For our very first dinner series Zhorigo invited Jorge “Mole” Leon (working at Pujol in Mexico City) and mezcal producer Carlos Moreno from Mezcal Koch in Oaxaca. Creating amazing mezcal cocktail, Alexandra Parcau from Art Cocktail Club in Paris joined our team.

 

Together with 3 different restaurants (Trube Zollikon, Bauernschänke and Gamper) chef Olivier Bur and the team created unique evenings. Each dinner highlighted Mexican produce and the 3 star ingredients; mais, mezcal and mole.

For our very first pop-up in Zurich, we teamed up with the fantastic team at Central Bar. The Zhorigo Trompo Team took over the window and served tacos, paletas and cocktails all summer long. Our mission was to bring a piece of Mexico to the streets of Zurich, using as much Swiss and organic produce and ingredients as possible. We got our masa freshly milled from the local company Masamor and served handpressed tortillas to every order. 

We also gathered some of our friends from the gastro-bizz in Switzerland, made up a Family Fiesta and sent special tacos flying out of the window. Big thanks to our guest taqueros/taqueras for making it happen.
