Concierge.com's insider take:

Sometimes it seems that you can find any kind of food in Mexico City except Mexican. Los Danzantes, in the southern suburb of Coyoacán, takes care of that. You'll find dishes made with traditional ingredients, such as a flat leaf called hoja santa (here stuffed with cheese from Oaxaca) and a zucchini blossom called flor de calabaza (in a delicious soup). If you're brave, try huitlacoche, carefully translated on the menu as "corn mushroom." It's actually a fungus that grows on kernels of corn, and it's a delicacy in these parts. Try it stuffed in ravioli, where you can enjoy the flavor without having to contemplate the blackish color. Grab a table on the covered terrace, which overlooks the gorgeous main square. If you're here on a weekend, vendors from the weekly market will offer you everything from faded postcards to handmade jewelry—a blessing or a curse, depending on your point of view.

Open daily 1 to 11 pm.
