Belmondo is sandwich paradise, for purists and innovators alike. You’ll find the gourmet version of the typical BLT, Reuben and grilled cheese options, but also more elaborate creations. Their sandwich of lechón (roasted pork), frijoles con veneno (refried beans in roasted pork essence) and onions with habanero chile. Or opt for a goat cheese, avocado, walnut pesto and watercress salad.
And then there’s the hipster part. Belmondo is famed around the local crowd because it is the place where the members of Radiohead decided to eat during a recent visit to Mexico City. Some days, specially in the late hours, it will get pretty crowded. So take your precautions.
