Around the World Dinners at Streetfood Take on Mexico

0

Streetfood’s beloved Around the World series is once again on the schedule this spring. This time, the owners set out to take diners to three separate regions of Mexico. Chef and owner Marcos Hernandez hails from Mexico and has always shined when bringing some Mexican classics to the menu. This time he is taking us on a three part tour of his home country and offering a glimpse into how unique and varied the food culture there really is.

At the first dinner May 2, diners will be treated to Hernandez’s home, the city of Leon. These dishes will represent some of the food he grew up eating, including his mother’s posole recipe. “The posole was at every family event we had,” he said. It was also the first dish he made for now-wife Amelia. The enchiladas on the menu are not what is typically expected. They are stuffed with potatoes and cheese and was what Marcos said all the workers in his region came home to after a long day working in the mines.

Two weeks later on May 2, diners will be treated to Marcos’ home state of Leon. These dishes will represent some of the food he grew up eating, including his mother’s posole recipe. “The posole was at every family event we had,” he said. It was also the first dish he made for now-wife Amelia. The enchiladas on the menu are not what is typically expected.

Two weeks later the state of Veracruz will be highlighted May 16, featuring a region known for seafood. Co-owner Amelia Hatchard said the area has a heavy Spanish and afro-Cuban influence, demonstrated in the cuisine. “They are very fun flavors to play with.”

And finally, on May 30, the menu highlights Oaxaca, known for mole. Each dish this evening, including dessert, will illustrate how varied mole can be. “We are serving four of the traditional seven moles,” Amelia said.

This mole is made with dried fruit and is one of the rare moles that doesn’t include chocolate.
