Mexican Cuisine $$$$
Dine in the former home of the Count of La Valenciana, across the street from his other creation, La Valenciana church. You can eat on the patio or in one of the dining rooms. The menu combines old standards and original recipes. For an appetizer, try a fresh salad or refreshing gazpacho served in a vessel encased in ice. For a main course, you can choose one of Mexico’s traditional dishes, such as chicken mole or enmoladas (chicken-filled tortillas rolled in mole), or perhaps chicken breast a la flor de calabaza (in a mild, satisfying cream sauce of blended squash flowers and poblano chile). The shady patio is so relaxing and the chairs so comfortable that many linger here over coffee and dessert.
