He went on to work in the kitchen of one of the most luxurious resorts in Mexico, the Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen. Soon after, he got his Master’s Degree in the top culinary school in the world, the Basque Culinary Center in northern Spain. He became a small business owner when he opened Polanquito with his brother, Santiago Navarro in April of 2019. Chef Diego is dedicated to bringing all Houstonians and those visiting Houston a Little Piece of Mexico.

Customer review from Fernando Collada:

 

“The staff is extremely friendly and so helpful explaining all the diverse and intricate dishes.The acapulco shrimp cocktail was refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day. The chilaquiles are to DIE for and the best remedy for hangovers. The chicken with mole is my favorite dish and oh man, they absolutely nailed it! BUT the best part was dessert, the empanadas with rice pudding are worth all the hype. And of course, you can’t forget to try the Horchata latte is an absolute game changer. It’s a family owned restaurant and you can definitely feel it in the comfortable and familiar atmosphere. If you’re looking for authentic and delicious Mexican food, look no more because Polanquito is the perfect spot for you.”
