Millennium Seoul Hilton’s flagship restaurant, Café 395, is pleased to host a special promotion featuring Mexican cuisine from September 14th to the 20th. Special guest chef Daniel Gonzalez from Mexico will helm the kitchen during that time to bring you an authentic taste of Mexico’s finest foods, in addition to the regular bountiful offerings of Café 395’s buffet.
Chef Gonzalez currently is the co-owner of Maizajo, a tortilleria and mill that was born with a purpose to research and preserve Mexican corn. Working alongside with the farmers, Chef Gonzalez aims to learn as much about each and every type of Mexican corn to recognize the value of this agricultural heritage. Dedicated to honouring tradition and history, his previous experiences as chef include Fonda Mayora, a traditional Mexican restaurant that honors the ancient Mexican cooks known as “mayoras”, who follow traditional cooking practices that are still practiced in modern times. He has also worked as executive chef of La Gruta, a popular restaurant that served traditional food in an area surrounded by Aztec ruins and pre-Hispanic temples.
Chef Gonzalez will prepare many hot and cold appetizers and entrees as well as some scrumptious desserts. Some of the delicious offerings will include: green ceviche tostadas; scallops aguachile; duck tamales with black mole sauce; soft crabs with green mole; beef sweetbreads in morita pepper sauce; old-fashioned octopus stew, and much more.
Mexican cuisine is popular for its bold flavors, vibrant colors and variety of native spices and ingredients. While the cuisine has been popularized by morphed hybrids including Tex-Mex and Cal-Mex, Chef Gonzalez will introduce authentic Mexican traditional cuisine to Seoulites. This is a great opportunity to sample the foods of Mexico without leaving the country!
