Useful information


Festive and friendly with happy hour margaritas that flow like the Rio Grande, Café Frida is almost better than it needs to be, considering its high-traffic location across from the Museum of Natural History. Overall, it feels like a rustic and welcoming hacienda. The extensive tequila list complements the relatively economical fare, showcasing traditional moles.

Peruse the menu while delving into the guacamole served in a comal with crisp chips and fiery habanero sauce on the side. Don’t miss the clear and warming sopa Azteca, a restorative consommé bobbing with chicken, cactus leaf and abundant vegetables as well as an array of accompaniments. Finally, tlacoyos spread with a creamy fava purée and slow-cooked pork carnitas are muy buenas.
