Restaurant Review for Litoral - Mexico City

Litoral is hidden away on Avenida Tamaulipis in Condesa amidst a variety of burger and taco stands, bars and pizzerias. We had been looking for something new that was a bit more upscale than most the restaurants in the area and this one looked promising. So, we gave it try for lunch.

As I usually do, I was taking photos right and left. The manager was curious and made inquiry. He began suggesting things and the chef was within ear shot and came up and put in his two cents asking me to try the tasting menu.

What the heck. I threw all caution to the wind and said, “Let’s do it.” It was a shorter than usual version of a tasting menu. Only 248 pesos to try an array of the chef’s wares. What did I have to lose (other than the 248 pesos)?

What followed was a display of some the most sophisticated cooking and plating I’ve witnessed in Mexico City. It was on par with the city’s most acclaimed restaurants. Yes. As good or better than Quintonil. As good as Pujol without all the red tape. What a delight.

I’m going to keep it very short and refrain from a detailed blow by blow explanation. But the photos say more than I could. Just take note that every dish tasted just as delicious as it looks in the photos.

First up, four perfectly executed morsels of two to three bites each. Followed by four more of the same. I then had a main-course fish dish that was perfectly cooked from the al la carte menu. Simple. But perfectly executed.

Then the two desserts courses from that mini-tasting-menu followed. A velvety luxurious chocolate mousse that was like a chocolate cloud and a little pastry cup with a hint of anise flavor filled with a cactus fruit and cardamom cream filling.

The presentation was outstanding. The execution was flawless on everything. This place is rarely talked about in the press, but not for long. This chef has talent. If they can pay attention to the details and push the décor to the next level this restaurant could be on par with the top restaurants in Latin America.
