Top 25 Restaurants in Mexico
Do you agree with this list or not? Do you think they really are the top 25 restaurants in Mexico today?
For once, I do think the list is pretty solid.
Of that list, I have only eaten at Café de Tacuba (once for cena and another time for desayuno.) I would not describe either as a great meal. The supper was passable, the breakfast not so.
Where on that list is Nico's México Cuitlahuac? El Bajío (original)? El Cardenal? The several "Azules"?
It's notable that the list has a lot of BCN restaurants, which would appeal to DiningDiva. :-)
I have been to Los Danzantes Oaxaca (good choice), Birriería Las 9 Esquinas (I know a better place in Guadalajara), Café de Tacuba (this restaurant has gone so far downhill it shouldn’t be on anybody’s list), Pitiona (the food was...well, I wouldn't go back unless it has changed a great deal), and Casa Oaxaca (better than Pitiona but IMHO not worthy of the 25-best). Pujol deserves it, Biko maybe. I haven’t been to any of the Baja restaurants—maybe someday I'll get over that way again.
First photo is estofado de lengua, Pitiona.
Second is a fish dish at Casa Oaxaca.
Just my opinions about the others. YMMV.
