First things first ...
Closed December 25th until Friday, January 6th.
The annual X-Mas Eve Dinner is booked.
All kinds of goodies coming in from around the globe ... one of the best this week, wild Kaffir lime leaves from Thailand that will be used in a couple of dishes this weekend. I have been waiting for over a month for these leaves and they are perfect for curries.
Speaking of curries .. Friday night, fresh green curry chicken with these leaves and a little tweek on a cafe favorite .. Norwegian salmon with pistachio and cashew crust with herbs. Finishing the line up, a savory chuleta with umami seasoning.
Saturday night, again with the Kaffir leaves with a citrus shrimp dish with wild Mexican shrimp. A dish with the best sauce from one of my favorite cafe's in Oaxaca, tortellini with Bolognese Bianco with Pecorino Romano and herbs. A little fusion with chicken breast opened and layered with Prosciutto cheese and black garlic.
Sunday night, more fusion with pasta and wild shrimp with Guatemalan spice and another Guatemalan inspired dish with chicken with Antigua spice grilled in banana leaf. Last, but, not least ... pork tenderloin long steaks seasoned, grilled and hit with peach & chili sauce.
