Decent Sourdough Bread in DF?
I am on the hunt for sourdough bread. Real, tangy, old-fashioned sourdough.
The only one i have found so far is Enrique Olvera's (of Pujol) store, Eno, on Explanada in Lomas de Chapultepec. They have a round sourdough, and it's just ok - not nearly tangy enough for me.
Plus, if I am not already in that area, it's a pain in the @$$ to get to.
So, has anyone discovered a bakery that has yummy sourdough? If it's located in Condesa, Nápoles or Roma, so much the better.
Here's a long shot:
This chain has several stores in Puebla and one or more in Oaxaca. http://www.hackl.com.mx/index.html
We had some of their bread while in Oaxaca. I think Rosetta's is better, but Hackl's is o.k.
Just picked up this, from their list of tiendas:
Hackl Panaderos artesanos CONDESA DF
Calle Atlixco No. 100 / esquina Michoacan
You'll soon have a lot of choices.
We enjoyed the sourdough boules (called "Pan Campesino", IIRC.) from Rosetta, Calle Colima, Colonia Roma Norte.
You can get a taste of it, without having to buy an entire loaf at Cafe Toscano, Roma Norte, corner of Plaza Río de Janeiro and Orizaba.

I just recalled having some very good bread at Le Pain Quotidien, I think on Avenida Amsterdam # 309 in Condesa. In fact, when we had breakfast there, I had a basket of assorted breads with butter and marmalade. http://tinyurl.com/PainQuot
But overall, I'd give the edge to Rosetta.

Retraction. It was over a year ago that I went to Bistrot Mosaico. Last night para comprobar I went back and it was a big disappointment. Before they offered a selection of breads. This time just a basket of basic sliced bread, all very dry around the crust. The meal was an equal let-down. I'm sure the bread is better earlier in the day but based on that experience I'd have to say never mind.
