From Chef Guillen:
“After eating Mexican food for so many years I might have grown some disdain towards it but then realized that I’m actually eating different versions of it from many different cultures… I was pounding chicken thinking about Katsu but then thought “why not schnitzel?” & as I pounded more I thought “why not be proud & make it mexican”… kind of silly but it’s honest & its good. & even the dish “Chicken Milanesa” … “Milanese” is Italian as are my Cannellini beans, not Pinto. We’re all the same, just different.” This menu is an expression of contentedness with my own culture’s cuisine and the experiences that have shape shifted its expression along the way.
