Mexican Restaurant “Pujol” Among World’s Best
¨Pujol¨ Francisco Petrarca 254 Polanco, Mexico City (01 55) 5545-4111
Just like movies sketch the reflection of a society in celluloid, Enrique Olvera captures a piece of Mexico in every single one of his dishes. Complex, surrealistic and magical, his cuisine catches the soul of an ancestral culture, and artistically presents it through the lens of modern, world-class gastronomy.
For those fortunate enough to be familiar with the extraordinary array of delicacies that make up Mexican food, Olvera’s flagship restaurant Pujol, offers a haute-cuisine take on a culture that bends time and overlaps the past with the present. Pre-Hispanic ingredients such as insects and chiles, interact with other elements through the alchemy of modern techniques to delight guests with a piece of this fascinating country.
For those of you with the impression that Mexican food does not go far beyond your chain burrito establishment, a stop at Pujol is a must if you are interested in experiencing authentic Mexico in one single bite.
Pujol is the first restaurant in Mexico to be inducted into the prestigious San Pellegrino List of the World’s Fifty Best Restaurants, by Restaurant magazine. The private, understated establishment is a treasure to be found in the heart of Polanco, Mexico City’s financial district.
I feel so privileged to have dined at Pujol. It was like being in an edible gallery. Usually you are banned from touching the art, but at Pujol you are granted the opportunity to become one with it. Wow!
Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I agree! Pujol is a showcase of edible Mexican History.
