“Outstanding New Restaurant in San Angel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I was delighted to find chef Margarita Carrillo now with Turtux in the south of Mexico City. Everything she does is done with such art, such care, as they say, hecho con mucho, mucho cariño. I had the watermelon tostada with the most perfectly spiced guacamole; a salad of herbs and lettuces and a toasted ear of baby corn; then the chile San José, which was stuffed with shrimp and goat cheese. Dessert was "crujiente de platano," a lightly fried banana with a caramel tequila sauce, poured from a tiny rustc jug. What was especially exciting was to find this new restaurant in the south because most restaurants of this quality are up in Polanco and yonder. (Yes, the San Angel Inn with its historic patio and terraces is lovely but the food doesn't begin to compare to the wonders of Margarita Carrillo's.) Turtux is pricey but for what for what it is-- absolutely top quality-- quite reasonable. This would be a place to try if you're in going to be in the south (Coyoacan, Chimalistac, San Angel) and looking for the a chance to try the very best in modern Mexican cuisine.
