Enrique is not afraid to mix ants with mayonnaise and coffee and put it all on ears of baby corn. The 14-course tasting menu at his restaurant, Pujol, is considered by many to be the finest in Mexico.
For the first episode of Munchies shot in Mexico we hung out with a rock star of the Mexican restaurant scene, Enrique Olvera. His restaurant, Pujol, located in the fancy Mexico City neighborhood of Polanco, is considered by many to be the best restaurant in the country, and in 2012 it was ranked the 36th best place to eat in the world in the Pellegrino list.
Enrique is not afraid to mix ants with mayonnaise and coffee and put it all on ears of baby corn. His 14-course tasting menu will blow your mind. But until the next time you get to Mexico City, you'll just have to enjoy this episode.
