Today I had lunch at Pitahaya Restaurante/Jugueria & Tes, located at Calle Regina 58-F, near the corner of 5 de Febrero. The proprietor/chef, Inés Monterrubio, serves some of the most creative cuisine I have eaten in Mexico City.

I had the Ensalada Mare, which featured large shrimp cooked in a parsley sauce, tomatoes, and avocado over a bed of mixed lettuces, which was covered with very thin slices of cucumber. The dressing was a cumin vinaigrette (65 pesos). For dessert, I had a tasty mamey mousse (40 pesos).

Other representative items on the menu are:
Molletes Gitanos -- serrano ham over tomatoes sprinkled with olive oil (65 pesos).
Fettuccini with a acuyo (hoja santa) pesto (65 pesos).
Tuna a la plancha ($85 pesos).
Tiramisú (50 pesos

Pitahaya also serves seasonal juices and various teas.

Srta. Monterrubio opened Pitahaya six months ago. It is a welcome addition the Mexico City casual dining scene.
