El Hidalguense is only open three days a week (Friday-Sunday), but come to this massive Roma Sur restaurant any time during those hours and expect to walk into the biggest party in the neighborhood. Large families eating giant plates of barbacoa (it’s their specialty), groups of friends sipping mezcal shots and housing tacos, and neighbors getting together for their weekly gossip session. A meal at Hidalguense feels like a meal with the whole city and is, if you’re with a big group, one that shouldn’t be missed.
