“Fresh Fix” was launched at the resort in February of this year. In collaboration with Mexican-born graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, Chef Karla Hernandez developed a healthier culinary experience for select restaurants on-property at Hard Rock Hotel Cancun and Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya (with plans to expand to the remaining all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels in Mexico and the Dominican Republic). Focusing on fresh, organic and locally sourced ingredients, the new innovative healthy food and beverage menu offers chef-crafted cuisine perfect for travelers looking to indulge without derailing healthy eating habits.
The concept is designed to diversify dinner menu options, while highlighting unique flavors and natural ingredients. Whether it’s an appetizer for a social start, a refreshing soup to warm things up or a not-so-sinful dessert, there are unlimited, high-quality options available in select theme restaurant’s unique setting, including freshly prepared food–think crisp salads, gourmet appetizers and decadent desserts.
