Fodor's Expert Review Los Almendros

$$ Polanco Mexican

If you can't make it to the Yucatán, try the peninsula's unusual food here. The habanero chilies, red onions, recados (seasoning pastes), and other native Yucatecan ingredients are a delightful surprise for those not yet in the know. Traditional dishes like a refreshing lime soup share the menu with hard-to-pronounce Mayan cuisine like pescado Tikin-Xic—whitefish in a mild red marinade of annatto seed and bitter-orange juice. Unless you're alone, try the antojitos de Santa Ana, a huge tasting platter of 10 typical dishes. It's also a place for power breakfasts among businessmen from this posh neighborhood.
