mexi-french fusion? – i happen to stop in this rustic mexican restaurant expecting a classic mexican fair, but what i got was an innovative and creative mexi-french fusion! from the suculent duck tocos to the crab and shrip stuffed pomblano pepper roasted in banna leaves, la fonda puts an impressive spin on your typical mexican dishes but retains the traditional ingredients that make mexican food so delicious! i say french because the head ched has a backgound in french cuisine...and it surly shows! each dish is accompanied by a home-made sauce that not only complements the meal, but adds a flavor unmatched by your average hot sauce! i truly recomend this flavorful addition to wicker park!
Wicker Park BYOB serves rustic Mexican favorites. – Although steadfastly casual, Fonda’s sunset-hued walls and polished dark wood tables hint that the second-generation owners have set the bar higher for this reincarnation of their family’s former taqueria. The standards--tacos, tostadas, burritos--are there for the taking, but more adventurous house specialties modeled after the peasant cuisine of central Mexico, like a chicken breast topped with handmade chorizo, roasted poblanos and Chihuahua cheese, entice diners looking for something new. Looking for more heat and flavor? Six different made-in-house salsa and dipping sauces, from orange-cilantro to ancho chile, encourage mixing and matching.
