A MED-MEX MEDLEY
The menu at the new Ocaña D.F. Restaurant is fresh and experimental, as the chef, Martin Schanninger, is all about creating a new food experience. There are a number of mouthwatering dishes, such as the seabream ceviche with crispy squid, which is prepared using regional seafood, the more daring, but equally delicious, braised pork cheeks with Mexican chocolate sauce, and salpicon and chorizo tamales. If you’re after a drink, there are plenty of creative cocktails, which can be found at the Mezcal and Tequila bar. Ocaña D.F.’s stunning interior is thanks to two impressive artists—Humberto Spindola, who works with Mexican folk art known as ‘papel picado’, and French graffiti guru Gerard Zlotykamien. The venue’s bold, vibrant colours pay homage to the work of Mexican architect, Luis Barragán. With inspiring design, sensational food and excellent service, this new addition to the city’s food scene is the place to head this June.
