Today we went to a fonda since my dad has been wanting to go to one for a while
Hello, again. My dad and I, and sometimes my mom comes along too, have been going out on the town to find some of the best not so well known cheap eats, mostly family-owned, restaurants that we can find. We go out almost every day, finding some new little place, or big place, to tell you about and review the food and prices.
My dad is a big fan of taco stands and fondas, and he enjoys going to them much more than going to any regular restaurant. But, we haven’t gone to one in a long time, and he’s really been wanting to. So, today he just had to go to a fonda, and we decided to stop at a little place we’ve driven by hundreds of times. It’s called Cocina Tito’s and is located on Calle Viena 289 in Valentin Gomez Farias, so it’s super close to many different places and neighborhoods.
Right off the bat I want to say that this fonda isn’t the fanciest you’ll see or even the tastiest you’ll try, but they’re super low cost and pretty darn good! For a plate of beans, rice, a salad, a main meal of your choice, and a fresh water it is only 65 pesos! There are also other meals that aren’t part of the comida corrida package, and most of them cost around 70-75 pesos.
I got chilaquiles, which came with beans and a salad, and I also got a small chocolate milk to drink. The chilaquiles were crispy yet also soft without being too soggy or mushy. Basically, they were perfect. The sauce was a mixture of guajillo chiles and a bit of tomato, and it was super flavorful. It was also perfectly seasoned, so I didn’t need to add any salt!
My mom got an omelet with ham, cheese, onion, and tomatoes and a coffee to drink. It was actually cooked in butter, so it had a nice, rich flavor to it. And the ingredients were evenly distributed, so every bite was full of cheese, ham, and veggies. It was a very simple meal, but it was also very good. My mom really liked it.
My dad is the only one who got the comida corrida deal, and he choose machaca for his meal. He says it is one of the best machacas he’s tasted, and what makes it even better is the salsa. Every day it’s freshly made, and when we got there it was still warm. Also, the homemade tortillas are just as fresh and yummy, and my dad also loves them very much!
