LOS AMATES MEXICAN KITCHEN HAS CLOSED
Dear friends and followers of Los Amates, we want to let you know that Los Amates Mexican Kitchen in Fitzroy has closed it’s doors after 13 years of bringing the most traditional Mexican food for the first time in Melbourne to change the perception Australians had of Mexican food and Culture, we introduced fresh corn Tortillas when people eat Tacos with hard shells, we showed people how to eat real Tacos with dishes like Cochinita Pibil (they call it “pulled pork”) or Cabeza (Beef cheek) or Pastor or Chicken Tinga or Nopales (Cactus) etc. we also made all of our Sauces like Salsa Verde with Tomatillos which people had never heard off and our famous Mole Sauces doing everything from scratch, like Mole Poblano with 16 different ingredients and usually taking up to six hours to make, our our Mole Verde which has e very delicate spicy nutty flavour like nothing else. I am also very proud to know that many Restaurant owners and Chefs to see what we were doing and thus the Mexican craze begun. We are also very proud to have been the catalyst for many of our customers to go to Mexico to enjoy it’s culture and food at it’s best. We made many friends along this voyage also met many amazing people. I want to thank everyone for your support over 13 years but most importantly I want to thank all the wonderful people that worked at Los Amates over the years, their love and support is has been my fuel to keep me going over years. Thank you all, we will take a well deserved rest to then work on some new projects, we’ll keep you posted!
Much love and peace to everyone
