Mexican cuisine is known for the use of spices, for the intense and often spicy flavour of the dishes, for the infinite variety of colours, textures, and flavours, mainly due to the use of the most diverse vegetables. Within the country, Mexican cuisine changes from region to region due to environmental and ethnic differences, but also due to Hispanic influence to a greater or lesser degree.

For this Mexican Chef’s Table edition, we will have a very traditional menu crafted in order to show our guests some of the most traditional flavours in Mexico from different regions and styles.

We will begin the journey with a Tlalpeño Soup, originally from Tlalpan town in Mexico City, that will bring you a warm taste of tomato, rice, chicken broth, avocado, and chipotle chilli.

Next, we will enjoy the real Baja California or Ensenada Fish Tacos, characteristic because of their different textures and flavours inside two soft tortillas.

The great star of the night will be the Green Mole, a nice thick sauce with a lot of prehispanic history inside, several cities in Mexico claim its origin. The main ingredients of this sauce are pumpkin seeds, peanuts, sesame some herbs, and green tomatoes, the pork meat gives it the best platform to introduce you to this main dish, it is traditionally accompanied with black beans or as called in Mexico “frijoles charros”.

To finalize with a high note this experience, you will taste the Jericalla: a Mexican flan flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla originally from Jalisco, México.
