Happy Chefsgiving: Olga and Raul Reyes

by Steven Doyle

Thanksgiving is upon us once again and all the gobblers are running for cover. To get you in the mood for a little fun and relaxation we asked a few chefs around Dallas several questions so we get our dinner cooked just right. We will run their answers both today and tomorrow, so check back often to see how your favorite chef weighs in on the holiday.

Olga and Raul Reyes operate Mesa Veracruz Coastal Cuisine, their family restaurant in Oak Cliff, and offer their holiday greetings. The restaurant is a beautiful oasis and offers authentic interior Mexican cuisine such as their beautiful house-made moles and fresh and bountiful seafood dishes. They are an adorable couple that offers simple hospitality in a world where the word often falls unnoticed.

When you go to Mesa next, ask Raul to play a tune for you on his guitar. He can make up a special song just for you and your family.

Read what the Reyes sent us this holiday season.    Continue reading

Mesa Veracruz Has New Fall Menu

The menu was just recently updated and we were invited to sample some of the new cuisine.

You may still enjoy the classics such as Mesa’s ceviche, which is made sweet with a slight tomatoey goodness and the addition of ripe avocados and fresh cut cilantro that reminds me of my first vacation in Mexico. Or the classic Enmoladas which is made with house-made mole which takes a full day to create and well over 20 ingredients. The family has mad skills.   Continue reading
