Sashimi de Sandia is grilled watermelon sticks with goat cheese balls covered with black sesame, fresh jalapeño and ponzu sauce. The dish offers a blend of sweetness, creaminess, savouriness, nuttiness, tanginess, and spiciness with smoky, caramelised, nutty, floral, and buttery aromas.
Aguachile Verde is a traditional Mexican cuisine consisting of fresh shrimp marinated in salsa verde, a mix of tomatillo, lime juice, cilantro, garlic and serrano peppers. The salsa verde is prepared by blending the ingredients, creating tangy and spicy flavours that perfectly complement the shrimp's fresh taste. The shrimp is then served with thin slices of cucumber and red onion, which add a refreshing crunch to the dish.
Panuchos de Cochinita Pibil is a traditional Mexican dish, originated in the Yucatan Peninsula. This dish consists of small, thick tortilla disks that are fried until crispy, then topped with a generous amount of tender pulled pork that has been marinated in a flavorful blend of spices and citrus juices and savoury frijoles refritos and served with plantain.
Gringa al Pastor is a traditional Mexican dish that consists of a large, warm tortilla filled with juicy, marinated pork that has been slow-roasted on a spit, along with sweet and tangy chunks of fresh pineapple, a spicy and flavorful salsa, and a generous helping of melted cheese. This mouth-watering combination of savoury and sweet flavours is a feast for the senses.
Nachos Machos is a delicious Tex-Mex dish that is perfect for any occasion. This dish typically consists of crispy tortilla chips, creamy and flavourful guacamole made from avocados, house-made chorizo for a bit of spice, melted cheese for added richness, and tangy sour cream to balance the flavours. Combining all these ingredients is a true delight for the taste buds.
Quesa-Birria Tacos is a mouth-watering Mexican delicacy, originated in Tijuana, Mexico, and is made with flavourful birria-style beef that has been slow-cooked for hours, resulting in a tender and juicy texture. The beef is then folded into a tortilla with melted cheese and grilled to perfection, giving the dish a crispy exterior and a gooey, cheesy interior. The tacos are served with a cup of rich and flavorful broth made from the same beef stock, which can be used for dipping and adding extra flavour to the tacos.
Chiles Rellenos is a delicious Mexican dish consisting of roasted green peppers stuffed with cheese, dipped in egg batter, and then deep-fried to perfection. The result is a crispy exterior that gives way to a soft, melted cheese filling. The dish is served with a tomato-based sauce flavoured with chipotle peppers and other spices, giving it a slightly smoky and tangy taste.
Tres Leches cake is a popular dessert from Latin America. It is made by soaking sponge cake in a mixture of three different types of milk - evaporated, condensed, and whole milk. This gives the cake its signature rich and creamy texture that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. The cake is usually topped with whipped cream or fresh fruit. In this particular recipe, the chef has decided to use a juicy peach to give the cake a burst of stone fruity flavour.
