At the time of this writing, I had not dined at mid-day (it closes at 6), but oh the breakfast. Memorable. For less than $18 including tip, and being treated like royalty by staff (great service in other words), I enjoyed artisanal bread, a capirotada,...More

. When you eat at Amaranta surely you will rediscover some forgotten flavors and you may think "why pay for something that I could get everywhere else?" The simple reason is the full experience that you go into that makes you feel RESTORED

Set in a very strangely empty part of the city, Amaranta threads a fine line between accessibility and fine dining. It is carefully decorated without being pretentious; the work in the kitchen can be seen by the customer without making the (small) place noisy; the...More

Went to Toluca to meet some customers, for a lunch meeting. And I have to confess that this was the best part of the whole trip. I really thought that it would be, like, 'yet-another-lunch-speak-bye' 1h30 meeting, but not this one. Amaranta caused me a...More
