Sitting 70 metres above sea level on the tip of Bali’s southern peninsula, Banyan Tree Ungasan presents an exclusive Mexican Wine Dinner with Chef José Manuel Morales from 24 – 27 October 2017.
With more than 19 years experiences at various restaurants and resorts in Mexico, this Executive Sous Chef of Banyan Tree Mayakoba has prepared a four-course set menu that will amaze diners with his signature authentic Mexican cuisine. His dishes are Mexican culinary masterpieces that reinterpret classic dishes and reflect the freshest of ingredients, and presentation.
The evening dinner will start off with a ‘Trilogy of ceviche, shrimp, fish and octopus’ as appetizer.
