Its name comes from the nahuatl words “azcatl”, that means “ant, and “molli”, that means “stew”. We are a familiar restaurant with fresh regional ingredients. We follow the year seasons to offer you the best taste in every dish.

In December 2007, two guys that came back from being immigrants in the United States, take the decision to invest their savings to open a food business, and decided to name it Azcatlmolli, whose cooking was gaining recognition, taking them from a small place in the city center to a restaurant that is distinguished for its colonial architecture and great flavor.
