There are a bunch of these variety stores all over Mexico City, but the one worth going to is inside the La Casa de los Azulejos—we’re talking right in the middle of it. You’ll dine in a large, covered courtyard surrounded by colorful murals, and traditionally dressed waiters will approach your table to recommend the sopa de tortilla, or their staple dish: enchiladas suizas stuffed with chicken in a green salsa and melted swiss cheese. The desserts are fine, but we suggest skipping them. Instead, walk a few minutes to the famous (and equally picturesque) Dulcería de Celaya.
