Renowned Mexican chef Enrique Olvera will open his latest restaurant at El Camaleón Golf Club at Mayakoba when “KOBA” launches in June. KOBA will celebrate Olvera’s signature locally-inspired cuisine, which has earned him recognition from Food & Wine as one of the “10 Next Superstar Chefs” and a spot on The San Pellegrino List of “The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2013” for his Mexico City restaurant, Pujol.
Overlooking the 18th hole at El Camaleón, KOBA will offer an alternative take on international comfort foods, prepared with a Mexican twist and fresh ingredients native to the Yucatan. The menu will encompass traditional dishes such as ceviche, tostadas, tacos and sandwiches, but with a modern, elevated presentation in keeping with Olvera’s style. Signature entrees will blend cross-continental flavors, such as pasta with locally-caught lobster meatballs and crispy octopus tacos highlighted with the rich, smoky flavor of adobo.
An inventive cocktail and Mexican-focused wine list will complement the menu. Signature drinks will make use of fine herbs, fruits and spices harvested fresh from the resort’s backyard garden, including native Guanabana, Guayaba and Dragon Fruit. KOBA at El Camaleón will also serve a typical Mexican breakfast daily, a Sunday brunch and a tasting menu on Fridays and Saturdays (with limited seating) that changes weekly.
Now, in addition to the country’s best golf course, golfers at Mayakoba will be able to enjoy Mexico’s finest cuisine prepared by one of its best chefs! For more information on KOBA at El Camaleón, please call +52 (984) 206-4653 or visit www.mayakobagolf.com
