Cafe Ynez

Executive chef, Gabriel Romero, brings the flavors of his home, Mexico City, to our Philly neighborhood.

“The flavors are a direct homage to the authentic flavors of Mexico City.” – Craig LaBan

Mexico City cuisine is a blend of that city’s Aztec origins, Spanish history, and cosmopolitan present.  Chef Hernandez takes the basic elements of its cuisine – corn, beans, and chilies – to make both traditional and modern flavors. For example, guacamole is an Aztec all-star, while slow-cooked (pork) carnitas and chicken tinga draw on the import of pigs and chickens by the Spaniards, and modern Mexico City’s bold flavors.
