Japanese Hipster Cuisine

The Place: MOG

The Experience: MOG offers a modern no frills approach to a wide-variety of Japanese and Asian cuisine. The setting is distinctly hipster as is the appearance of much of the wait-staff. Don’t let this hipster ambiance turn you off if it is not your thing; because the food is exceptional.

MOG’s concept is simple… transform a wide variety of fresh, high quality ingredients into an amazingly high variety of dishes from soups (Vietnamese Pho, Japanese Udon and more) to rice dishes to high grade sashimi … plus the hipsterish wait-staff is really quite professional and efficient.

MOG is about the only place in Mexico where you can get very, very fresh (almost slow food) Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and other regional Asian cuisines in one place … all executed at a high level.

If you are digging Asian food and you are around the Roma Norte give this a try!

The Location: Álvaro Obregón 40, between Mérida y and Frontera, Colonia Roma Norte, DF (a few doors down from the famed Bisquets de Obregón).

The Specials: Too hard to specify one in particular taking into account the wide variety on offer … Gringo G really likes the soups, the rice dish creations with sashimi as well as most of the rolls.

Tips: Please be ready for a long wait as MOG does not accept reservations and is very popular (or you can try and get there during non-peak hours). 

Also make sure to check out the seasonal menu on the first page of the MOG menu … these dishes are generally fantastic!
