Six by Nico Belfast brings the vibrant spirit of modern Mexico with its contemporary and refined take on Mexican food and drink to their restaurant this Summer.

Inspired by the country’s extensive and sophisticated culinary culture ‘Mexico’ aims to transport diners from the hazy cactus deserts of Tijuana to the vibrant, bustling streets of Mexico City with each course. This six-course tasting menu, rich in colour and flavour combines elements of both contemporary Mexican street food and ancient culinary classics to provide guests with a taste of the country’s flavourful history.

The restaurant concept that creates a new menu every six weeks has gone through a number of themes since opening the Waring Street restaurant in Cathedral Quarter earlier this year with themes including The Chippie, Catalonia and the current menu, Thai Street Food, all featured at the popular restaurant.

Chef Nico Simeone and his team invite guests to join the fiesta this Summer with a seductive trip to the heart of Mexico. Mexico may be on the other side of the world but this new dining experience will draw guests even closer to Latin America at Six by Nico Belfast from Tuesday, August 20th.

The new six course Mexico tasting menu includes AMUSE BOUCHE – Lettuce, Lime Leaf & Avocado Gazpacho, Pico De Gallo Salsa; BLOW TORCHED MACKEREL – Watermelon, Green Cilantro Taco, Whipped Creme Fraiche; FRESH BURRATA – Green Chilli Salsa Verde, Cucumber Ketchup, Garden Herbs, Green Tomato Tostada; SEA BASS – White Bean Hash, Chorizo, Pumpkin, Squid Ink & Lemon Emulsion; PORK BELLY – Barbecued Elote, Crispy Fried Cornichon, Roasted Quince.

Fiesta goers will love the sixth dish on the menu that offers a latin twist on the dessert with a CHOCOLATE CRÉMEUX– Banana Ice Cream, Vanilla & Agave Gel, Candied Hazelnuts, Chocolate Taco, Banana Crisp.
