His Portuguese and Indian background inspire the direction he gives and he fuses that with his love of Spanish ingredients and traditional dishes, leveraging our combined ethnic make-up. Every dish is approached with a flair for interspersing authentic international spices into the dishes, ultimately creating a juxtaposition of flavors that stretch the diners’ palate for a unique and savory experience.
