Enrique Olvera

His restaurant 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. In 2012, Pujol was ranked as the 36th best place to eat in the world in the Pellegrino list.

Enrique takes Mexican cuisine tradition and turns it on its head to create something new and innovative. He’s 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 you get to Mexico City, you'll have to just enjoy this episode.
