This Week Only: Taste Signature Dishes Prepared By A Mexican Chef

How often do you get to enjoy food that has the seal of approval from the Embassy Of Mexico? The answer is perhaps once a year. Back for its fourth consecutive year, Flavours Of Mexico is a week-long event where KL-ites can enjoy true blue Mexican cuisine, as part of the cultural programme of the Embassy of Mexico.

This year, they’ve collaborated with The Ritz Carlton KL, La Boca Latino Bar, Fresca Mexican Kitchen & Bar, Casa Latina, El Maiz Restaurant, YTL International College of Hotel and Management and Taylor’s University.

If this sounds uber grand, it’s because it is. The launch of the event was graced by Professor Datuk Chef Wan and we even got a candid shot of the famous chef himself!

Psst, all of the set menus in the restaurants will include the classic tequila drink: the Margharita.


On top of that, the participating restaurants will also be distributing a FREE recipe book edited by the Embassy of Mexico. In it, you’ll find 20 different recipes of the most traditional Mexican dishes which can be prepared with ingredients which are readily found in Malaysia.
