Paxia

I was so excited about this trip to Mexico, so the hotel and the restaurants were booked two weeks ago before our departure. It is my first time to try a mexico cuisine in a fine dining way, I can not tell curious I am.
Our waiter name Alejandro,  it is the only things that I understood. He is a very nice guy, explain the dish with patient, even though he knew that I can not understand the Spanish. Now I feel so sorry about him, because I took plenty of photos and I did not even pretend to hear.


When this dish is coming up, I know the whole meal gonna be very interesting. Peel the plastic, a piece of bread is jumping out. Peel the bread, a piece of meat is jumping out, wrap after wrap, like a gift at Christmas eve.

I bet you are very familiar with this if you are a Mexican, it is a old version of a Mexico city's metro ticket. When a dish turn this fun, who gonna cares about taste.

Eating in foreign always take more courage, because you never know what is exactly in your plate. I can't tell what is just looking at. It is actually raw shrimp. I am a tartare holic, so I have been eaten a lot of kind raw ingredient, like bison,wapiti and other weird stuff, but raw shrimp, it is very first time. However, the dish taste pretty good, lot of flavors mix together explode like a bomb.
Fried worm, wanna take a shot?



Tacos, the food you can never ride of whatever eating on the street or in a fancy restaurant.

This is a egg yolk, take the container and swallow through your throat.

This is damn good, the best dish of the meal, the best dish of the year or I am thinking best dish forever. A raw egg yolk is hiding in the middle, you blend the guacamole and the tacos chips, heaven melt in the mouth.








The two desserts are very different than the american style dessert. At north american, the chef is more familiar with nut and chocolate those kind of ingredient, however if you see the fruit, 80% of chance that they are the berries or orange. This time, the tropical fruits had been mostly use, taste very fresh.

This restaurant deserve me to come back, you don't have the feeling to eat in a restaurant like a usual dinner, it most like explore a new cuisine in a very fun way! This place is defiantly a 10!
