Chef Axel Correa Mancera might just be the name that you add to your list of favourite chefs after you’ve tasted his culinary magic at MOJJO Rooftop, a dining destination like no other in Bangkok. This culinary virtuoso was born in the vibrant nation of Mexico, a place bursting with colour, culture, and of course, a rich culinary heritage.
His passion for Mexican cuisine was ignited in his hometown, Mexico City, from where he embarked on culinary adventures across various top-tier restaurants around the world. And now, here you have him, enchanting the city of Bangkok – dishing out his creations from the mesmerising rooftop of MOJJO.
Axel’s culinary journey
Axel’s talent expanded as he explored various kitchens around the globe. His journey led him to the doors of the first-ever Peruvian restaurant in Doha. Here, he had the honour of working alongside renowned chef Gaston Acurio. Under the guidance of these culinary geniuses, Chef Axel sharpened his skills and ingrained an even more profound understanding of Latin American cuisine.
Not stopping there, Axel then spent time at COYA in Doha. During his tenure at COYA, the restaurant garnered multiple awards for being the best Latin American establishment in town. It’s becoming clear – Chef Axel has this magic touch when it comes to spicy, vibrant cuisine.
A voracious learner, Axel’s passion led him to Dubai and the Maldives. At these countries, he further broadened his culinary outlook and understanding of both Mexican and Peruvian cuisine.
Shaking off the comfort of the familiar, Axel set foot in Bangkok, a city teeming with dynamic tastes and unique ingredients. He relished the challenge and opportunity to work with ingredients that were once foreign to him but are now stars in his gastronomic show. His delightful vision was to marry the bold flavours of Latin American cuisine with the unique Thai produce he discovered.
His plan? To surprise and delight diners at MOJJO Rooftop Bangkok by introducing them to the beauty and complexity of Latin American cuisine, all while respecting and celebrating the rich Thai culinary culture. Basically, he’s sprinkling a bit of Mexico over Thailand, and we’re here for it.
