Afterward, we went out to eat (thanks UNAM!) at Hostería de Santo Domingo, which was founded in 1860. It's decorated in bright, cheerful style and its menu includes many typical Mexican dishes. I ordered a chile en nogada, which is apparently a house specialty, and especially popular in September because of it's red, green and white colors. It's a poblano pepper filled with ground beef/pork mixed with almonds, raisins and olives, covered in a walnut cream sauce with pomegranate on top. It was delicious!
