Inexpensive, reliable comida corrida Jul 07, 2010
This may or may not be a lunch-only establishment. It's kind of a hole-in-the-wall place just east of the big shopping complex on Insurgentes. They have a full menu for ordering a la carte, but the main attraction here is the daily three-course lunch menu, which does not change from day to day. For entradas, the consomé de camarones is good, as is the "quesadilla" de cazón (which is actually dogfish wrapped in a corn tortilla and deep fried); the pescado al ajillo (for the plato fuerte) is really the star of the menu, though.

Portions are kinda small, and the lunch menu doesn't include a drink, but I have yet to find anywhere else that serves such tasty seafood at such a modest price. (65 pesos for the fixed menu, ca. summer 2008.) The restaurant is pretty tiny, even taking into account the back room; service is fast and the waitstaff is friendly.
