Born in El Grullo, Jalisco, Mexico, Emmanuel Medina comes from a background of enjoying the Mexican traditions of bull riding, festivities and great Mexican food...He didn't have, by any means, the ambition of becoming a Chef, until he arrived to Redmond.
This is when it changed his career.
He developed his culinary skills when he worked at Madaline's Grill in Redmond, alongside the Chef Pablo Peña.
They say that practice makes perfect and he enjoyed what he did that this became his place of improvement for 18 years. This is also the place where he met his future love, Yadira.
After joining their commitment to offer a new experience of Mexican dishes, they both decided to undertake this complex but rewarding journey of creating Carnaval Mexican Grill in November 20th of 2019.
A place where they can mix their Mexican traditions and also experiment with new creative ways of preparing drinks and cuisine.
After 2 years of hard work, they are prepared to bring to the community of Central Oregon the best Mexican Cuisine they have ever tried.
