Toks Restaurant

So you were wondering what that fancy building next to Office Depot in Altabrisa was going to be? A casino perhaps? No, it is a new restaurant of the DF variety and the Critic had a chance to visit the place the other day and see what all the Tok was about.

Bad pun.

Toks, whose logo comes with a clover leaf which clears everything up regarding the origin of this ridiculous sounding name (doesn’t it?) is like an upscale Vips; a Mexico City kinda place with overheight ceilings and really fancy finishes throughout. There’re carpets and polished stone floors and wood and God knows what else, as well as a menu that could have been written by Tolstoy – this thing is huge and comes in at about 7 pounds, without the ‘specials’ section featuring hot coffees and teas.

But it is comfortable and the staff is very friendly.

The Critic had some mole enchiladas which were just fine and the Better Half had some sort of giant quesadilla thing which made an impressive entrance. Hopefully this review will not suffer the same formatting problems as the previous post and some photos can be added shortly.

Toks is a great place to go if you have nothing better to do and feel like having Vips food in fancy surroundings which might convince a less sophisticated version of yourself that you are experiencing fine dining.

  1. William, when y eat all those foods, are y check your bood test every 6 month? Y do exercise everyday? I just wonder myself. Walter, when he is with me totally stirick organic diet but who knows what the he’ll he is eating over there I am not there. I told him you better have six pack your belly but he is out there having a good time. He is not lying , he is not telling me. So as long as he is happy I don’t care. It is his health. So enjoy but check up at least 6 month. Love suk, simple sugar is really bad for diabetic, HTN, mexcan diet is really really bad diet. Rest. Cooking is not good one bc y know where is come from, what are they put in it. But enjoy, as long as your all blood number is ok. Love suk

  2. Hi Suk! Thanks for caring enough to ask. I haven’t checked my blood sugar in years! So it must be fine, no? 🙂 I have started the year eating in restaurants a lot, but mostly we eat at home and fairly healthy. Not to worry. I should be around for at least another year or so.

  3. Still y need to do whole bood test, physical exam once a year. Listen to me. It is your health, better catch early than later. Your wife also. Do not mad at me. I know it is not my business, sorry bc I care about my friends. If I did cross your line, I will not do that. Love suk

  4. Oh good. I was hoping you would review Toks — I pass by frequently, and was in awe at the lightning speed with which the whole thing was built and finished. I read somewhere (maybe the Diario), that it is part of a chain, and your review confirms my suspicions about its culinary offerings. You didn’t mention price range, but, I guess it’s one of those “if you have to ask”… things.
    The parking lot has been PACKED every time I’ve passed, including the morning, by which I conclude that they serve breakfast, as well.

  5. MCM: Really, it’s no big deal if you never eat here. Better food can be had at the Viejo Molino just before Toks. Have you tried La Tasca, just opened near there?

  6. I haven’t tried La Tasca (well, in fact I almost never eat in restaurants!), but our cleaning lady’s husband is trying to get a job in the kitchen (which may or, more likely, may not be a recommendation). La Tasca just made a VERY RAPID transition from a sala de fiestas to a restaurant — I did notice cars in the parking lot, which I guess is a good sign.
    El Viejo Molino I have in fact tried — it’s ok, some things better than others. I await the definitive review….

  7. HEEEEYYYYY Amigo, si dices que lo que no te gusta de MEXICO… es de que hay gente Ustupida… porque no te regresas a tu pais de primer mundo. con gente de primer mundo. yo vivien tu pais… y por eso no hablo cosas feas que algun vi por alla…
