Tantalizing chocolate desserts are always on the menu at Caracol – Hugo Ortega’s highly acclaimed Uptown eatery. Chef Ortega, a master of authentic Mexican cuisine, makes these scrumptious treats the real artisan way – entirely from scratch – much like he and his brother did years ago with their grandmother in Mexico.
At Caracol, El Coco is the scrumptious sweet star; a dark chocolate sphere concealing mouthfuls of creamy richness! Simply put, this dessert is ‘the bomb’. 🙂
Literally crack open El Coco’s chocolate coconut shell exterior to reveal gorgeous coconut buttercream, ganache and streusel, along with whipped coconut…such a cool concept dessert! You’ll have to experience this level of lusciousness firsthand.
Now, Chef Ortega’s award-winning creations are forever captured in his latest cookbook, Street Food of Mexico, available through his website.
