Mina La Blanca Restaurant Bar

Top choice mexican in Pachuca

Pachuca’s most famous restaurant, La Blanca has been serving traditional hidalguense food, including pastes, ximbo (chicken and pork pit-roasted with maguey leaves) and a mean caldo de hongo (mushroom soup), since 1953. The walls, adorned with B&W photos and stained-glass windows depicting industrial mining scenes, speak of Pachuca’s history. This is also a great place to come for a low-key drink.

Those with adventurous tastes can try the local speciality chinicuiles (red maguey caterpillars), in season October and November.
