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 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...

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...

Eno

Eno

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...

Mercado Roma

Mercado Roma

Oct 24, 2015

Mercado Roma is a premium space in the Roma area of Mexico City jammed packed with high end food vendors.  I have seen something similar in London at Street Feasts at Dalston Yard, and to be honest, I don’t know why more cities don’t have this.  The closest thing that Salt Lake City has is when they have food truck gatherings.  This is not your...

Dulcinea

Dulcinea

Oct 22, 2015

Dulcinea is located in the Polanco area of Mexico City and more specifically the Polancito area of Polanco.  It’s a trendy hipster area of town with a good gastronomic vibe.  One place in particular that I visited twice last month was Dulcinea, an indoor/outdoor eatery open for both breakfast and lunch. We had some lovely weather during our breakfast, so...
