- If you're tired of the typical Tex-Mex fare and feel like more genuine Mexican cuisine, head on over to Cantina Machito, near Plaza Virreina and next to Verdi Park cinema, which shows films in their original language with Spanish sub-titles. The gold-coloured walls, a carved wooden pillar and a fountain make for a charming atmosphere. The menu isn't long, but it also goes over the history and traditions associated with each dish. For starters or antojitos, good options include the guacamole, caldo (broth) or ceviche (marinated seafood). The portions aren't all that big, though they are served with flour tortillas. People normally order a few main courses to share. Some of the best include delicious Mole Poblano (turkey in chocolate sauce), Cochinita Pibil (pork) or Tinga (veal). They don't take reservations on the weekend when it gets packed, so show up with plenty of time to spare.
