Veracruz Coastal Cuisine
Chef-Owners Raul and Olga Reyes come from Alvarado, Veracruz, a town built on a mile-wide strip of land with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and a brackish lagoon on the other. With the bounty of the sea close at hand, fresh seafood is a way of life in Alvarado. But Veracruz is also home to wild boar and turkey, to vanilla orchids and cacao, to tropical fruits and a rainbow of chiles. For nearly five hundred years, the cuisine of Alvarado has evolved through the influence of indigenous, Spanish, French and African cultures in the port city. It is this food that Raul and Olga brought to Dallas with their former restaurant, La Palapa Veracruzana, which the Dallas Observer named the Best Mexican Restaurant in Dallas and that Pegasus News called “fresh, flavorful, unique…a destination for people who like to eat food and talk about it a lot afterwards.” Mesa offers the same authentic coastal cuisine Raul and Olga have been cooking and eating since their childhood using the highest quality fresh seasonal and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Mesa’s commitment to sustainability includes an elegant interior designed using reclaimed woods and metal.
We recently had a new project started in Oak Cliff of a free bus call D-link providing free transportation from down town Dallas thru Jefferson blvd and Davis st. our closest bus stop is on West Jefferson blvd and intersected by Madison st. which is two blocks away from Mesa. Again this bus is completely free and it passes by every 15 minutes.
