🎤 7 questions with Cassandra Reynoso from La Victoria
Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do: "I'm Cassandra Reynoso, born and raised in Mexico, currently living in and loving Mallorca. I have been away from home for some time now and oh how I missed the street taste! Whenever I went to a Mexican restaurant I felt so sad that people thought Mexican food is Tex-Mex, when it is not. No one in Mexico eats Tex-Mex. Tex-Mex is our enemy! So, I had to cook it myself. For 12 years I have experimented with techniques and ingredients and finally I nailed it, authentic Mexican street food in Mallorca.
High quality, tasty tacos made from prime ingredients, the freshest guacamole you can get, exquisite ceviches, sauces made from scratch, tostadas, quesadillas and much more. My love for cooking and the immense variety the market had to offer encouraged me to experiment even further, so I created a Mexican fusion line for not so delicate palates who enjoy an avalanche of surprising flavours and colours."
