Here, in this post I present a series of goodies I had, but first the man, the chef behind the show: Dan Durkin. Chef Dan Durkin, a native of Colarado, US, spent a significant amount of his youth in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, which inspired his interest in and love for Mexican cuisine. A certified chef with more than twelve years of experience under his belt, Dan has consulted with several prominent food and beverage brands in Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia Hong Kong, Jakarta and Thailand.

How can one forget the desserts! Signature desserts include the molten Mexican Chocolate Cake with a decadently gooey fudge center with a hint of chili powder, the milk-soaked Tres Leches Cake.
