When you hear the words Mexican food, people often think of tacos, burritos, and street food, but Mexican cuisine is far more varied and nuanced than most people’s perceptions. Mexican cuisine is bold and fun, and who better than acclaimed Mexican chef Federico Lopez to take diners on a flavourful tour of this colourful cuisine.
Chef Lopez’s interpretation of Mexican gastronomy combines the traditional Mayan flavors of the Yucatán Peninsula with a contemporary approach, representing an authentic taste of Mexico that revolves around a selection of ceviche’s, tostadas, and tamales.
From 16-21 September in Sayad, experience Mexican cuisine like never before with a special à la carte menu prepared by chef Federico Lopez, owner of Taller Gourmet. His tantalising dishes will include black recaudo tuna tostada ceviche and squash carpaccio, alongside his signature Tik-in-xic snapper with Mayan salsa, and a sweet Tabascan chocolate, cinnamon and spiced mousse to finish.
The chef’s visit coincides with Mexican National Day on 19 September so book your place now for the fiesta of the year at Emirates Palace.
