Big Tool says This was one of the best restaurants we've tried of the DDD venues, But Cempazuchi isn't a diner, drive-in or a dive. In fact, it looks exactly like you expect a very good Mexican restaurant in a trendy, upper-scale urban neighborhood to look like, both inside and out.
We got there on a weekday just as they opened for lunch, so there were no problems with a wait. I knew the main meal was going to be a treat as soon as I tried the peanut-cinnamon salsa that came with the chips (along with a more conventional red, garlicky-peppery salsa). The taste of the peanut was really unexpected, very much like pumpkin. For lunch I had suiza enchiladas with potato, mushroom, zucchini and a creamy poblano sauce and my wife had steak tacos. We thought everything tasted great and we both saw a lot of menu items that we'd like to try on repeat visits.
