Romina – Polanco – Mexico City

Romina – Polanco – Mexico City

I’m not sure I can even say I’ve really ever had great Italian food. Perhaps until tonight. I wasn’t in Brooklyn, New York. Nor in Milan. Oddly enough, the best Italian food I’ve had in my rather storied life is in Mexico City.

Jaso – Polanco – Mexico City

Jaso – Polanco – Mexico City

The decor is not quite right, but not as gaudy as Dulce Patria. Service staff seemed a bit confused and flustered. That didn’t really affect service after the first course however. The food was surprisingly good.

Dulce Patria – Polanco – Mexico City

Centro Café – Nápoles – Mexico City

Centro Café – Nápoles – Mexico City

Not as trendy and hip as nearby Hey! Brew Bar. Variety of coffee blends. Informative staff. Good venue for coffee aficionados and coffee novices alike.

Biko – Polanco – Mexico City

Biko – Polanco – Mexico City

Highly praised restaurant in Polanco offering eclectic gourmet cuisine with Basque influence. A la carte menu or seven course tasting menu for about US$60. A disappointment.

Baja Streetfood – Mexico City

Rio Lerma in Cuauhtémoc has no shortage of restaurants. Some are chain restaurants like Fiebra de Malta and others are your typical, “I’ve got a recipe, I think I’ll open a restaurant” sort of establishment. Some good. Some bad.

Merotoro – Condesa – Mexico City

Merotoro – Condesa – Mexico City

Modern but warm and inviting ambiance. Great execution of modern Mexican fusion. First class service. One of Coma Beba’s Top 5 in Mexico City.
