While I have been battling a terrible cold (I’m still sick!), I had the glorious opportunity to travel to Cancun. It was there that I ate some truly spectacular food. What I loved even more was that a lot of the presentational aspects gave me ideas for how I could present my own food in a more artistic and aesthetically pleasing way. We’ll start off with some non-Cancun dishes, then jump right in…
The journey begins with some bing soo, a korean dessert. This is one of my favorite desserts ever! There is shaved ice, ice cream, fruit, mochi rice cakes, and condensed milk. How could you go wrong?
This was from a restaurant called Roti which serves Mediterranean food. I am inspired to make roasted vegetables in the same way they did (they were slightly crispy), as well as falafel.
Now we begin with Mexico! The buffet was pretty spectacular. A wide range of seafood, fresh fruit, and food cooked to your specifications.
While this may look like humble ice cream, it was actually one of the best coconut ice creams I have ever had. Not only was it light and sweet, but it had coconut flakes in it.
One of the best meals I had in Cancun, this was lamb prepared in a Thai Mexican fusion style.
Breakfast was my favorite meal of the day. They would make the most delightful, fluffy delicious waffles right in front of you and slide them onto your plate. They had syrup, nutella, peanut butter, sugar and cinnamon as optional toppings for your waffle.
Look at this presentation!
