Fonda el Refugio

166 Liverpool
Mexico City , Mexico
52-55-5525-8128

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.



From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Brazilian barbecue is notorious for its all-you-can-eat <em>rodízio</em> presentation—place a green token on the table, and the waiters will keep bringing food. The servers rushing by with giant skewers at this São Paulo classic (with several branches throughout Brazil and the U.S.) might scare <em>rodízio</em> first-timers, but the 15 cuts of top-quality meat (mostly beef, with some pork and chicken options) are reasons to keep coming back.

We loved: Rump steak, pork ribs, chicken hearts.
