This was an absolutely perfect first stop upon arriving in Mexico City. We muddled through ordering and ended up with a perfect lunch.
I do love a hidden bar. I won’t share many details to respect their wishes to keep the place secret. But the entrance was indeed challenging to find and the drinks great.
As this was my first trip to Mexico City I did not visit the old Pujol so I can’t really compare. But I absolutely loved everything about the design of the new one. And I loved everything about this dinner which has easily been one of the highlights of my year thus far. Some of these were not necessarily super intricate dishes but they were delicious. Fantastic octopus and maybe the best cauliflower dish I have ever had. And why isn’t steak always served with a side of guacamole and a hot pepper? The mole was all that it was advertised to be although admittedly I decided that mole isn’t my favorite thing in the world (but if it was this is certainly the best out there).
