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, 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 & social justice & gastronomic disciplines. We want Masala y Maiz to feel & taste like home. Welcome.
