Four Dishes at MUNDO – All Bueno
Mundo seems to be happening at lunch. Dinner looked reasonably busy too, and we’re guessing management is pleased with its first month of operation (they need to fix the wobbly tables, however).
The lunch pictured above: poblano green chile corn soup (with a nice hint of cumin), pork carnitas, chopped salad (containing enough ingredients to make Todd English blush, but somehow it works) and chipotle-glazed shrimp in a red chile brandy sauce, was measurably more interesting than our previous dinner — beautifully presented and full of both subtle and strong Southwestern flavors.
All of this bodes well for downtown’s newest addition. It’s obvious that lots of folks are finding their way to this obscure location for a first bite. Whether they return again will be the determining factor.
Btw: Mundo has a groovy website...that makes us want to hop the first jet to Playa del Carmen.
