In order to celebrate this, and to honor my beloved country and city, I decided to make a collaboration with Michelle from michelleonbell.com : a friend, Mexican food blogger and also previous school college from Les Roches! What a better way to bring Mexico to the table than on this very special occasion of our National Party!
Here in Geneva we have El Catrin that you should already know, and of course I will be there tonight to celebrate! But in case you are planning a Mexican Escapade to the vibrant city a.k.a Mexico City here are the MUST TRY according to a local connoisseur
Inside the Presidente Intercontinental hotel in the heart of Polanco, you will find Chapulín a restaurant that honors the diversity and cultural richness Mexico offers. Although Chapulín serves a variety of local Mexican dishes, it is heavily influenced by the gastronomy of the state of Oaxaca, where the chef Josefina López Méndez is from.
The restaurant’s high-end ambiance includes a unique design and decoration, which reflects modern day Mexico City. With ceiling to floor windows, open spaces and walls covered with thousands of pieces of clay with diverse designs and colors, diners will sure be surprised. The food is as impressive as the interior design; some of the signature dishes include the tacos de lechón (pork), the shrimp ceviche with watermelon, the fish with chichilo (type of mole) and the ribeye with fig sauce. For dessert I highly recommend trying the buñuelo (crunch and flat fried dough) with cheese mouse or the roasted strawberries with a hint of green chile.
