Among customers, the favorite pastries are guava and goat cheese, gin tonic, and cacao.

In an interview with EL UNIVERSAL in English chef Roberto Gutiérrez disclosed that BOCA is set to bring an innovative culinary trend to Mexico City: sweet dishes with their own personality and codes, shading away the limits that separate the sweet from the savory in a unique dining experience in Latin America's culinary hub.

The inventive and creative chef is supporting local economy and taking advantage of all the fresh ingredients Mexico has to offer while delivering unique desserts that are both pleasing to the eye and the palate.
