NileGuide Expert tip:
The restroom entrance is outside of the restaurant; be sure to ask for directions!
For a different variety of Mexican food than found throughout most of the city, head over to Nopalito. Meaning "little piece of cactus," Nopalito serves rustic Mexican cuisine in a casual atmosphere. All-local, organic ingredients create exceptionally fresh dishes such as tamales and carnitas, at impressively reasonable prices. The cocktails are unique as are the desserts. It's a difficult decision of what to order, but while you decide, nosh on the totopos con chile. They don't take reservations and seating is first come first serve. Be prepared to wait, but it's worth it.
