Mexico City's Traditional Fondas
A fonda is a small, family-run diner in Mexico where anyone can eat classic home-style dishes, picked from a fixed-price “menu of the day.” In this MUNCHIES special, produced for the food symposium Mesámerica 2014 in Mexico City, VICE México host Daniel Hernández takes us on a shotgun 24-hour tour covering three of the most emblematic fondas in this huge metropolis. Buen provecho!
