Expect dishes from each major region of Mexico when you come here. Along with a varied regular menu, there are tempting daily specials; you might find a mole made with pumpkin seeds or huachinango a la veracruzana (red snapper bathed in a tomato sauce with capers and olives). Try the refreshing aguas (fresh-fruit and seed juices) with your meal and the café de olla (clove-flavored coffee cooked in a clay pot and sweetened with brown sugar) afterward.

In Zona Rosa, tired from a day at the Anthropological Museum. We did not want to go for a long walk or taxi ride. Fodor's list included FONDA EL REFUGIO, just 3 minutes away. Wonderful staff, clean restaurant and great mexican food. We have 7 more days and we will return.

The food reminds me of what you would find if a fonda at a local market. Great chicharon con salsa verde. The agua de limon is wonderful. I go there everytime I am in el D.F.
