The Gardens of Taxco

You’re in good hands at this so-retro-it’s-hip joint—with mariachis. Forget menus. “The best chicken mole in town!” sings (yes, sings) the waiter. We love: quesadillas with guacamole, sopa de albóndigas, enchiladas, taquitos, and the thick, sweet chicken mole. For dessert, bananas in a mixture of three creams arrives with a tiny glass of sherry. When the bill comes, you know why folks are waiting on benches outside.
