The Bears Den International Kitchen

About
Our philosophy is a simple one: Quality over Quantity. Our menu is internationally inspired with hints of Mexican cuisine on every plate. We truly believe in sourcing the best ingredients possible, everything on the plate is there for a specific reason. Think of an orchestra, if every musician is great, but one is out of tune, it ruins the whole experience. So we concentrate on flavors over bland ; refinement over generic; and audacity over conventional. It’s what we do that defines us and it’s our passion that drives us!
