After several years of providing the most authentic Mexican food, great margaritas and ambience, we want to share with you some of the experiences we’ve gathered since 2004. When we took the challenge of bringing to Melbourne the most authentic Mexican food we thought it was going to be fun…And guess what… It has been a real adventure with plenty of additional rewards that, quite honestly, we didn’t expect.
We have always thought that the first way to get up close and personal with another culture is through their food, so we knew that our responsibility in portraying an authentic Mexican Restaurant was going to be far greater than just cooking.
At the same time, Mexican culture is so huge and is divided in so many regions, ideas and eras, that, trying to synthesize everything into a single space would be impossible. So our approach to give the restaurant its authenticity (besides the food of course) was at the end, quite simple. We focused in one element that is common to all Mexico: It’s people and their famous bubbly and warm personality.
Most details that decorate the restaurant were meaningful to somebody in a certain point in time. Other elements, show our appreciation to the great, ancient cultures we are still product of the Aztecs, Mayas. Huicholes, Otomies, Tarahumaras.
And there are even some pieces that honour our most popular traditions and contemporary art.
