Fonda el Refugio
Fonda el Refugio serves regional Mexican cuisine for lunch and dinner. Located on a tree-lined street, the bright blue, two-story building has a Spanish-style, white stucco entrance and red tile overhang. The interior is Old World, with brick walls, dark wood furniture, and copper pots hanging above the wood-burning fireplace. The menu reflects culinary traditions from each state in Mexico, and includes pumpkin seed moles, fruit- and seed-flavored aguas (juices), and arroz con plátanos, which pairs rice with fried bananas. The huachinango a la veracruzana, red snapper with tomatoes and olives, is a specialty here.
Do some shopping after lunch or before dinner across the street at Mercado Insurgentes. This neighborhood market has more than 200 craft vendors selling everything from ponchos to hand-made silver jewelry.
