La Condesa: Great Eats, but that Wait is Rough

This is the only drawback to the beautiful genius that is La Condesa. It's a good thing the art on the walls is so mesmerizing, because if it weren't, and I didn't know what the food was like, I'd up and leave.

Nonetheless, I'm glad I stuck around. (It doesn't hurt that there's an entire gourmet salsa bar at your fingertips. Try the strawberry salsa. Thank me later.)

There's plenty variety throughout the menu. In fact, it's kind of like a mini map of Mexico. You've got your Baja specialty, and then your Oaxacan specialty, and then there's your Yucatan specialty... so brush up on your geography.

I dove right into the heart of Mexico with the Oaxaca mole, the Aztec Tinga, and the Mayan Cochinita Pibil tacos.

This review was poorly written, rambling, and really gave the reader very little information about the restaurant or its food. If you're going to give someone the task of eating his or her way down such a delicious street of food, at least employ someone who knows how communicate with the reader. 


By the way, La Condesa is amazing.


OK. Now that La Condesa has gained the recognition from Chow Bella, it's time to get rid of the Gladware containers on the salsa bar ! With this much press and business, they can afford some attractive serving bowls !
