Restaurante Natural Saks Restaurant Review

: In 1985, before healthy eating was even vaguely fashionable in Mexico City, Saks, which aims to serve fresh food, opened its doors. There are now a number of branches, with a loyal following of señoras who are watching their waistlines, or at least trying to convince themselves that they are. (While the food here may be healthy, it is not precisely light, and far from vegetarian---you will find chicken, fish and even beef on the menu.) Loyal customers like the house-baked sweet rolls and corn bread that are served with hearty breakfasts, along with fresh juices, and a multitude of Mexican egg preparations. Among the best are huevos divorciados---sunnyside-up “divorced” eggs, so called because one is served bathed in green chile sauce and the other in red. At lunch and dinner, main dishes include tasty chicken curry, salmon in butter sauce, linguine diávolo (with shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce) and hojaldre vegetariano (vegetables and cheese baked in puff pastry). The decoration is a bit on the Gothic side, with stone floors and heavy wooden tables, glazed windows with cross-hatched metal, dim lights and new paintings patterned in a medieval style.
