This restless and innovative chef has gone a long way to impose his personality on each of his dishes. From the Kokotxa in the Old Town, with Muguruza, to Martín Berasategui´s Bodegón Alejandro, passing through the Abarka in Hondarribia, Trincado sought new airs abroad by continuing his learning with Didier Garbage in Las Landas, La Perouse in Paris and Labota in Geneva.
But without a doubt, his grandmother Faustina Zaldua and his father Mitxel, together with Mari Carmen Trincado, who were in charge of the Mirador de Ulía for decades, have had the most influence on his fondness for cooking, and Rubén is the third generation in the same house.
He was the winner of the Martín Berasategui-Alcorta mini-kitchen award in 2006 and since 2010, he has earned 1 Michelin star.
Rubén Trincado offers innovative cuisine with no complexes but rooted in traditional cuisine, from which he has inherited his passion for flavors and aromas, applying on them the most advanced techniques to surprise diners with the composition of the dish, but above all, with his accuracy.
