A culinary jewel at Mineral de Pozos: Chilcuague
CHILCUAGUE is a name from the Nahuatl language that refers to the roots of a wild tree that grows endemically in the Sierra Gorda of Querétaro and Guanajuato, whose properties are so extensive that it currently has a wide variety of uses ranging from a cooking seasoning, to analgesic.
CHILCUAGUE is also the name of the restaurant housed within the facilities of CASA DIAMANTE BOUTIQUE HOTEL, a select member of the MEXICO BOUTIQUE HOTELS collection. It is well said that a place is completely known only until you know its food, that is why the Chilcuague Restaurant highlights in its menu select products of the region, looking for its distinguished clientele to get to know the traditional cuisine of its state and its ingredients; among them, of course, CHILCUAGUE, a basic ingredient of many of their dishes.
Chef Sebastián Gálvez Conde was responsible for the creation of his new menu in 2017, in which his creativity was a key element for the combination of flavors, textures and colors that resulted in a unique gastronomic offer at Mineral de Pozos. Best of all, most dishes can be paired with their three different types of VOPPER BEER, which of course is also home made and distributed throughout the Bajío region and central Mexico.
Whether you choose to eat inside the restaurant or on the terrace overlooking the garden and pool, the experience will be totally enjoyable, a pleasure for your palate. To start, we suggest you taste the “Chilcuague Aphrodisiac Ceviche”, based on tuna, corn, various citrus and chilcuague. As for the main courses, we recommend the Casa Diamante Chicken, the specialty of the house or the Vopper al Jerez steak. For the sweet part a Tempura Vopper or a Mineral de Pozos Tamal will satisfy the most discerning palate.
A restaurant that cares about highlighting its state and preserving, despite its innovative concept, the traditional ingredients of Guanajuato, and which also has a factory producing artisan beer (with locally sourced ingredients, of course), is without a doubt A CULINARY JEWEL we should all know.
We invite you to stay at CASA DIAMANTE, dine in the CHILCUAGUE Restaurant and taste VOPPER BEER.
