Everything we tried was superlative. The panuchos were the best I have ever had (and I have had a lot!) The suckling pig (lechón) was very tasty as was the corn cake, pastel de elote. For those not familiar, the food from the Yucatán is different from central Mexican food, something in and of itself. And delicious indeed.

We wanted to patronize this overlooked, older restuarant with tacky decor close to our apartment. There is no fault with the food itself, which was very good, only the outrageously sly manner in which it was all presented to us.

and I don't need 3 waiters to bring one plate to the table, but that's what you will get when you eat here. The service from the wait staff is beyond anything I've ever experienced but I don't often ascend into the rarified atmosphere of restaurants such as this one. The restaurant is super nice, super clean, and I imagine... More

Circulo del Sureste is the most frequent place out home where I have lunch. It is a few steps away from work. 4 blocks from Reforma avenue is a walking distance gem from the turistic downtown area. Visited almost only by locals it serves since more than 40 years ago one of the best Yucatan food in Mexico City, since... More
