Martha Ortiz’s Dulce Patria caused quite the storm in Mexico City, and the world-renowned chef has now launched Ella Canta at the InterContinental Park Lane. Prepare to sample modern Mexican cuisine at its finest: vampire ceviche, seafood and lobster pozole with cacahuazintle corn as well as a standalone cantina-style bar with a penchant for rare mezcal. Martha’s cult following in Mexico is largely down to her ability to blend traditional Mexican cookery traditions with contemporary techniques. London certainly knows its tacos by now, but this will take it to a whole new level: expect to find out how life-changing a great mole or crispy pork tamale can be.
