Alaxemo, Oasis Cafe, Pago
Fans of ZY might want to note the restaurant is no more. Well, sort of. Today the sign on the restaurant changes, signalling the revamp of the business as “Alamexo”. Wait, don’t run off sobbing over the loss of ZY and chef Matt Lake just yet. In an interview with the SL Tribune Lake mentioned, “it’s just a change, not a closure, we’ll offer the same level of service with a new menu”.
For an idea of the cuisine at Alamexo, some brief detective work around the web highlights an Alamexo catering event in the not too distant future – with some quite refined dishes on display – those looking for smothered burritos better keep looking:
Pescado Con Pipian Y Atole: Blue corn-crab crusted rock cod filet, roasted chayote squash, pipian rojo & white corn atole
Costillias Al Piquin: Braised beef short ribs, rajas, crema & salsa chile piquin
Pescado Veracruzana: Daily fresh fish selection cooked in salsa Veracuzana made with roasted tomatoes, sweet peppers, olives & capers, topped with crispy plaintains
Exciting stuff, and no doubt more news to follow.
