Mexico Restaurante Bar Chon

Fonda Don Chon Review

This unpretentious family-style restaurant, deep in a downtown working-class neighborhood, is famed for its pre-Hispanic Mexican dishes. A knowledge of zoology, Spanish, and Nahuatl helps in making sense of a menu that includes ingredients from throughout the republic. Escamoles de hormiga (red-ant roe) is known as the "caviar of Mexico" for its texture and costliness, but it is an acquired taste. Other exotic dishes are armadillo in mango sauce and fillet of wild boar.
