Fodor's Expert Review Restaurante Chon

$$ Centro Histórico Mexican

This unpretentious family-style restaurant, deep in a downtown working-class neighborhood, is famed for its menu of pre-Hispanic dishes. A knowledge of zoology, Spanish, and Nahuatl helps in making sense of a menu that includes ingredients from throughout the republic that have been used by indigenous people for centuries. Escamoles de hormiga (red-ant roe) is known as the "caviar of Mexico" for its texture and costliness; other exotic dishes may include armadillo, crocodile, and the frightening-looking gar fish.
