Dinner

The dinner menu offers a great selection of innovative Mexican dishes brimming with flavors that take your palate on a delicious journey through different regions of Mexico. There are six categories to choose from. Here we guide you along to our most popular favorites in each category.

Appetizers

To start we recommend the Mexican Delight with grilled zucchini, spicy mushrooms, fried cheese, paddle cactus, and peanut dip. This dish features Mexican ingredients with the perfect combination of smoked and spicy aromas and flavors. Another popular appetizer is our Scallops Tiradito with mango, citrus, leek, mixed spices, and avocado mousse. Enjoy a new culinary trend with the softness and full flavor of fresh scallops.

Signature Soups

Corn is a staple ingredient of Mexico dating back to at least 9,000 years ago. While in Mexico, you must try the Roasted Cream of Corn soup with goat cheese ravioli, huitlacoche, and epazote. The soup is made from Creole corn that the natives grind in a mill and thicken into a sort of dough and it is creamy and delicious. Another must try soup is the Tortilla Soup, also widely popular in Mexico. This recipe is originally from the state of Tlaxcala, which means “Land of Maize”. It is a very heartwarming dish featuring guajillo pepper, sour cream, panela cheese, avocado, and coriander.

Pre-Hispanic Traditions

Travel back in history and be amazed by the flavors of two incredible Pre-Hispanic dishes. Try the Tuna Ceviche with squash seed puree, avocado, marinated cucumber, serrano pepper, and hibiscus powder all served on a tostada where all the flavors blend beautifully together. Another dish we highly recommend are the Fried Squash Blossoms filled with Oaxaca cheese and wrapped in handmade tortillas with a tomato sauce. The dish seems like a taco, yet in the mouth it transforms into a quesadilla. You must try it!

Market Food

This section of the menu allows you to sample all the best Mexican street food in an upscale environment. Our top picks in this section are the Baja Fish Tacos prepared Baja style with tempura fish, pickled cabbage, and chipotle mayonnaise or the Tacos al Pastor served with onion, coriander, lime, and sauce. These are the most popular style of tacos in Mexico and originate from the city of Puebla.

Grandmother´s Traditions

No Mexican-themed menu would be complete without including Grandmother´s Traditions. If you want to try a comforting dish as only a grandmother could prepare, try the Pork and Tomatillo Stew, which will make you feel like you are wrapped in a warm hug. This type of stew comes from Michoacán state and is traditionally cooked in a copper pot. The pork is slow cooked in its own lard and juices and a combination of spices are added for sensational flavor. Fish lovers will enjoy the Fish Fillet featuring fresh catch of the day prepared with Zarandeada sauce. This dish is typical in the Pacific region of Mexico, originally made using the whole fish and cooked on a charcoal grill.

Specialties

Now we come to the last section of our dinner Menu, specialties. One of our most popular dishes is the Duck Crackling and Mole with mole prepared with 50 different ingredients and served with plantain tortillas. The Pork Shank Pibil is a Mayan method of cooking in a special oven called Pib in the Mayan language. This dish is served with plantain puree and pickled onion.
