At 7,300 ft. elevation, surrounded by mountains and almost dead center in the heart of Mexico, sometimes you just want sushi. But sushi is only great if it comes from the best, and “the best” is synonymous with Nobu. Mexico City’s upscale neighborhood Polanco is where you will find this Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant.
Nobu resides in a 1953 colonial-style mansion converted into an informal restaurant space highlighting natural elements.
Inside is a bar, dining room and private dining area accentuated with wood, metal and light. The mangrove roots run from the entryway and gnarl their way across the ceiling.
The menu is extensive with hot and cold dishes, but we chose the Chef’s Choice Sushi Dinner with a Spicy Tuna Roll,
Mexican Style Roll and Tuna Avocado Roll,
and the house special, Chilean Special Roll. This one had a nice little spice kick to it!
The natural elements create a very relaxing environment along with low lighting and phenomenal dishes. Sit back and enjoy the freshest fish in the heart of Mexico!
