While iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s opinion of chilaquiles is not known, she’d likely appreciate the offerings at this breakfast and lunch spot, along with the colorful papel picado banners and pithy Frida-esque dichos (sayings) that dot the decor. Said chilaquiles are offered five ways, each with its own salsa or mole treatment. Egg offerings can come as basic bacon and egg combos, in omelets stacked with poblano chiles and cheese, or in migas. There are also huevos divorciados (with separate but equal portions of red and green salsas). We like to settle in with a deep mug of café de olla and a CDMX favorite, the hefty sincronizada: tortillas layered to perfection with ham, cheese, eggs, and refried beans. If breakfast (served all day) doesn’t appeal, try any of the enchiladas: rojas, suizas, and enmoladas (with cheese and guajillo chile for the first; chicken, cheese and salsa verde for the second, and chicken, cheese and mole sauce for the finish). Barbacoa plates and menudo are also offered, weekends only. And you can even get hipster avocado toast or a tall waffle sandwich stacked with chicken fajitas, cheese, onions, and bacon. Frida wouldn’t raise an eyebrow of disapproval.
