¡Que Fresco! Restaurante
¡Que Fresco! Restaurante is the pulse of ZAMAS; widely renowned for its beautiful ocean views and fantastic food, it creates a beckoning locale in the mode of Tulum as it should be. We're committed to sourcing local ingredients to compose elegant, innovative, and seasonally driven dishes.
Fresh in concept and preparation, the menu’s varied
flavors appeal to many palates. From the gambas pil pil to the thin crust margherita, from Irma’s famous huevos rancheros to the indulgent ricotta doughnuts, a meal at ZAMAS is an experience not to be missed.
Taste of Tulum
We are excited to announce the arrival of chef and owner of Saltine Restaurant, Jesse Houston. Jesse got to know the ZAMAS team as a participant in our 2016 Taste of Tulum program, and we are so happy to welcome him into our home for the coming months!
A little bit about Jesse:
He’s from Dallas, Texas.
He has worked in some of the USA’s top kitchens - think: Wolfgang Puck, Stephen Pyles, Tim Byres, Matt McCallister and John Currence. In 2013, he collaborated with several Mississippi chefs on a dinner at the James Beard House.
During Jesse's time as executive chef at Saltine, he was nominated for a James Beard Award for Best Chef South 2016 and included in Bon Appetit's 50 Best New Restaurants of 2015.
His style of cooking is creative and playful, using modern and innovative techniques.
Saltine is the first restaurant Jesse has owned and pays homage to his adopted hometown’s rich oyster and seafood history.
He’ll be at ZAMAS for the next couple months. Look for fresh flavors, stunning specials, and lots of Latin flare on Southern fare.
More about Taste of Tulum:
The hotel's annual visiting chef and bartender series brings new techniques and flavors to the property each season, and is just one example of ZAMAS' commitment to cross-cultural exchange by connecting travelers to the local culture through a common bond of delicious food.
2016 brought a series of culinary experts from across the United States. As native San Franciscans, ZAMAS founders Daniel Vallejo McGettigan and Susan Bohlken built a lineup from their beloved City by the Bay, while peppering in some Southern Hospitality with chefs from Texas, Georgia, and Mississippi.
Stay tuned for the 2017 lineup. Interested chefs/bar professionals please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
