Honest Kitchen and care are the fundamental pillars in Escama. Each ingredient used in its dishes is carefully selected and its traceability is supervised from its origin to the dish that is served to diners. This ensures that freshness and quality are present in every bite.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, Caribbean lobster and local fish are the basis of its gastronomic concept. These ingredients are creatively incorporated into each culinary creation, highlighting their natural flavors and surprising the most demanding palates.

The cooking style is described as signature, with a strong influence from contemporary Mexican cuisine and the traditional recipes of Mexican grandmothers. This fusion results in unique and authentic dishes that capture the very essence of Mexican cuisine in every bite.

Among diners, the zarandeado fish, fresh oysters and marinated pork shank are some of the most popular dishes. These authentic dishes, cooked to perfection in their wood-fired kitchen, highlight the flavors and textures that visitors fall in love with.

In terms of sustainability, Escama works with fish and shellfish from sustainable sources from suppliers in the area, who are in charge of guaranteeing quality and responsible fishing at each stage of the process.
