El Rudo Gourmet

Is the result of a business partnership between two dear compadres living in Canada. Paula Zavala, a well recognized Mexican-born Chef, and Cesar Mendoza, former diplomat, foodie and Mexican gastronomy aficionado.

Everything started when they stormed an industrial kitchen and didn't leave until they created the perfect Sauce.

El Rudo Pairing Ideas

Shrimp all Macha

Macha Sauce (Salsa Macha)


The name comes from a traditional type of Sauce from Mexico.
The actual place of origin is unknown as it is disputed between a couple of towns that guarantee they were the creators.
The traditional version is generally very spicy as it is usually made with "chile de arbol" which is one of the hottest dried chiles in Mexico.

At El Rudo, we decided to create our own version.
Like the traditional, our Macha is oil based but we added different dried chiles (not hot) to provide a unique smokiness and the right level of spice. Our version is a unique chile crisp condiment!

During our handcrafted process, we mix different ingredients, including seeds and fruits to provide a tangy, bittersweet flavour.

Our Salsa Macha can be enjoyed in either one of our two versions, Original and Hot. Both hold our fantastic signature flavour, but our hot version will definitely make you sweat!

Put it on pizza, pastas, soups, meats, sandwiches, etc. It is a fantastic "enhancer" for all types of food. It can also be used to marinade steaks, chicken, shrimp or fish.
