Welcome Board: Mexican Breads & Pastries, Fresh Fruit 

Huevos Ahogadas (Drowned Eggs): A traditional Mexican breakfast, akin to Eggs in Purgatory or Shakshuka, this dish features poached eggs in a rich broth made with tomatoes, onions, garlic, guajillo peppers and bay leaves. Topped with fresh avocado, cilantro and onions and served with warm corn tortillas.

Cocktail: Raspberry-Ginger Mimosa with Cava

Enchiladas Verdes (Green Enchiladas): Corn tortillas stuffed with housemade chorizo, served with creamy tomatillo salsa and dressed with cotija cheese, crema, and cilantro.

Cocktail: Bloody Maria, homemade and extra spicy with Tequila, rimmed with Tajin

Pan de Pobre (Poor Man's Bread): A traditional breakfast in Merida, Yucatan, this Mexican take on French Toast is re-invented with condensed milk, real Mexican vanilla and fluffy egg whites. Served with homemade spiced warm syrup with raisins and fresh berries.

Cocktail: Fresh Mint Paloma-Style Limeade with Vodka

Coffee, tea and assorted juices.


About Chef Alex Flores-Perez

Alex was born and raised in Mexico City and spent his young adult years in Playa del Carmen. He recalls spending a good part of his youth at his grandparents’ home who never needed much of a reason to throw a party and cook up a feast. After college and a detour through Monaco, Alex returned to Mexico City and began working under the tutelage of the famed Mexican chef Ricardo Munoz Zurita. Alex launched Pibil Columbus Catering in 2016 with a mission to bring authentic interior Mexican food to the American table and dispel the notion that Mexican food is all rice and beans and hard-shell tacos. His food is simple yet elegant, packed with color and flavor.
