Mosto’s New Head Chef Juan Mateus from Bogota, Colombia will Tantalize Your Senses
A magical place decked out in candles and twinkling lights, Mosto is one of my top picks for a warm and cozy winter treat. And with the welcome new addition of a passionate head chef Juan Mateus (photo above) from Bogota, Colombia in their kitchen, foodies all over Beijing will be snatching up every last seat in a heartbeat.
If I do say so myself, Mosto is a spectacular spot for the BJ FOoDiEs team to have secured for one of their last monthly dinners of 2015! *Save the date: Sunday, November 29th!
“A restaurant known for pouring love into every dish, Mosto never ceases to impress and it’s really no wonder they’ve got everyone swooning after each and every dining experience.” – BJ FOoDiEs
For fellow Mosto/Modo/MOKA (MMM) group’s groupies, you may recognize Juan as part of the original team who first opened MODO in its original concept in Taikoo Li Sanlitun a few years back. Juan is an experienced chef who has toured, opened and operated in fine dining kitchens across the US and Brazil, and Juan is now back to rejoin the famed MMM team in Beijing.
“Juan excels in applying modern techniques in home made, well-crafted food. His heart belongs to the modern Latin-American cuisine, in which he hand crafts dishes combining textures and flavors in even the smallest details. With his love for performance, Juan’s cooking style stimulates all senses.” - Mosto Team
Working alongside Executive Chef Daniel Urdaneta, Juan Mateus will be treating BJ FOoDiEs this Sunday, November 29th to a generous 3 courses meal highlighting a few of his hand-crafted new dishes.
This Red Snapper Carpaccio is topped with small Veggie Pearls
With each foodie spoiled for choice with three dish options per each course, this is really quite the gourmet menu with their two choices for mains including a gorgeous grilled beef tenderloin and roasted salmon. Not to overlook the desserts, Mosto’s Chocolate Souffle is to die for.
November FOoDiEs Dinner Menu by Mosto:
RMB 150/head includes Set Dinner Menu + 1 Drink of Choice
“Indulge for a Cause”
With limited seating, (only 50 seats!), I’d recommend booking your seats ASAP as all seating is now only confirmed by WeChat Transfer (add ID: LumDimSum) or good ol cold, hard cash. After previous BJ FOoDiEs dinners at Palms L.A. and Smokeyard booked out in just a couple days, this incredibly good value deal is sure to book out just as quickly so HURRYYYYYYY!
Knowing that BJ FOoDiEs has arranged such a steal of a dinner deal for you this Sunday, please come prepared to donate a bit extra to this month’s charity of choice- Living Project x Nepal, a community of international friends who organize events to support the educational system in the most affected and remote villages in Nepal in the wake of the earthquake.
