The Place: Que Bo: The Rock Star of Mexican Chocolatiers
The Experience: Que Bo has become almost iconic in recent times as a representative of all-Mexican chocolate in a modern Mexican style. Any Mexico Food Guide on chocolatiers in Mexico City needs to include Que Bo’s two locations, in Polanco and the Centro Histórico respectively.
Que Bo’s star is Chef José Ramón Castillo whose concept is straightforward, use as many Mexican chocolate ingredients as possible, revive ancient Mexican chocolate traditions in the form of wonderful chocolate beverages and in the end when flavoring chocolates push strong Mexican flavors and ingredients.
The execution and presentation of the chocolates is anything but straightforward and simple. Rather all of the chocolates are loaded with detail, brilliant coloring and rich Mexican flavors that take time and effort to plan and prepare.
If you want an all Mexican chocolate experience with a real modern kick head to Que Bo to help foment memories of your romantic Saint Valentine’s Day!
Locations: Calle Julio Verne 104, between Masaryk and Virgilio, Colonia Polanco, DF.
Isábel la Católica 30, between Francisco I. Madero and 16 de septiembre, Colonia Centro Histórico, DF.
Hip Centro Location
All of the chocolates with Mexican fruit flavors are wonderful as is the tascalate drink, an indigenous beverage served mainly in the Southeast of Mexico where cacao is produced, which is considered to be a natural aphrodisiac.
Tips: If you are looking for a more hipster vibe in a more lively part of town Gringo G recommends the Centro location. If you are looking for a more spacious and laid back experience Gringo G recommends the Polanco location.
Tascalate an aphrodisiac drink!
