“Great place to eat in Mexico City..... real Yucatecan food...cannot miss it!”
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".
