Chef’s story

At Nano, our dishes maintain my family’s recipes, from my mother’s Seco de Pollo, to the most influential person in this endeavour, my grandmother Ines. Encocado de Camaron is a dish that is specifically from the Esmeraldas Province on the coast of Ecuador, where the population is predominantly Afro-Ecuadorian. We’ve tested countless coconut milks to make sure the sauce is absolutely perfect. Enjoy!
