For people in Hong Kong – and indeed around the world – Mexican food may conjure up images of nachos and tacos. But there is a great deal more to Mexican cuisine than these popular dishes, as Verde Mar shows.
The name, which means “green sea,” on the one hand represents the turquoise sea in Mexico, and on the other symbolises fresh and healthy fare. Established by Vivian Wong in 2015 and led by Executive Chef Eligio Escobedo, the restaurant shines a spotlight on some of the healthier elements of authentic Mexican cuisine. Although fans of nachos and tacos needn’t be concerned – both these well-loved classics are also available.
“Here we serve traditional Mexican cuisine with authentic flavours,” said Wong. “Mexican food is not limited to pub food. We want diners to explore more about Mexican cuisine and enjoy a healthy meal with heart and passion.”
