A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Questa è una bella storia. Siamo a San Salvario, uno dei quartieri più vivaci e multietnici, anche per la proposta culinaria, di Torino. In questi locali per decenni ha operato una ristorante mito come La Pace, ma da un anno e mezzo è diventato El Beso, Cantina Mexicana. L’ha aperto Andrea Angiono, e qui parte la storia. Andrea, con la moglie messicana Maria Antonietta, apre nel 2010 El Beso, a Città del Messico. Tutto funziona ma la nostalgia del paese d’origine si fa sempre più forte e allora Andrea convince la moglie ad aprire il loro secondo El Beso a Torino, con l’intento di proporre, finalmente, la vera cucina messicana di eccellenza (no Tex Mex… ovviamente, caro Trump il muro lo mettiamo noi). Il locale è rimasto intatto… molto bello, coi i mattoni in bella vista, i tavoli ben distanziati (non apparecchiano più di 50 coperti… ma potrebbero starcene il doppio). Il resto lo fa la mano sapiente di Gerry, cuoco messicano verace.

Ed ecco qualche piatto della tradizione gourmet messicana, ma io mi auguro che, vista la liberalizzazione, prima o poi servano le cavallette fritte, le ho assaggiate qualche anno fa in Messico e vi assicuro che sono una vera delizia, meglio dei nostro gamberetti. E Andrea è d’accordo. Passiamo a qualche piatto dei tanti proposti. Guacamole fatto a mano (pureé di avocado con pomodoro, cipolla, coriandolo, lime e triangolino di mais), Tostadas del Mar (tre modi di degustare il pesce alla messicana: Ceviche, Pulpo enamorado e Aguachile, cioè gamberi marinati). E poi qualche Tacos de la tradiciòn, come la Cochinita Pibil (antica ricetta Maya: costine di maiale marinate al achiote, spezie messicane, cotte al cartoccio di foglie di banano). E ancora il Polpo Yucateco con salsa ai 7 peperoncini e molto altro ancora… Come bevande trovate cocktails, chupito, tequila, mezcal ma anche qualche buon vino messicano (da vitigni internazionali) della cantina L.A. Cetto della Baja California. Ma se ci sono le cavallette… non fate i timidi… date retta a me.

    I was surprised to find this restaurant in Turin. Very nice food and service. It was my second time in the restaurant; the foods has always been good. The first time I sat outside in the summer, the atmosphere was lively and nice. The second time I sat inside in October - the atmosphere felt a little empty and cold. Other than that, lived the restaurant. Will be going back.

    Excellent Mexican food, very tasty and good cocktails. Good and chill atmosphere, bit expensive but the quality is really high and it's a good value for a nice evening discovering a bite of chilly Mexico

    El Beso is a top level mexican restaurant, much different from the mixican restaurant you usually taste around.

    By far the BEST Mexican food in Torino and some of the best I've ever had. This isn't Texmex: large burritos covered in cheese, enchiladas smothered in sauce (which I also love). This is beautiful, AUTHENTIC ingredients and flavors. My only complaint is that the servings are small and we have to order multiple main dishes. I would recommend starting with the handmade guacamole for primo, the degustation of tacos for secondo followed by the churros for dolci, but the shrimp tacos (Veracruz) are phenomenal as well. See? You have to get multiple main courses! Even the vegetarian tacos are incredibly tasty.

    Simply the best, most authentic and gourmet Mexican restaurant in town! The food was extra original and the taste was complex and particularly pleasant in flavor, like nothing I have ever had before. Great location and extremely nice staff too! Amazing drinks as well. 10/10

    As a mexican I could not agree more and say that this is the best place to get authentic mexican food. The staff was very welcoming and heartwarming, which, in addition to the food, it made it feel like home. It may feel a bit pricey though, however, the quality of the ingredients is superb, so you do get what you pay for.
