I had the Pechuga Rellena (chicken) dish that was really good. I've got to go back again for the same.

Visited last April 12th afternoon. The place is a mix of all things Frida. The staff is extremely friendly and the service superb. We had classic margaritas with "nopales" and chips as complimentary appetizer, fresh and delicious start for the afternoon. The waiter suggested the...More

This is a very interesting place, because of both the location, and the cuisine concept. They have the usuals on mexican food, but also a few not-so-common dishes that are worth trying, like the Escamoles appetizer which is seasoned very tasty and different from other...More
