Elite Traveler Culinary Advertorial, September 2015
Between writing a cookbook and running several of his own restaurants, Enrique Olvera has been hailed one of the greatest chefs in the world, following his restaurant success and culinary ingenious. With numerous signature restaurants internationally, the Mexican chef returned to his roots and native country with his newest venture, Manta, in Los Cabos“Home Sweet Home” no matter where its guests are.
Olvera was first drawn to Los Cabos for its reputation of luxury tourism and fine hospitality. With a deep dedication and passion for food, and Olvera’s culinary affinity, Manta’s menus were born. The signature restaurant, at one of Los Cabos’ newest hotels, The Cape, A Thompson Hotel, provides some of the best international food using the best possible ingredients and techniques. Much like the The Cape, Manta blends modern elements with a casual yet warm style.
Manta, the restaurants name has two meanings. The word in Spanish means ‘blanket’, signifying comfort and warmth, two characteristics the restaurants strives to provide diners. The word ‘Manta’ also refers to manta rays, which symbolizes the establishment’s commitment to focus on local and fresh seafood.
The menu carefully blends pan-Pacific influences with traditional Mexican cuisine. For more information on Enrique Olvera’s restaurants, visit: http://www.enriqueolvera.com/. For more information regarding Manta, visit: http://www.thompsonhotels.com/hotels/the-cape-los-cabos/eat-and-drink/manta
