  1. I’m familiar with some, but will have to visit the others in July. Where is Itanoni? I tried to find it once, but no success. I like Maria Bonita too.

    • I only see 9 restaurants on your list. May I suggest the addition of a very informal spot: the corn lady on the east side of the Llano Park after 6 most every night (the “soup, or esquites, is delicious and not to be missed and a bench surrounded by families enjoying the park offers the best seat in the house). Our host family told us she has been serving food here for years and it is one of their family favourites. With all the fabulous places to eat I did catch 4 on your list. I had my first and very enjoyable introduction to huitlacoche at La Florecita.

  2. Ellen, Itanoni is located in Belisario Dominguez itanoni.com.mxhttp://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&rls=en&q=itanoni&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&sa=N&tab=wl
