This SMA Mexican fine dining restaurant by Chef Matteo Salas, continues earning awards; most recently from Food and Travel Mexico at their Readers Awards where Chef Matteo Salas took Best Chef and Jacinto 1930 won the award for the Best New Restaurant. Aperi, one of Chef Salas’s other properties, also recently received the Grand Luxury Award from the Association of International Hospitality.
We had a simple and flavorful comida: Soup, Gordita and Dessert; the kind of meal that many people are looking for on a cool December day in SMA. I’ve come to think of Jacinto 1930 as an everyday option instead of one that you eat at just on special occasions. The food, presentation and flavors are what you’ve come to expect from Chef Salas. I also love the atmosphere; glassed in elegance that’s perfect for people watching.
Dry Noodle Soup with chipotle, avocado, cream and cheese $105 pesos
We loved the flavor of this broth. The spice was absorbed by the delicate noodles. Perfectly portioned.
Chicharrón Gorditas $112 pesos
We can’t get off ordering this dish, which is one of the most popular things on the menu. The gorditas are bite sized, crispy and the flavor is amazing. It’s one of our favorite dishes in San Miguel. Chef Sofia Moreno made the accompanying salsa the day we had lunch and the flavors were magical.
Frozen and smoked strawberries, ice powder of ranch cream, lemon sorbet, fresh cheese and vanilla for just $125 pesos.
There are a wonderful variety of textures in this dish. Flawless combination of ingredients to top off this comida.
