  • What do you get when you take a renowned sushi chef from Osaka, and put them in the middle of a Mexican vineyard supplied with local seafood?

  • Basically the Napa Valley of Mexico, just an hour and a half south of Tijuana.

  • It's a collaboration with Drew, a longtime friend and chef.

  • My friend Toshi thinks about stuff different, and I think about things different than Toshi.

  • So I think we're producing something that's celebrating Guadalupe Valley.

  • And vineyard owner Natalia.

  • My parents came here because of the wars in Europe.

  • In history, it's quite a new place. So it's very exciting to be part of making a culture and defining an identity.

  • Together, these three have created one of the most magical dining experiences in the region.

  • There's no written menu here, so dinner is always a string of delectable surprises.

  • [Spanish] Everyday I have to think about many things in a short amount of time.

  • [Spanish] I like it a lot.

  • If you're lucky you'll be served melt in your mouth striped bass dripping with yuzu saffron butter or grilled citrus glaze quail topped with a soy cured egg yolk.

  • Drooling.

  • [Spanish] Fried eggplant.

  • [Spanish] Pickled vegetables.

  • [Spanish] Crab cucumber roll.

  • [Spanish] Oyster shooter.

  • [Spanish] Black cod marinated with Sweet Miso.

  • [Spanish] Bon appétit!

  • [Spanish] Everyday is a new day for all of us, and we can't waste it.

  • [Spanish] We should think about what we can do with our day, or the next one.

  • Whether you're coming from Osaka, Switzerland, or Avenida Revolucion, Valle de Guadalupe is a place you might want to refill your glass and stay a while.

  • [Spanish] It's incredible.

  • [Spanish] Yeah, thank you very much.
