A restaurant with a fantastic history, LaOpera has been around since 1900, having been made particularly famous by abullet hole left behind the revolutionary Pancho Villa, who in his excitement,let his gun go off during a celebration. Indeed, Mexico’s National Institute ofAnthropology and History considers this place a national gem. Sitting insidethough, you would be forgiven for thinking you were in nineteenth centuryFrance, until the food was served. Then of course, you would recognise thatthis place is a homage to Mexico, with dishes both from here and Spain, such aspaella, or the ternera al horno (baked veal),which is the most asked for dish. If you keep your eyes peeled, you will nodoubt see a stream of Mexico’s most prominent politicians and businessmen, wholike to dine here for all the reasons mentioned above.
