Colibrí's menu is full of classic Mexican cuisine with a smidgen of Spanish and French influences. Don't miss out on its famous fresh guacamole, prepared tableside and accompanied by soft handmade corn tortillas. For lunch, try the ensalada de jicama (jicama with avocado, cilantro, and citrus), the camarones en mole de tamarindo (sautéed prawns in a tamarind mole sauce), or the brocheta de filete (chile-marinated ﬁlet mignon tips). For dinner, the ceviche veracruzano (lime-marinated white ﬁsh) is popular, but the hamorro de cordero (marinated lamb shank wrapped in banana leaves and steamed to perfection) and the coliﬂor capeada (cauliﬂower with tomato sauce, cheese, roasted poblano strips, and mushrooms) are equally tasty.
Colibrí, which means hummingbird in Spanish, is bold and bright like a hummingbird emerging from the cocoon. The restaurant’s décor immediately brings to mind the festive atmosphere of Old Mexico. Don't miss this great deal on fantastic food. Get your Groupon!
