Mexico Independence Day!
September 13, 2018
A collaboration between La Costena and The Embassy of Mexico in Singapore, we’re delighted to be involved with the country’s 208th Independence Day to celebrate all things Mexican, and the scrummy food was indeed one of the highlights of the evening. As the custodian of La Costena brand in Singapore and Malaysia, it was only befitting for us to support the annual festival by contributing ingredients such as sliced jalapeno, Mexican salsa, refried black beans, chipotle in adobo sauce, and green tomatillo for the homecooked dishes that were lovingly prepared and served by The Embassy.
Guests, business partners and government officials were treated to a feast of authentic Mexican dishes like chicken mole Poblano – a rich dark sauce made with no less than 20 ingredients including chilli peppers, spices, and chocolate to counteract the spiciness – it was certainly a party in the mouth to say the least! Other highlights include a traditional ceremony officiated by the Ambassador, Mr Nathan Wolf, whose rousing speech and cheer stirred the patriotic spirit amongst the 300 guests at Sentosa Island resort.
We continue to welcome the Mexican community in Singapore with opened arms and look forward to fruitful ties with the nation who brought tacos, nachos, guacamole, burrito, enchiladas, quesadillas to our table – “Viva Mexico, Viva La Independencia!”
