Lunch at Café de Tacuba

Café de Tacuba, a renowned and historic restaurant in Mexico City, was established in 1912. The café is housed in a building that dates back to the colonial era, reflecting the architectural style of that period.

Over the years, Café de Tacuba has become famous for its traditional Mexican cuisine and its charming interior, which features colonial-style décor, tiled walls, and antique furnishings. And today, we visited it:

We started our meal with “Chuchulucos Tacuba miniatura,” a dish that was both novel and delicious for us. These little bites packed a flavorful punch, perfectly encapsulating the essence of Mexican spices and cooking techniques.

However, the “Tostada especial Tacuba de pollo deshebrado con quesillo” was less impressive. The dish, while promising with its shredded chicken and quesillo (a type of cheese), was overwhelmed by an excess of cheese and really dried meat that no amount of salsa can salvage the experience of.

Despite this, Café de Tacuba’s ambiance, adorned with traditional décor and resonating with the hum of lively conversations, made our visit a memorable experience. This cup of chocolate is cool:
