MALVA RESTAURANTE
Valle de Guadalupe
Baja California
25 de Junio de 2017
A nuestros clientes, amigos, familia y comunidad en general;
Anteponiendo como siempre un saludo fraterno y el agradecimiento que personalmente y como empresa hemos recibido, nos acercamos a ustedes por este medio para comunicarles que MALVA Restaurante permanecerá cerrado de manera temporal, y que utilizaremos también este medio para comunicarles nuestro regreso a los fogones.
El motivo de este impasse lo habremos de comunicar tan pronto nos sea posible y oportuno, por el momento y para disipar cualquier tipo de rumor enfatizamos que es un cierre temporal voluntario pero imprevisto.
Esperamos cuanto antes poder servirles de nuevo y honrar todas las reservaciones que quedaron sin atender, a quienes se vieron afectados por esta situación, nuestra humilde y sincera disculpa además del agradecimiento por su paciencia y preferencia.
De nuevo gracias por el apoyo que nos han brindado siempre, estaremos de vuelta con brios y ganas renovadas tan pronto nos sea posible.
Atentamente
CHEF ROBERTO ALCOCER
MALVA RESTAURANTE

New Restaurant: Tizne at Viña Emiliana


We were in the Valle last weekend with a group of friends.  The primary reason for the trip was to attend the Conchas dinner at Finca Altozano, but exploring is always part of our itinerary. Unfortunately, my wife and I had to head home a little earlier than we expected, but our friends were able to spend some time searching for gems.  They found one at Viña Emiliana where two young chefs, Miriam Mo and Mel Saldívar Ángeles, have opened the campestre, Tizne.  I can't wait to try it out.
