“Viva Villa Maria”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Superb Tamarind Margaritas and a great choice of traditional Mexican dishes from all over the country. Has its own Mariachi band. A good mix of local and tourist diners in the upmarket Polanco district.

“The margarita was enormous”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

With a title like that, you might expect a tacky tourist joint. However, this charming restaurant has great atmosphere, professional service, and offered excellent authentic Mexican food. Green tortillas serves with my verde sauce were unusual but tasty.

The aforementioned margarita is frozen (heresy, I know) and flavored with tamarind juice. I hadn't been a fan of the fruit before, but this semisweet cocktail won me over.
