Pulquería Hermosa Hortensia Bar in Mexico City

Features
Traditional style

"Unpretentious" is the best adjective to describe this 80-year-old bar just off Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City's Centro Histórico neighborhood. Its specialty? Pulque, a fermented beverage made of the sap of the maguey, an agave. Pulque is an acquired taste, but there's no better place to begin acquiring it than Mexico's capital, where pulquerías are enjoying something of a resurgence. You know this one is good because it's been around for decades and its decor affirms it's got nothing to prove. Ask for a traditional pulque or one that's flavored: some of the sabores here include mango, oatmeal, pine nut, and a savory tomato and parsley.
