THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mexico City Gourmet Restaurant Review

: The RodrĂ­guez family launched this operation in 1982. Three separate sections, with the bar in the middle, are entered by passing beneath brick archways. The surroundings are a bit worn, but the ambience is friendly and welcoming. The salsa is rather bland in texture, but picks up heat and interest in the seasoning. No-nonsense platters of meats with the requisite onions, yellow rice and refried beans are what you get for fair prices. The carnitas are tender and sweet, and the guacamole is freshly made and properly chunky in texture. House-made flan is the dessert of choice; it comes with KahlĂșa and whipped cream, but the kitchen will cheerfully remove that nonsense from your portion upon request. Margaritas aplenty and Mexican beers are the quaffs of choice, although there is a short, unexciting but wicked cheap wine list.
