Flavours of Mexico at Sentidos Gastrobar, KL: 11- 14 October 2018

Flavours of Mexico returns to Kuala Lumpur for the fifth time. Organised and supported by the Embassy of Mexico, the gastronomic affair this year will feature Guest Chef Sergio Velázquez who will be showcasing the unique flavours that Mexican cuisine has to offer.

Born and bred in Mexico, Chef Sergio graduated with a Degree in Food Management from Universidad del Valle de México. His passion for the culinary arts saw him express his creativity in renowned restaurants in Mexico such as La Cerveceria and Nemi by Michael Mina. At present, Chef Sergio is a Bangkok-based chef with plans to open his very own authentic Mexican restaurant in Bangkok.

JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur and The Embassy of Mexico co-hosted the launch of Flavours of Mexico V with a celebratory dinner on 10th October, attended by ambassadors, dignitaries, corporate clients, and members of the media. The evening commenced with a speech by H.E. Carlos Félix Corona, Ambassador of Mexico to Malaysia, Mr. Mahmoud Skaf, Area General Manager of JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur, followed by a special presentation of a delectable fusion Malaysian-Mexican dish by Professor Datuk Chef Wan.

The specially curated menu by Chef Sergio will be available from 11 to 14 October for both lunch and dinner (except for dinner on 13 Oct) at Sentidos Gastrobar – The Latin Grill located at Feast Village in Starhill Gallery. Guests can choose either a three-course meal priced at RM55 nett per person or a four-course meal priced at RM65 nett per person.

Start your meal with the Baby Corn with Mayonnaise and Smoked Salt - loved the simplicity of this, which allows the sweetness and crunchiness of the baby corn to shine.

The next appetizer, the Soft fried tortilla with mole had a much bolder flavour thanks to the rich, dark chocolate sauce with hints of spiciness from the chilli.

For mains, diners can choose either the Chicken Mixiote with Pot Vegetables or Portobello Mixiote with Pot Vegetables (suitable for vegetarians). Mixiote is a type of Mexican dish, whereby meat is seasoned with spices and wrapped in banana leaves and cooked either in the oven or steamed. The chicken was moist and tender, and was served with zucchini, potatoes and corn on the cob.

To conclude the dinner, dessert is served  - an Oaxaca Chocolate Ice Cream with Anise Tamale for a truly authentic Mexican experience.
