Casa Portuguesa houses a kitchen full of saudades,or “longings” in Portuguese. For over 20 years, they’ve been serving Polanco residents classic Lusitanian and European cuisine with Mexican touches. You’ll find this culinary fusion in their “huevos macuarrines” with chorizo, panela, toreado chiles, and charro beans, or in the Mediterranean frittata made from eggs, tomato confit, and mozzarella cheese. On the sweeter side, their Da Silva brand artisan bakery is top quality.

Sonia’s menu takes us back to the flavors of family meals and the recipes of our grandmothers. Some of the most outstanding dishes are the chilaquiles bathed in black mole and the plantain enmoladas with quesillo. If you want a refreshing non-alcoholic drink, we recommend the mocktail of natural lychee pulp, mint and lime juice.

How about painting a picture whilst savoring a blueberry mimosa and French toast? Edén Shopping-Bistró, a hidden gem in Roma, offers just this kind of gastronomic and artistic experience. As well as a restaurant, there is an art gallery, fashion bazaar, and even a stage for emerging musicians. Their specialty is the montadito (a Spanish-style mini sandwich) and our favorite is the American, which includes bacon, egg, mozzarella, and creamy cilantro pesto.

Prominent chef Mónica Patiño offers two brunch options at her Roma bistro – the breakfast of the day or à la carte. If you opt for the set menu, you can start with a Buna chocolate made from halva and macadamia nuts and wash it down with a chai latte. For the main dish, we suggest the egg casserole with tomato sauce, jocoque, pita bread, and Kalamata olives.
