PUEBLA AND OUR CINCO DAYS OF CINCO MENU
...Or is it seis days of cinco? Because starting today, Thursday, until next Tuesday, we will be offering a very special menu inspired by our Chef Moises' hometown recipes from Puebla, Mexico. What does Puebla have to do with Cinco have to do with slamming tequilas and rocking sombreros? Well, funny you should ask: Cinco is not Mexican independence day, it's actually called "El Día de la Batalla de Puebla" - it commemorates the day the Mexican army won a revolutionary battle against the French army in ... you guessed it, Puebla, on May 5, 1862. Actually, only in the state of Puebla do they celebrate cinco de mayo as hard as we do here. So, YAY for Puebla: birthplace of our Chef Moises, culinary capital of Mexico, and site of an epic defeat of the French army - without Puebla, we'd have to celebrate cinco de mayo with snails and frog's legs.
Here's our menu sneak peak - although we said cinco days of cinco at destino, we're gonna up the ante with seis días locos! Starting tonight..
