Meet the Chef
Chef Mario Soto
Chef Mario Soto began working at the age of 17 in an industrial cafeteria. At age 19 he arrived at China Grill, located in the Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City. There he met Chef Hugo Sánchez, who polished his basic knowledge in the kitchen. Together with Hugo Sanchez, the Executive Chef of China Grill, a Frenchman named Philippe Steiman, taught him the basics of French cuisine. From that day forward, Soto fell in love with the so-called "mother of gastronomy" and knew that this would be the cuisine to which he would dedicate his life.
