This historic Mexico City institution, founded in 1912, is big, bright, and bustling, from the entrance, with its massive mural depicting chocolate in various contexts, which overlooks the pastry counter, to the back dining rooms with their ornate mirrors, wrought-iron railings, and Moorish-style lights. The menu is an anthology of Mexican specialities with other homey specialities added. Standouts include the mole poblano enchiladas, the chicken tacos with guacamole, the chuchulocos (taquitos) in hot sauce, the barbecued pork steak, the fried calf's brains, the beef fillet with chilaquiles, and the assorted house-made Mexican pastries.
