14. August 2012: Restaurant Vips

| August 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

“Arrachera Mexicana” (124 MXN) is a simple but rich dish – while the Frijoles calientes are of average taste, the corn with rajas is pretty tasty but also quite spicy for European standards. The chilaquiles (red and white sauce with corn chips) are quite tasty and rich. But what is truly outstanding is the juicy meat. Especially in combination with the sauces.

The “Jugo Verde” (15 MXN) is made of “Nopales” – and is quite refreshing. The service is friendly but quite slow – and she put the dishes prepared right next to our table and then she waited like four minutes until she put the plates on our table. The atmosphere of place is pretty simple and not outstanding at all – but comfortable anyway.

Overall, if you are somewhere close to the Vips, it is okay to pass by but honestly, there are so many more great places on the streets of Mexico City where you get non-standardized real Mexican food.

I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org. Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.
