Mexico City, MX 06600

Fondas are the lunch halls of Mexico City serving comida corrida, a three-course midday meal that always starts with soup and ends with something sturdier like mole enchiladas or stewed pork ribs. It's a meal that can be eaten quickly or, if beers and mezcal are involved, can stretch on for hours. At this century-old fonda in Zona Rosa, the waitresses wear frilly aprons and pat you on the shoulder when you order the house specialty: carnitas that come with crispy chicharrones and a side of guacamole.
