29 Nov Michin Grill Kitchen & Tequila Bar Six Month Case Study
About Michin Grill Kitchen & Tequila Bar
The idea for Michin Grill Kitchen & Tequila Bar all started in the owner’s native country of Mexico, where the best parties end up with everyone congregating around the warmth of the kitchen. Those wonderful experiences left lasting memories, and made the owner want to share it with others. Michin Kitchen delivers a modern Mexican atmosphere, with clean lines, and contemporary, yet homey, ambiance. They serve fresh, flavorful and distinctive dishes.
Michin Kitchen is a different interpretation of Mexican cuisine. The flavors come from vintage Mexican food with their own spin of taste and uniqueness. The Diabla Taco is a staple with its shrimp, tender octopus and spicy cream sauce on top. The Cubana Torta or Border Taco are both new to the menu with steak cooked on their Josper grill. This is what gives the meat such a juicy flavor. The classic Tita Margarita and Bloody Maria are popular among guest.
