We are now settled into our residency here in Mexico and have a few weeks of service under our belt. Much of our success so far is attributed to the people from all over Mexico who have helped us finalize every detail, material and the produce we need for our restaurant. Many of these people have become our friends, including the Mundo Maya Foundation (Fundación Haciendas del Mundo Maya).
Mundo Maya works for the sustainable social and economic development of Mayan communities in the Yucatan Peninsula. Their focus is on promoting the quality and tradition of the work of local producers and master artisans. We have sourced a great deal of produce and crafts through the Mundo Maya – everything from tomatoes, corn and pumpkin to napkins, cup holders and serving baskets. We know our relationship with the Mundo Maya will continue well beyond our time here in Tulum. For us, this is the first chapter in a very long collaboration.
For that reason, we have spent the last couple of weeks also honing in on a menu for our bar. This is our chance to serve a few more guests, and an opportunity to give a little back to Mundo Maya.
From Wednesday the 3rd of May, we will be opening up our bar. There will be only 12 seats available each night. The menu costs $100, $90 of that will go directly to our friends at Mundo Maya, which will be channeled to support the producers and craftspeople themselves.
