and craved for cochinita and queso relleno. The place reminded me of an American diner. The service was very fast but not quality. The food was very good, but the menu was just tacos. Prices are very accessible.

“Great place to eat in Mexico City..... real Yucatecan food...cannot miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

This is a "fonda" NOT a restaurant...and for those of you not familiar with the concept, it´s basically the same thing, only with a smaller menu and much cheaper prizes. It´s located in the "colonia del valle" in the south of Mexico City. It opens at 13:00 hrs and on the weekends either get there at 12:45 or at 14:00, between 13:00 and 14:00 you will have to wait for 15-20 min to get a table.
This is not a "fancy" place, but it´s very clean, very nice and a family oriented.
They don´t accept anything but cash....so don´t bother getting the credit card out.....the good thing is that is really very cheap: 3 adults (no alcohol) ate for 320 pesos (about 25 USD at current change rate).
Ask for the "panuchos de cochinita" to begin with and then the "lechón".....it´s really really good.
Another very good thing is that since the menu is so short.......they serve you really fast :-).
So......if you are looking for real good yucatecan food, this is the place you want to go.
Another good thing (I really like this when I travel abroad) is that there are no tourists here...this is out of the way, so strictly Mexicans and residents.......which guarantees that this is most definitively not a "tourist trap".
So......enjoy!

“So my hidden gem is now out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

My hidden gem has been outed! With the medical facility down the street, they have a constant stream of clients, and it's too bad they're only open for comida, but still some of the best Yucatec food in DF.
