Orange County OC Chef Daniel Godinez Opening Modern Mexican Restaurant in Pasadena, located in the previous space occupied by Azeen’s Afghani Restaurant.
Daniel Godinez studied at the Instituto Mexico de Artes Culinarias and moved to the United States 15 years ago. He previously worked at Stonehill Tavern in Dana Point before opening Anepalco’s in 2008.
He prides himself on making food from his native Mexico with a twist to make it different from other Mexican restaurants. Later this year, he will open El Mercado – focusing on regional Mexican cuisine – in downtown Santa Ana.
