This traditional three-story house that overlooks Plaza Santa Catarina is a great place to eat comfort-style food after a visit to the Frida Kahlo Museum. Ask for a table on the top floor for the best view, and plan on starting your meal with the gooey, chorizo-filled queso fundido (be careful—that salsa’s very spicy.) Follow that up with a plate of enchiladas suizas, a glass or two of their extremely affordable house wine, and the crepas de cajeta for dessert.
