Moira’s Bakehouse – More than comfort food

In the old neighborhood of San Angel, at the end of the left hall of Del Carmen Market  — that’s where I discovered my favorite bakehouse in Mexico City.

It was founded by Moiras, a Mexican chef also known as María José Le Molle. She used to live in Ireland, where she learned all the secrets of Irish and European bakery and desserts and brought them to Mexico.

Today, Moira’s Bakehouse is a small to-go shop with a considerable supply of single-serve desserts. The portion size lets you enjoy every bite without becoming cloying. My favorite dessert there is the pecan pie: it’s the perfect mix of honey and nuts. The scones are also great; they’re English biscuits that can be defined as the children of a cookie and a pancake. I like to buy one (or two) desserts and eating them in the park on the other side of the street. I go there whenever I feel sad or need a sugar rush. Actually, I like going there anytime.

The best of Moira’s is the quality of every ingredient involved during the baking process. Everything is supervised and tasted by the owner of the shop and you can taste it in every bite.
