Quesadilla lady in Mexico City

ckshen | Dec 2, 201005:11 PM

Went to D.F. a week ago and was ready to visit some of the places that Bourdain sampled in his Mexico episode. We wanted to try the quesadilla made by Anastasia the quesadilla lady. So we took the metro to the Chilpancingo station and walked to the location provided by the show web site (Chilpancingo/ Huatusco). Did not see the snack stand there. A bit bummed, we decided to walked along the Chilpancingo street back to the station to see if she has moved her stand. Found it at the south east corner of the intersection of Chilpancingo/ Bajio, which is a few blocks away.

Tried one quesadilla between the two of us. the blue corn tortilla was very light, fluffy and delicious. The ingredients you can tell are very fresh. we had one with mostly some 'green looking vegetables' (pardon my inability to ask her what exactly it is). Compared to most street food that usually overly rely on salt and grease to provide flavor, she has a very light touch in her approach.

She asked whether we came because of the television (at least i think that's what she was asking because of my very limited spanish). we were a bit bummed to have the space for only one quesadilla since we just filled up on a big breakfast at Fonda Margarita, further down the Insurgentes. we paid for it and left. how i wish i was able to tell her that we'd like to eat more but can't. (If somebody on chowhound is eating there soon, please pass along our high praise for her quesadilla for us!) and how we wished we had some of her quesadillas with us during our long bus ride later that day!
