New Castle, Delaware

Tori Tori is located in the upscale district of Polanco and the clientele is similarly upper-class. Interestingly enough, there weren't too many people at 9pm but when we left at closer to 10:30pm, the place was filling up.The sushi rolls are well-made, creative and do not contain cream cheese (quite a rarity in Mexico). The Spicy Tuna roll was excellent with fresh tuna and just enough spiciness, and the Rollo Grande was enough to be a meal for one person. The seafood croquettes(a Japanese classic) were excellent, although on the small side.The nigiri was spectacular and made just like it is in Japan. Not too much rice, a little wasabi and a strip of seaweed to wrap it all together.The waiters were polite (although not particularly attentive), and the restaurant is well-lit with modern decor.If you want good Japanese food in Mexico City without sky-high prices, this is a place to go.Dinner for two, including non-alcoholic drinks and tip(10% is standard in Mexico) came out to be 700 pesos with food to bring home.
