Every Thursday in Mexico City a burgeoning revolution in food is happening. Si, a restaurant in Condesa where streets Mazatlan and Veracruz cross, hosts a RAW FOOD evening. Claudio Hall is the Chef. Trained at the Living Light Institute and having lived a number of years in New York, he returned back to his roots and to spread the word about raw food.
I went along to sample the Thai evening. Four courses are served and a glass of wine offered (I don’t drink). Coconut soup. Spring Rolls (rice paper not raw). Pad Thai, with sprouts for ‘noodle’s (I personally prefer kelp noodles but I doubt they are available in Mexico yet) and soaked crushed cashews. For dessert a mango infused chia seed ‘tapioca de chia’.
The coconut soup was absolutely delicious. Peppered with tiny diced bell peppers. All dishes were beautifully presented. I hope I get chance to go back again and see what else he conjures up. His passion is evident. Check him out if you are in D.F.
