D.O.M.

D.O.M.

Feb 18, 2017

D.O.M from Sao Paolo and Chef Alex Atala came in at number 11 on the list of the world’s 50 greatest restaurants, and also featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table in season 2 episode 2.  I would highly recommend watching the Netflix show because I think for me personally describes why I love both travel and food.  It serves as a bridge and away to...

Quintonil

Quintonil

Jan 2, 2017

Quintonil in the Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City was my second visit to a restaurant on the World’s Greatest 50 list.  (the other one Pujol, is also in Mexico City).  Of all of the great restaurants on the list there are obviously some very expensive places, as well as places that are really hard to get into.  Quintonil is one of the cheapest if not...

Pujol

Pujol

Nov 22, 2016

I’m writing this review as my first review of a restaurant on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.  It ended up being my first of 2 visits to the list during my week long business trip in Mexico City.  My visit was during some of the final months of Pujol‘s location in the gastronomic Polanco area of Mexico City.  They will be moving to a...

El Bajio

El Bajio

Jan 1, 2016

El Bajio near Chapultapec park in Mexico City has been serving fresh authentic Mexico food for over 40 years.  It is widely regarded as one of the top restaurants in Mexico City, which is saying something because Mexico City has a LOT of great restaurants.  The building has vaulted ceilings and decorated with Mexican colors and the Virgin of Guadalupe.  Had a...

Lalo

Lalo

Jan 1, 2016

Lalo restaurant located in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City.  It is one of the restaurants of chef Eduardo Garcia who also owns Maximo Bistro across the street.  Lalo is a breakfast and lunch diner, that I had breakfast at during my first day in Mexico City.  I’ve said before and I’ll say it again just in case you haven’t read some of my...

Corazon de Alcachofa

Corazon de Alcachofa

Jan 1, 2016

The cool thing about Corazon Alcachofa is the menu.  They wheel it around to you and tell you how many of each item remains in the restaurant.  It is definitely an approach I’ve never seen before, but also gives the feeling that there is not a kitchen full of frozen items waiting to be served, but everything is indeed fresh. True to the name of the...

Chapulin

Chapulin

Jan 1, 2016

Chapulín was certainly one of the coolest restaurants I visited in Mexico City.  You walk up a winding flat pathway to a restaurant that is as well decorated as the food tastes good.  Even the restrooms are cool, there are rooms that seem to be hidden in the walls, everything was a great experience here.  Chapulín is located in the middle of the...

Porfirios

Mexico City may just be one of the best food cities in the entire world.  Mexican food in general is delicious, but turns out the Mexicans actually do it better than the rest of us.  On my first night in Mexico, I had the privilege of meeting up with one of my clients and their spouse for dinner and some sight-seeing.  They asked me what I wanted to eat, and of...

Cueva Carvajal

Cueva Carvajal

Oct 31, 2015

Cueva Carvajal was easily one of the highlights of my Mexico trip.  To eat here though, we had to take a 2 hour airplane trip north to Monterrey, one of the 3 biggest cities in Mexico. (along with D.F, and Guadalajara)  Monterrey was a literal breath of fresh air, and reminded me a lot about Utah actually.  The city has a mountain range that runs along side of...

Eno

Eno

Oct 28, 2015

A few doors down from famous Mexico City restaurant Pujol is Eno.  I’m not the best with Mexico City history and I don’t know how long Eno has been doing business, but one of my friends in D.F comes here for breakfast at least once a week.  And of course when we talk about breakfast in Mexico, there is a chance they do chilaquiles, so of course I am...
