Azafran restaurant


By Tangi Davis

Today I am reviewing Azafran restaurant on Olas Altas, in the heart of zona romántica near the beach.  It is a special restaurant week menu, 3 courses for $399 pesos.

My friend ordered a mixed salad with beets, goat cheese, candied nuts with a raspberry dressing.  It was fresh and plentiful.

Interesting use of fennel and pea sprouts as well as pepitos and sunflower seeds.  I had an avocado mango tartar with deliciously seared shrimp and light garnish of black olives.

Main course was roast salmon with saffron glaze served over a seafood foam and garnished with toasted almonds.

It was light and moist!  I had braised short ribs which were not the best (not a regular menu item so I have to cut the chef a break).

It was served with vanilla glazed baby carrots and zucchini.

Dessert was apple beignets served with sweet vanilla ice cream, assorted fruits and fresh mint.

I will be going back to sample their regul.
