A restaurantin Salzburg is offering diners an exquisite treat this month: the cuisine of renown Mexican chef Enrique Olvera.
Olvera, whose restaurant Pujol ranks 36th in the world's 50 best restaurants list, created a menu that will be featured all month long at Ikarus, which is located at Hangar-7.
The Mexican-themed menu will feature 11 courses which blend Olvera's avant-garde ways with traditional Mexican ingredients. A total of three menus will be available: the Enrique Olvera Menu (which you can see below), an alternative seafood-based menu and a vegetarian option. Judging from the dishes below, the food seems absolutely amazing.
