I was staying in Polanco for business, and asked a few locals what a good authentic place to eat would be, and this place was highly recommended, when I first walked in, it seemed like it could be a Mexican restaurant in the U.S., with the standard decor. We ordered margaritas and they were giant. My tamarind margarita was ok but I probably should have tried something less touristy. The appetizers were smaller than expected but fantastic tasting, including esquites and guacamole. I also ordered some sort of mole-covered wrapped-up chopped green vegetable and cheese appetizer (the waiter explained it but I can't remember what it was--something I'd never heard of). The mole was outstanding. I'm not a mole expert but I've always hated e ones I've tried before this one. For dinner I had a Yucatan-style pork stuffed into banana leaves. The pork was great. I thought the little plain tortilla triangles with it were unnecessary. Careful with the little pepper that comes with it and looks like a small tomato--I had just touched it to my lips but was fortunately distracted long enough to notice my lips were on fire! It may be cliche but I liked the roaming mariachi band. The menu was quite impressive and unique looking. I wanted to try so much more. A little expensive here, but it was memorable.
