Had a lovely four-hour lunch there yesterday. Great casual rustic-elegant atmosphere, very pleasant on a Tuesday afternoon, most of the time there was just one other party and a couple of people who came and went at the bar. More people started showing up around 4:30. I think all the other customers were rich Mexicans. Friendly and polished service.
I forgot to ask what that cracker thing is. Seemed like Sardinian carta di musica with seasonings. Bichi Nebbiolo rosé was delicious.
Octopus tostada with lentils and avocado puree. Great.
Octopus “gordita” wasn’t the fresh-masa item I expected. Great filling, quite different from the tostada.
Beet tacos. Very good, though next time I’d skip in favor of the salad.
Beef “TaCoreans.” More Chinese, really. Beef was really tasty. I was getting pretty bored by the tortillas at this point. I’m used to upscale places making a variety for different dishes.
Bichi Nebbiolo Tinto, one of the best Mexican reds I’ve had. Definitely natty but fruity and delicious.
Pig ears, delicious and crunchy, had to restrain myself to avoid killing what was left of my appetite. Beet salad. More damn blue tortillas.
Pork shank confit, sort of Mexican cassoulet. Awesome. Good thing I saved some appetite.
I thought the espresso was too bitter so I got some milk, then it was excellent.
Total before tip was $2375 MXN / $140 USD. The wines were about half that. Great value and thanks to all who recommended the place.
