This beautiful building which is presently the site of Los Girasoles, was the exercise room of the San Andres Hospital some time ago. The original restaurant concept involved some of Mexico's top chefs including Martha Ortiz, Mónica Patiño and Patricia Quintana who,although no longer involved with the running of the place, donated recipies and ideas for its founding. The place is run by reknown Mexican food critics. The menu at Los Girasoles focuses on historical pre-Columbian cuisine, featuring soups, salads, fish, poultry and meat dishes. Some of the things found here cannot be obtained anywhere else. Some of the highlights include Tamarind "Mole" with turkey, and for those wanting to try something more riske Los Girasoles also specialises on the cooking of chapulines, traditional way of cooking certain type of grasshopers, in avicado sauce. Their hand made tortillas and huge variety of salsas will have your mouth watering!
