Six by Nico has announced its fifth menu and the second instalment in its Summer Series. Mexico will be launching for six weeks from 20 May.

The six-course tasting menu will take guests on a summer adventure of food hotspots famed for their unique dishes.

Inspired by the country’s colourful and bold culinary culture, Mexico aims to transport diners from the hazy cactus deserts of Tijuana to the vibrant, bustling streets of Mexico City with each course. This six-course tasting menu, rich in colour and flavour combines elements of both contemporary Mexican street food and ancient culinary classics to provide guests with a taste of the country’s flavourful history.

For 4 days, Chef Nico Simeone and his team explored the depths and local suburbs of Mexico City to serve as inspiration for the upcoming menu. Hosted by a local tour guide, the team were able to discover new places to visit, barely visible to the novice traveller, learning new techniques and ways of cooking, which they have been able to take from years of tradition and incorporate these into their new tasting menu.

For £42, guests will be able to enjoy a taste of Mexico through dishes such as Tostada  - Prawn, Cucumber & Shallot, Crème Fraiche, Burnt Cucumber & Guacamole, Elote - Sweetcorn Fritter, Queso Fresco & Salsa Verde, Barbecoa - Calcot Onions, Roasted Garlic Emulsion, Smoked Ketchup, Smoked Almond Pesto & Pork Crackling, Caldo de Pescado - Sea Bass, White Bean & Chorizo Spiced Hot Broth, Mole - Slow Cooked Chicken Leg Roulade, Crispy Tamales, Serrano Pepper Mayonnaise & Tomato Mole with the option to add on Fried Nachos with Chicken, Queso Blanco, Tomatillo & Chilli Salsa, and for dessert the Pastel Roldan Tres Leches - Pecan Cake, Horchata, Vanilla Tres Leches Sorbet & Citrus.

The Mexico six-course menu will be available at Six by Nico Birmingham between Monday 19 May and Sunday 30 June. Bookings are now open via sixbynico.co.uk/birmingham
