After so many years without having a Mexican restaurant in Altos de Chavón, Chilango Taquería opened its doors to offer the community a delicious display of Mexican culture and cuisine and we have to say, has not disappointed us! Mexico is a big country and its gastronomy reflects it. The range of flavors, techniques and ingredients is endless, which makes their gastronomy one of the most interesting in the world.
Chilango Taquería is a refreshing change to the Altos de Chavón scene, this restaurant transports us to another place with its decoration, atmosphere, food, music, and service. The restaurant has an outdoor terrace, perfect to avoid the sun and occasional rain, with cactus all around, hand painted painted signs with cacthy phrases, a colorful piñata, and wooden furniture with white and bright colored cushions that give it a lively touch that invites you to come in and join in on the fun.
Upon entering the restaurant, you are able to see the same range of bright colors, white, pink, yellow, orange, all around. Something that stands out are the beautiful murals painted by a group of students of Chavón School of Design under the direction of Raul Miyar, director of Fine Arts, Mayra Gonzalez de Gietz interior decorator and Thea van der Werf, wife of Andrés Pichardo Rosenberg president of Casa de Campo, who along with him and his family lived in Mexico for many years and with their experiences, help and excellent taste in art the students were able to reflect the joy of Mexican culture with its festivals and popular catrinas.
The attention to detail was such that the back of the uniforms of the collaborators you are able to see typical Mexican phrases, with their “translation” as a way to learn a little more about their culture and lingo.
Chilango Taquería offers us a cuisine with rich flavors and textures, in a relaxed gastronomic place where you can share new and spicy dishes. In its menu, there are traditional sauces such as guacamole, pico de gallo, sikil pak (traditional pumpkinseed and habanero dip), and toasted chiles as well as the traditional agua chiles, huitlacoche, cochinita, carnitas, shrimp, baja california and pastor tacos; not to mention its other dishes such as pulpo al pastor, braised ribs and chicken with mole pueblano prepared in the traditional way and with all its spices – a single night is not enough to try everything they have to offer! Also, you can not leave without toasting with their cocktails, tequilas, Mexican beers, or they’re popular lemon, strawberry, chinola, tamarindo Mexican margaritas.
Without a doubt this restaurant is exactly what Altos de Chavón needed! We hope you are able to visit them soon and make it into one of your favorites at the resort – the service, the atmosphere and the food are exceptional. We hear that they have many plans for the future so we can not wait to see what else they have prepared for us.
