Ongoing at the Travail MPLS Residency


KUA: Modern Mexican

Through September 14

Travail heads south of the border for its third concept at the Minneapolis Residency. Introducing KUA, a Mexican-inspired tasting menu in collaboration with our friend, the talented chef Gustavo Romero, a native of Mexico City. Inspired by favorite mercados and restaurants in Roma, Polanco and other hot colonias (neighborhoods) in this historic and cosmopolitan city, this incredible tasting menu melds ancient Aztec ingredients with contemporary Mexican culinary techniques to create a truly memorable evening.

Kua, the Aztec word for “devour,” is an apt moniker for this modern Mexican feast, which includes courses such as swordfish ceviche, chile rellenos, Konro-grilled meats, prickly pear mezzo, al pastor tacos, tamales, house-made horchata, cocoa chili and more.
