Inspired by Mexico, Prepared with Passion
With a fusion of quintessential Mexican flavors and cutting-edge techniques taking center stage, the inspiring menu at Blanca Blue is set to tantalize the taste buds. The concept of Blanca Blue’s Mexican Avant-Garde Cuisine, the creation of Chef Mario Castro and his team, was established as a means to showcase the time-honored ingredients and traditions from the towns and villages of Mexico utilizing a forward-thinking culinary perspective to design awe-inspiring dishes that wow the contemporary diner.
While menu items boasting modern molecular techniques such as foams, gels and airs feel au courant, the character and spirit of the dishes are rooted in classical Mexican flavors, allowing age-old Mexican culinary processes to influence the cuisine. The traditionally lauded components of Mexican fare become the basis for fresh and imaginative dishes that are a creative feast for the senses.
