    Go for lunch and get the mole negro—chicken leg topped with a rich, thick dark mole sauce that's smokey, sweet, and slightly spicy. Make tacos out of it with the accompanying tortillas.

    Best Mexican food you can pay. Excellent service. Crowds on weekends. Reserve or send one of the party to Cue. Fish&cactus soup. Escamoles & breakfast NATA y concha.

    Recommend: escamoles(must), shrimp tacos, and chicken thigh with mole(although personally I think they put too much sauce on top)

    Extremely disappointed... Maybe I had high expectations but seriously... there's sooo many better options for breakfast in this city. Go to El Mayor instead if you want to stay in Centro histórico

    They have the best appetizer ever, but in general their problem is that they are too popular. Chicken breast in mole was old, I mean mole is a great thing if you want to hide chicken's imperfections..

    Spicy salsa! Since you arrive you are greeted with a hot cup of cocoa and sweet bread. We ordered "gorditas" "huevos ahogados" and "huevo con cecina".

    If you go to one place in Mexico City, it should be El Cardenal. The breakfasts are legendary, especially the the hot chocolate and the"panes dulces" that put every other Mexican sweet bread to shame.

    Something different? Try "escamoles" a delicious typical dish. With Tortilla and green salsa.

    Pastry in the beginning was very nice. Chocolate drink a little to watery for my liking. Great service.

    Consistently the Mexican restaurant in DF. You will find every great Mexican dish for breakfast or lunch. This is also a safe place to indulge in Mexican insect specialties. –Adam Calderon

    La comida deliciosa, lo mejor el postre: flan de calabaza de Castilla... el servicio extrañamente malo y desatento.
