Owner Alejandra Aco was inspired to share the true flavor of her native Puebla and to cast aside misperceptions of Mexican cooking that abound in New York. The result of the fusion of the culinary traditions of Mexico’s colonial period (16th century), outside influences including Spanish, French, and Arabic, prepared with indigenous ingredients that could only come from Puebla. Each influence came with unique ingredients such as spices and chili peppers, as well as special tools and processes that enriched the cuisine of Puebla, making it particularly rich and varied.
