Summary of Review

Bravo. Bravo. That pretty much says it all. Another brilliantly conceived, decorated, and run restaurant. And the food is great. The word “lonchería” comes from the English word lunch, frequently used in Mexico City for a more informal mid-day meal than the traditional “almuerzo”. And lonchería is the name of the place that serves sandwiches, salads, and other handheld foods.

Bravo. Bravo. That pretty much says it all. Another brilliantly conceived, decorated, and run restaurant. And the food is great. The word “lonchería” comes from the English word lunch, frequently used in Mexico City for a more informal mid-day meal than the traditional “almuerzo”. And lonchería is the name of the place that serves sandwiches, salads, and other handheld foods.

So Bravo Lonchería specializes on those type of food that have been staple in North American culture for a few decades. Sandwiches (“tortas” in Mexico) and salads. They also have a few light appetizers, “tostados” (what we know in Tex-Mex lingo as “nachos”) and soup.

I know a few folks that eat waffles and eggs at every meal. If you’re like those guys, they’ve got you covered at Bravo. Waffles, French toast, and some unique egg dishes including one featuring huitlacoche, a fungus that grows on corn. Doesn’t sound that appetizing. But then, neither do worms, but they eat those in Mexico too.

We were in search of the best sandwiches in Mexico City, so we ordered the house speciality, the Ahogado Bravo. Bits of chopped turkey and a top-secret relish, drowned in a spicy tomato-chile salsa. Take a look at the images and you’ll see why I like this place so much. Any place that issues plastic gloves to wear so you can eat a sandwich has to have some good sandwiches.

These are among the best tortas in town and their reasonably priced. And the rest of the menu is up to snuff as well. A pleasant ambience, good music, and friendly service (although no English speakers on the day visited the place).

This place is in a dead heat with the sandwiches at Porchetta Pork House for the best sandwiches in town.
