About Us

Masala y Maiz

Located in Mexico City, Masala y Maiz focuses on the migration of food, culinary techniques and cultural foodways between Mexico, South Asia & East Africa. With a research kitchen, cultural programming, garden, chef residency program and commitment to indigenous grains and farming techniques, we dreamed Masala y Maiz as a restaurant like few others. In creating this project we wanted to create a space that sat at the intersections of artistic & gastronomic disciplines. We wanted it to feel & taste like home. Welcome.
