Loma Linda remains one of my favorite two Argentinian restaurants in Mexico City. A friend at the American Embassy first introduced me to the Reforma location 26 years ago and whenever I am in the city, I try and have a dinner with friends or solo. The atmosphere, service and quality of the food remains excellent. The neighborhood atmosphere is relaxing and away from the busyness of Reforma.
Dinners begin with well-prepared margarita’s while one studies the menu. I’m not sure why I like looking at the menu as I tend to order the same items. I do enjoy their Cesar salads, so that will be the first item. Then I tend to move on to beef and they have a nice variety of cuts, more similar to the cuts in Buenos Aires versus in the United States. The 500 gram Bife de Loma is wonderful and always at the requested rare to medium rare. The times that I have not had beef, it has been because of a hunger for their garlic shrimp, which are very good.
Their chimichurri is as good as I have experienced in Argentina. They do sell their sauces, including chimichurri, but I have not purchased as my assumption is that they would not be allowed on the plane back to the United States.
It is nice, that after all these years, Loma Linda remains a great dining choice.
