For Monica’s birthday, we all ate at Enrique Olvera’s Pujol — a highly-renowned restaurant along the same worldly acclaim as D.O.M. Restaurante. The meal was a tad more expensive than what we ate in São Paulo, but I have to admit that I loved this food more: the sheer flavors were good as opposed to eclectically interesting. Anyway, here’s a rundown of what we had (the corn with ant mayo was my favorite):
Bocol Huasteco: corn dough with cheese.
Asparagus Chileatole with Mulato Chile Chicharrón.
Chía Tostada with Guacamole.
Smoked Baby Corn in a Powdered Chicatana Ant, Coffee, and Costeño Chile Mayo.
Cuitlacoche with Chicken Liver and Sweatbreads.
Suckling Lamb Taco with Avocado Leaf Adobo and Avocado Puree.
Chicken with Chile Adobo, Nopal, Romeritos, Black Radish, Bean, and Onion Ash.
Tortillas (including Root Beer Leaf Tortilla) with Mole Madre (Aged 3-years) and Mole Nuevo.
Dessert, including cactus sorbet and churros.
