"Coyoacan" means "place where they have coyotes," and nothing better describes this stretch of Graham Avenue. Well, maybe not. Mesa Coyoacan constitutes a great addition to a burgeoning restaurant row, offering updated Mexican fare and along with beer, wine, and sangria. A grilled cactus salad provides the perfect starter, then on to the tacos, three per order, made with those little tiny corn tortillas popular on the streets of Mexico City (our favorite is the fiery Pueblan chicken filling called tinga). Flavored with avocado leaves, the lamb mixiotes is a splendid heap of meat wrapped in parchment and steamed in beer, an authentic Mexican entrée rarely seen in the city. The place also has a few unaccountably Argentine flourishes, such as a chimichurri among the table sauces.
