Hoja Santa

Hoja Santa

Forget Tex-Mex, pure Mexican food in all its flavourful glory is the newest source of inspiration in the world of cuisine. Throw out any and all preconceived biases you may have acquired from cheap so-called “Mexican” fast-food – the basics of true Mexican fare actually provide very fertile ground for all sorts of experimentation. If you want to test this out for yourself, head to the latest member of Albert Adrià's empire of cuisine in Barcelona – the Mexican restaurant Hoja Santa.

The idea for the restaurant came from Adrià's visit to Mexico along with the current head chef of the restaurant, Paco Méndez – himself a native of Mexico and onetime chef at the Adrià brothers' legendary elBulli restaurant. At Hoja Santa the menu could be called a contemporary marriage between avant-garde cooking techniques and traditional Mexican food. Absolutely everything at Hoja Santa is an experience – from the plays on flavours and textures to the design on the plates; but at the same time, one is made to understand that the circulatory foundation here is utterly and wholly Mexican. The saturation and variety of flavours is simply astonishing, and as in all of Albert Adrià's restaurants, Hoja Santa also serves the famous “liquid olives” from elBulli, except that here they are bright green and spiced with decidedly Mexican seasonings.
