The Cuban people inspire Chef Raynold Mendizábal. The joy and intensity with which they go through life, their bright spirit and innate optimism no matter how hard the struggle; is what inspires him.
It’s been a long dream of Chef Mendizábal to represent and promote his culture through his craft, and here it is! El Sapo is rooted in tradition and unmistakably Cuban, full of intense flavors, laughter, music, colors and aromas. We hope our happiness is contagious. We want to give you a little bit of the Cuba that he loves so much.
