We are all about fun, fresh food and margaritas ( and maybe a few beers ) and most importantly respect for this great cuisine. The best Mexican cuisine is all about comfort food and don’t let anyone tell you differently. The art and fun of mixing the guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo into a fresh fajita is next to none.
Mexican cuisine began about 9,000 years ago, when agricultural communities such as the Maya formed, domesticating maize, creating the standard process of corn nixtamalization, and establishing their foodways. Successive waves of other Mesoamerican groups brought with them their own cooking methods. These included the Olmec, Teotihuacanos, Toltec, Huastec, Zapotec, Mixtec, Otomi, Purépecha, Totonac, Mazatec, and Mazahua.
The Mexica establishment of the Aztec Empire created a multi-ethnic society where many different foodways became infused. The staples are native foods, such as corn (maize), beans, squash, amaranth, chia, avocados, tomatoes, tomatillos, cacao, vanilla, agave, turkey, spirulina, sweet potato, cactus, and chilli pepper.
And for us, if that means importing fresh ingredients straight from Mexico, we will do that !!
