La Tecla has been around for a while now, and it shows. This is both good and bad. The Roma location (the only one I have been to) is a little worn aroudn the edges, with some awkward dining spaces and really low cielings. But the food is good, this is where it is notable that they have been improving their menus over time. I went the other day with the wife and had a steak stuffed with apples and figs ina sweet fruity sauce (can't remmeber what it was), with a bit of chile pasilla thrown in to add some kick. It was quite good, and an interesting use of ingredients. My wife had a chicken breast with some kind of sauce I also can't remember, stuffed with plantains and Oaxaca cheese, which was also good and very Mexican but not a typical menu item. This is what I like about the place, it is all very Mexican food, but a little different, but not some gastro-science experimient that strays so far from the source material that you forget what kind of food it is. I also had some spring rolls which were quite tasty and caldo tlalpeño, a chicken and vegetable type soup, that was nothing special. Service was decent, and the wine menu was very reasonably priced (decent bottles for $225 pesos and up), a pleasant surprise. The place could use an update, but all in all a tasty Mexican meal with a bit of innovation can be had here for a reasonable price.
