Summary of Review

Ginger Café was one of them. It has a sleek, but comfortable décor and management that pays attention to the details. As a result, the service better than good.

If you’re Latino, no need to go through the hassle of obtaining a visa to travel to San Diego or Atlanta in the USA. Just head out to Santa Fe in the suburbs of Mexico City. You’ll think you’re in San Diego. Everyone that either lives, works or visits Santa Fe has adopted the same strange attraction to soulless chain restaurants as they have north of the border.

I just hope they don’t form the belief that the food in those hotel pans behind the glass at Panda Express has any resemblance to real Chinese food.

We searched and searched to try and find some quality places to eat in Santa Fe that weren’t located in some big square section of a shopping mall. It wasn’t an easy task, but we did find a few places that we would go back to.

And Ginger Café was one of them. It has a sleek, but comfortable décor and management that pays attention to the details. As a result, the service better than good.

The menu is mostly traditional Mexican cuisine, albeit done in a rather fancified fashion. Despite having a personality and a stylish décor, which most restaurants in Santa Fe cannot claim, the prices were better than reasonable.

For US $9 (179 pesos) I had the three-course prix fixe menu at lunch. An excellent salad with crisp romaine lettuce, bits of strawberries, and a sweet vinaigrette. A more traditional main course. The enchiladas suizas. They looked and tasted a bit more elegant than what you’d get at the typical local fonda. For dessert, a very small portion of a fruit flavored gelatin. The included beverage was the popular local drink, flor de Jamaica flavored water. Much better than cherry Cool-Aid.

Be forewarned. There are no mariachis. Just some pleasant riff of American music playing softly I the background.

There are only handful of restaurant we would whole-heartedly recommend in Santa Fe. This one made that list.
