Phoenix New Times' Description

Like its name, which translates to, “the corner of Distrito Federal,” or the Federal District, also known as Mexico City, this Sunnyslope restaurant, in business since 2002, seems to have been plucked straight from its urban setting. A well-worn, non-descript spot beloved by the locals, this family-owned restaurant is no-frills at its finest, cash only and dirt cheap, and home to some exceptional real-deal Mexican street food -- including a few tough-to-find gems you may never have heard of. Start with the restaurant’s specialty, the huaraches, and then move on to gigantic quesadillas, street tacos, or a smoky pambazo sandwich. The restaurant’s only dessert, gelatina de flor, may be more for looks than its whisper-sweet taste, but when’s the last time you ate a paperweight-like dome of clear gelatin with a single, brightly colored flower made of food coloring trapped inside?
