Restaurante Pujol — Polanco

Pujol Bar Area
The whole experience was fantastic at Pujol after a long day of exploring Teotihuacan. It was pretty exciting to be going to one of the best restaurants in the world after seeing an ancient city.

In fact, Pujol was named as the best restaurant in Mexico by the Wall Street Journal and ranked 4th in the world by Restaurant Magazine. The chef is Enrique Olvera who trained at the Culinary Institute of America and oversees the onboard business class menu on Aeromexico airline. Chef Olvera also has a menu of special dishes and paired wines at the Amex Centurion Club at Benito Juarez International airport. 

We had a delightful meal, the restaurant was fun with a nice bar area that is beautifully decorated inside. Upon arrival they showed us to a superb table and our female server put us at ease and was attentive throughout dinner. We found the food to be sensational — from the Street Snacks, sweet corn with fire ant mayo — all the way to the simple seeming perfection 1517 day Mole Madre.

Every dish was delicious and we found that the more adventurous and unusual the choice, the more we were rewarded.

Pujol is easy to find at 133 Tennyson in the charming Polanco neighborhood. The service was excellent and our waiter spoke impeccable English. We had a perfect bottle of wine from Guadalupe Valley in Baja California. The tasting menu was full of delightful surprises and we will return there the next time we're in Mexico City. 

Highly recommended!
