Today I went the picturesque Mexico City borough of Coyoacán. After wandering around for a couple of hours I was ready for something to eat. Facing the shady plaza of Santa Catarina is a little restaurant called Mesón Antiguo Santa Catarina (Old Santa Catarina Inn).
I was taken upstairs to a table on the terrace. The décor is very colorful and traditional.
I started with an order of "sopecitos", little circles of corn dough piled with frijoles, tomatoes, chicken, shredded lettuce, cheese and cream.
I then had a "chile relleno", a poblano pepper stuffed with Manchego cheese, dipped in batter and fried, and covered with a mild tomato sauce.
