Restaurant of the Interior of the K’u’uk Republic.
The name K’u’uk comes from the Maya and means “sprout”, very much in keeping with the general concept of the place that is local and sustainable. In K’u’uk the style of cooking is carried out by traditional Mexican and Yucatecan ingredients but, and here is the magic of the place, in new forms and flavors.
K’u’uk reinvents and discovers styles, textures and forms in a “new avant-garde Mexican cuisine”, which combines the best of the ingredients of its garden with new technologies and tools … this brings better smells, tastes and textures, since that without abandoning the traditional ingredients they get new dishes from them … in truth, you will not believe how well presented they are, it is almost a pity to have to eat them of the beautiful that they have left.
