Located in Kaly Malitzin in Coyaocan, Mexico City, the restaurant is a nicely decorated cantina that is also famous for the the fact that one of its owners is celebrated Mexican movie star Diego Luna (from the film “Y Tu Mama Tambien”).
Entering the site, you’ll be pleased to see a mix of minimalist decorations infused with a laid-back and country style. The walls are specked with crates where special pieces are put on display. There are scribbles on the walls, as well, which makes it even more interesting.
The tables of the restaurant are long and wooden and the chairs are the same, which actually brings its old school and traditional feel. The lights are decorated with tin buckets, which I think is clever and ingenous. This is just like being on the back of the kitchen of a palace or a colonial house. Although many of the elements in the design are actually current and modern. In fact, the restaurant has actually won an international design competition
As for the food, La Bipolar delivers classic Mexican food fare, but adds its own twist to it. Don’t forget to try the tofu burritos, which you don’t usually find at other Mexican restaurants. Or you can also have the Marlin Tostaditas, which is utterly mouthwatering and flavorful.
With an ambiance this cool, food choices that’s filling and satisfying, plus celebrity diners who frequent the place, La Bipolar is one of Mexico City’s latest place to be.
