David and I don't usually spend a lot of food when we travel, but I had read and heard so many wonderful things about El Mural that it went on our "must do" list during our recent weekend trip. We were not disappointed. While this restaurant is by no means expensive for US standards, it gets a $$$ here in Mexico. After tax and tip, our total came to around $36 USD.
El Mural is located in an open roof courtyard just a few blocks south of the zocalo in Puebla City, and it's menu takes you through a journey of Poblano classics (try the cemita cholupa); if you are searching for the best place to try a few different kinds of mole, this is where you come (above: David's chicken enchiladas with three different moles). Not only is the food superb, but the service rivals some of the best establishments we've been to back home.
