The best place to enjoy Mexican food moved a few miles north of Pujol last week, when Mexico City’s best chef Enrique Olvera came to the South Beach Wine and Food Festival in Miami, to host a stand at the popular annual event, Tacos After Dark.

This late-night outdoor taco tasting at Lowes Hotel Miami Beach drew over 600 paying guests, as well as some of the brightest stars of the US food world.

Olvera’s CDMX taco stand, which the chef put together in partnership with CDMX, Mexico City’s official tourist board, was the focal point of the evening, tempting such notable passers-by as US restaurateur and Food Network star Guy Fieri, and the Spanish-American chef José Andrés.

Both Fieri and Andrés stopped by to enjoy Olvera’s mussel tostada, smoked mushroom tostada and fish ceviche tostada, all of which feature in his new book, Mexico from the Inside Out.

Proof, if any more was needed, that Enrique’s take on Mexican food remains a hot offering, on both sides of the border. For greater insight into Enrique’s work and to recreate his Miami dishes, order a copy of Mexico from the Inside Out here.
