Mexican food and art sounds like a winning combo to us. The Philadelphia Museum of Art will be hosting a chef-in residence series featuring cuisines from all over the world. This July the series will feature some authentic Mexican cuisine from Chef Carlos Aparicio.
From Friday July 1st -July 3rd, Chef Carlos Aparicio will be taking over the Café space in the art museum and will be serving a range of dishes that will include:
Tetela (masa pocket filled with refried beans, epazote, avocado, cabbage, onions, garlic, cheese, crema, salsa)
Tetela de Tinga de Pollo (braised chicken, collard greens, onion, garlic, tomato, chipotle)
Aguachile (avocado, hearts of palm, cucumbers, pearl onions, cilantro, scallions, lime, serrano peppers_
Cemita (choice of Chicken Milanese or Portobello Milanese, served with avocado, tomato, red onion, quesillo, chipotle adobo and papalo
Chef Aparicio will also be opening a new Mexican restaurant in South Philly called El Chingon Philly. Born in Mexico and raised in Philly, Chef Aparicio will bring signature authentic Mexican flavors to the Museum of Art for one-weekend only, allowing museum goers to get a first glimpse into food served at his restaurant slated to open this summer. Tickets to the museum are required (reminder that first Sundays are pay-what-you-wish).
