Below, we review a few of our favorite restaurants featured in recent months on our "Talk of the Town", whose name is, indeed, "borrowed" from The venerable New Yorker.
Relevant and recent posts:
Casquivana (Chiapas 173, Roma) is a fine new bar/restaurant specializing in regional tacos. Below, tacos de lengua, gordita de venado, esquites, mezcal de alacrán
Who doesn't like dumplings? Buns & Dumplings, Mercado Carmen, Amargura 5, San Angel is Chef Luís Chiu's (of Asian Bay fame) new venture. It's a stand in the back of the promising new Mercado Carmen. "Buns" i.e. steamed open bread filled with slow cooked pork belly or succulent duck breast hit all the marks as do the steamed dumplings and won tons. This is no fusion-confusion, it's the real thing.
Umami BBQ D.F.'s most eccentric chef, Quim Jardí, formerly of La Rauxa, is back doing banh mi, craft burgers and what he promises to be the best pizzas in DF. Visit his Umami BBQ at Sonora 86 in Roma/Condesa. Oh, and there are bbq ribs too.
Olivier Dekeyser is a pâtissier divine. He does Belgian style cakes and pastries to order for any occasion; see his site: http://elpostrebelga.mx/
