Fodor's Expert Review Kinta
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Kinta delivers sophisticated interpretations of classic Mexican fare in an open kitchen. The menu is updated seasonally, but favorites dishes include savory black bean soup, pork in a smoky pasilla chile sauce, and filet mignon with huitlaoche (a corn truffle) and cheese. It's easy to overlook the entrance to this upscale spot (look for a bright orange facade on the west side of the street); however, once you've discovered the blissfully air-conditioned dining room, romantic outdoor garden, and impressive menu, you'll likely return. Hand-crushed mojitos and fruity sangria add a refreshing lilt, and the budín de la abuelita (bread pudding with Mexican chocolate and caramel sauce) is a fitting end to a stellar meal.
