Overview
More
Created and crafted by a group of foodies and chefs, Tomate Quesillo is the result of a 4 year research into the restaurant scene of San Cristóbal De Las Casas. Bringing together the local flavors and the high end restaurants of the city. We strongly believe that the only way to meet and know a culture is by tasting the food and culinary expressions of his inhabitants. So in 2012 we start visiting every restaurant and local food place to meet and greet with the local “Mayoras” and chefs. As this process began, we encounter the freshness of the local products, the value of local creativity and the necessity of expressing this knowledge to the world. We believe that the concept of San Cristóbal food is in his locals, and markets, in his own recipes and veggies, and most important in the people which everyday works in the kitchens to represent the best in town. We know that there´s so much more than this city has to offer.
