Growing up in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Bruce Ucan, a Mayan indian, was exposed to the flavors and ingredients of traditional Mayan cooking. He has been cooking in Louisville, KY for over 20 years, and has owned his own restaurant since 1997. The Mayan Cafe, his current restaurant, is a simple, elegant cube that delights customers with his tok-sel lima beans, Yucatec salbutes and other authentic Mayan dishes.
Bruce prides himself in the consistent quality of his food, purchasing as much local coffee, produce, fish & meat as possible. All of the take away, paper & cleaning products used in the restaurant are ecofriendly and biodegradable.
