CEF Stories: Chef Mi Dia Gabriel DeLeon

Jul 23, 2015 04:39PM ● Published by Dia

We cover the whole spectrum of Mexican food: Tex-Mex, Mexican street food, authentic Mexican and New Mexican.

As a kid, Gabriel DeLeon was fascinated by the different foods his father prepared for him and his brother. When DeLeon’s father opened La Margarita in Irving several years later, DeLeon knew he wanted to be in the business. An honors graduate from the Art Institute of Dallas who trained in Mexico City with Chef Patricia Quintana, DeLeon is well equipped to prepare each and every made-from-scratch dish at Mi Dia, where he serves as head chef. Using only the highest quality ingredients, each meal is guaranteed to be an experience for the senses. Mouthwatering offerings like the Cochinita Pibil and Duck Carnita street style tacos are among guest favorites, and the restaurant’s spicy hot sauce is a well-known staple.
