Fodor's Expert Review La Casa de Mamá

$ Xalapa Mexican

The antique furnishings and lazily turning ceiling fans almost succeed in giving this popular restaurant the vibe of an old-fashioned hacienda, but the insistent street noise reminds you that you're in a busy capital city. Never mind: you'll be focusing on the generous portions of charcoal-broiled steaks and the succulent shrimp and fish dishes, served with frijoles charros (black beans cooked in a spicy sauce). The place is known for its desserts, which include flan with caramel and bananas flambéed in brandy.
