Milpa Grille

Determined to discover the true taste of our Mesoamerican ancestors’ diet, we conducted extensive research into the origins of milpa. Our investigative efforts allowed us to unearth the early usages of corn, a staple ingredient in Mesoamerican prosperity and civilization. At Milpa Grille, we pay homage to our ancestors and the practice of milpa by featuring the three core ingredients—corn, squash, and beans—in our menu. Our culinary creativity allows us to reimagine traditional Mesoamerican food and share our vision with our community.
