In a neighborhood not unsaturated with upmarket restaurants, Fonda takes the cake. A chef born in Mexico City and lauded in Austin whips up comida sabrosa on this southern stretch of 7th Ave. A lovely garden in back offers a quiet respite and most important a killer meal Friendly, attentive service to boot. I ordered the enchiladas suizas with scrambled eggs for $12 with a mimosa for brunch. This dish is also available with chicken tinga. My suizas were smothered in a super tasty green tomatillo sauce. I asked for chips and they brought over(gratis) some house fried giant salty ones with spicy red sauce. Other great sounding options are the shrimp enchiladas for $15 or the french toast served with piloncillo syrup, whipped cream and sugared pecans for $10.
