On Saturday, after visiting the art exhibit at the Palace of Fine Arts, Alejandro and I walked a couple blocks to one of our favorite restaurants in Mexico City... "El Cardenal".
To begin, we ordered this appetizer of avocado slices, cheese (home-made at the restaurant owner's ranch) and green sauce along with tortillas freshly made from scratch. Our beverage was an "agua fresca" of pineapple and mint.
... and I had a "sopa seca" (a "dry soup" which is a rice or pasta dish). This is my favorite "dry soup", noodles flavored with chipotle chiles.
If anyone knows of a restaurant in the United States that serves anything comparable in terms of taste and authenticity, I would like to know.
