Fodor's Review

Skip the tourist traps and hit Mi Pueblo for dressed-up, down-home Mexican food. The 33 dishes on the menu are taken from the culinary traditions of 33 Mexican cities, including Monterrey's corcholatas callejeras, sweet and soft, bite-sized blue corn tortillas with beans, avocado, sour cream, and guajillo pepper. Other top picks are the creamy, crispy Mexico City–style quesadillas with corn and rajas (pepper strips) and a killer mole poblano from

Puebla, where the owner trained as a chef. Go up the stairs and sit in back to watch the cooks make fresh corn tortillas in a traditional Talavera-tiled open kitchen. Daily Happy Hour starts at 5, and a live mariachi can be heard nightly from 7:30–9. This is a great spot to grab a margarita or mojito and watch Playa in action.
