    The Cochinita Pibil is subtle and sublime. I prefer visiting Pico's on weekdays when I don't have to wait for a table and can usually find a table outside under the palapa.

    Powerful Margaritas, where even in the cheap ones they put high quality tequila. Great chips and two types of salsas (love their green salsa!). My favorite dish: Filete de Pescado Mojo de Ajo.

    The real standouts are the authentic Mexican dishes like mole (3 kinds!) and the sublime chiles en nogada. When available, osso buco and soft shell crabs are outstanding, but not so cheap.

    Dinner with the neighbors. Expensive but good. This is not the place for Tex-Mex. This is Oxaca or other central Mexican food.

    For breakfast ask for tamales with an over easy egg...then pop the yolk and let the tamale do the rest.

    The best dishes are the non-typical TexMex selections. Skip the fajitas and get their soft shell crab or their take on a Mexican paella.

    They're not on the menu, but the Crawfish enchiladas are awesome. Comes with spinach and plain white rice. The dish is spicy, but not crazy spicy. Enjoy.
