There aren’t that many great restaurants in the San Miguel Chapultepec colonia despite it being such a centrally-located neighborhood. That’s why we’re glad we have Mari Gold, a Mexican and Indian restaurant that should be your go-to meal after you visit the nearby art gallery Kurimanzutto. Open for breakfast and lunch only, Mari Gold combines Mexican and Indian cuisine into one delicious mix.
Even though the space is pretty small, with only three long communal tables, plus one more on their back patio, you should still try to go with a group so you can order family-style. They have great vegetarian options like the Molote Tikki, tender dumplings made of beans and sweet plantains with a sweet and spicy sauce, and the Sabudana Vada, which are fried tapioca and potato balls with an incredible herb chutney. Definitely save some room for the refreshing Falooda, homemade sorbet with crispy rice noodles, jam, and condensed milk on top, for dessert.
