Eating Veracruz in Mexico City


Whenever I'm in Mexico City, I hint to my friends that it sure would be grand to make a stop at La Fonda del Recuerdo. They have good food from the region and lots of singing and booze and I always end up having a good time.


At my age, this is what I want a party to look like. A huge platter of oysters and seafood and lots of beer to wash it all down.


The music of the region is pretty wonderful too. Musica Jarocha has influences of the Caribbean, Africa, Spain and of course the rest of Mexico. The players often sing a call and response type of music and the harp is a monster, keeping the beat and the harmony on the long strings with the left hand, and the melody and improve is on the upper, smaller strings with the right hand. I can't get enough of it.
