A restaurant that's been around for many years, I first went here about 20 years ago. Now they have opened several more throughout Puebla. This is the original one. For the most authentic, original Mole Poblano made in the city that it originated you can't...More

Visited with a large group of Mexican family and tried different things on the menu. They were all good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I especially enjoyed three different moles. The place is decorated in traditial Mexican style and they offer a valet parking...More
