The Mayan Café, an indigenously-inspired farm-to-table restaurant in Louisville, KY. The Mayan culture, one known for rich cooking traditions, still lives on through our chef, Bruce Ucán, a Mayan Indian from Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Here, at the Mayan Café, Chef Ucán fuses traditional Mayan flavors, ingredients & cooking techniques with local, sustainably-farmed ingredients. One of Louisville’s food critics, Marty Rosen, said it best : “…it’s true that Ucán’s cuisine draws on his Yucatan heritage. But it’s also true that his cooking is shaped by an original, sensual imagination that transcends his geographical origins."
