Morton´s in Mexico City "Palmas"

josephml1 Jun 26, 2009 09:01 PM

I am looking for some comments about the Morton´s steak house in Mexico city, I have been several times in the Chicago Brand, but I don´t know what to expect, please let me know your opinions...

And please let me know if it is good enough to go if I am going to be in Mexico for a week, or do you recommend another steak house...

I am such steak lover...

    You know the Mortons deal, why do it in Mexico also? Have you been to the Rincon Argentino on Masaryk in Polanco? 10 minutes from Lomas de Chapultepec. Argentine steaks have a flavor variance from a different diet (not better or worse, just a nice variance), and are served with great chimichurri sauce. I additionally used to enjoy an appetizer at RA that was a small wheel of baked parmesan. Sabroso, and I have never seen it anywhere else.
    Mortons undoubtedly delivers its own beef for brand consistency. Most mexican beef is from Sonora and adjacent states. I'll choose Argentina and no one needs to cry for me.

      I had a very good meal a couple years ago at Cambalache, also in Polanco and also an Argentinian steak house. Meat was quite good, service was very good. Select your meat and then settle back. Loved the rolling cocktail cart, lots of fun to watch. Sides are really too large to be considered a side but perfectly sized for splitting.

        Ohhh yes Cambalache I remember...very nice steaks, also I love the house salad and the souffle potatoes (I am not sure if that is the real name)...

        Thanks for remind me that very good steak house.

          The caesar salad is also really good and those potatoes are too die for.
