When I heard Anthony Bourdain claim that breakfast at Fonda Margarita was some of the best he ever had, I was skeptical. I grew more skeptical still when I read various reviews describing eating here as "life changing." But I'm happy to report that breakfast...More

Tucked away in a very nice residential area near Insurgentes Ave. This place is worth the drive. Highly recommended by Vice Mexico. I had to try it and now recommend it. Fonda Margarita was the highlight of my restaurants. Americans: Don’t expect a table for...More

I arrived at 6:30am on a Friday. Immediately seated, and I just said give me the good stuff. I’m not sure what it was, but damn it was good. Not sold on the traditional Mexican coffe yet, but I could get used to it. They...More

We went early on Sunday morning and waited no more than 5 minutes. The restaurant is located in a trendy, beautiful, neighborhood next to a park. We ordered about half of the menu (no joke) and didn't have a single bad bite. The prices were...More

Like most travellers, I assume, I found this via Anthony Bourdain. I got up as early as I could and travelled across town on the metro. I walked the few blocks to this non-descript location, passing by ladies selling lotto tickets. The atmosphere is simple...More

I saw the Anthony Bourdain segment about Fonda Margarita, and I was also clued into this place by our Mexican distributor/customer. It is definitely the type of place that would end up on a food show; extremely busy, out-of-the-way, and exotically plain. We waited in...More
