INTRODUCING LA GRINGA TOSTADERIA
The Time Out Market demo kitchen, the market’s only open-kitchen counter, welcomes La Gringa Tostaderia in October 2019. Fell hard for the artisanal toast trend? There’s a new open-faced dish to get excited about: Mexican tostadas. At La Gringa Tostaderia, chef Miguel Angelo Gomez Navarro (a.k.a. Fish) presents the humble tortilla in delightful, unexpected ways—check out the seafood-packed campechana, with octopus, shrimp and charred veggies. Drawing from his Tijuana roots and his family’s Puebla traditions, Fish goes deep into Mexican gastronomy to bring guisos (traditional stews) and mixiote (pit-barbecued meat) to Miamians. He evens riffs on the chalupa for the first time—with shredded beef, cotija cheese and salsa verde—blowing the familiar fast-food variety right out of the water.
