This place has been open for many years and it is because they serve authentic Mexican food with great service. During August and September you must try the "Chile en Nogada". One if not the best in Mexico City.

Let me start off by saying: best margueritas in the area (maybe even the city). La Fonda (as we've nicknamed it) has become a regular for us over these 6 weeks we've spent in Mexico city. Simple traditional food for all tastes, and all of...More

Traditional Mexican Cuisine since 1954. Everything is made artisanally. We cook all our dishes in clay pots. We prepare our moles from scratch. Cook our own tortilla dough using the ancient nixtamalization process and then grinding the corn in our own volcanic rock mill. We grind & stuff our own sausage, hanging it & letting it cure for a whole week before it can be used. All our desserts are made also in either copper or clay pots. Be sure to ask for a tour of the kitchen so you can witness this first hand and also take a lesson on how to make tortillas and our world famous margaritas.
