The restaurant, which specializes in vibrant and authentic Mexican cuisien is owned and operated by brother and sister duo Jorge Cota and Meliza Miranda. The Scottsdale location comes after Miranda and Cota recently celebrated the three year aniversary of their Peoria location. This will be the pair’s second Valley location with more expansion planned in the coming years.
Miranda comes with a decade of experience working in the beverage industry as a state manager for Constellation Brands. She’s especially proud that Mochilero Kitchen in Scottsdale will offer more than 30 different types of tequila and mescals, among other fine wines and spirits..
Cota, who’s resume includes a decade of experience in chef roles at the Ritz Carlton, Phoenician and JW Marriott, runs Mochilero as a scratch kitchen where everything is made to order, fresh daily and using only the finest ingredients. Cota spends his time in the back of the house, focusing on the flavor profiles and stand-out dishes like his Classic Mole, which was a dish he grew up eating from his grandmother who was from southern Mexico.
Another favorite at Mochilero Kitchen are the variations of tacos, including a vegetarian mushroom taco that gets rave reviews and the Mariscos, a raw seafood offering that is cooked in lime juice.
“These are the most authentic and savory dishes you will find from the different various regions of Mexico,” said Miranda. “When you combine our cuisine with the atmosphere, I think we have created something that has a very traditional warm feeling and is family friendly, and timeless all at the same time.”
Mochilero Kitchen will also offer acoustic entertainment some weekend nights. The restaurant is open for lunch starting at 11:00a.m. and the dinner menu starts at 3:00p.m seven days a week.
