Dexcaro combines two completely different concepts in one restaurant. Urban Food, perfect for dining with family and friends in a more informal and street-style setting, and Ossadía as a place for avant-garde cuisine aiming for a Michelin star.
Both concepts share the kitchen, which has been the case for the last 5 months, when Carlos, the chef, decided to merge them into Dexcaro. However, depending on which type of cuisine you choose, the setting will be different. Urban Food uses a more industrial-style area, while Ossadía has a private dining room or is inside the actual kitchen.
Urban Food has been in operation for 3 years. It opened in December 2020 at Els Magazinos market in Denia. One year later, in 2021, Osadía was introduced with its gastronomic menu. Now, in 2023, they have merged into the same location to provide a better experience for both diners who want to enjoy a different culinary experience in Denia.
Who Is Carlos G Moreno?
This chef is originally from Granada and has been settled in La Marina Alta in Denia for the past 12 years. He received his training at Puerto Blanco, a restaurant located in Calpe, and also worked at Michelin-starred establishments. Three years ago, amidst the pandemic, he opened Urban Food and Ossadía in December 2020.
The cuisine is a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian flavors with a touch of Peru. Carlos explains that he has always been drawn to Asian cuisine because of its discipline, and Peru has also received these Asian influences.
DISHES THAT BREAK CONVENTIONS
One visually striking dish is the Wagyu (sashimi on a skewer). Another standout dish is the Beluga lentils (Dalmakhani), which transport you to India and are cooked as if they were an Italian risotto.
URBAN FOOD: STREET-STYLE MENU IN A VIBRANT ATMOSPHERE
“Breaking the rules is the philosophy of our more rebellious section of the restaurant. That’s how we cook, create our recipes, and lead you to feel unique sensations with each dish,” says the chef.
The rebellious dish at Urban Food is the hot dog served with Satay sauce with peanuts and popping candy that explodes in your mouth.
Urban Food serves only menu dishes at individual tables. The good news is that well-behaved and controlled dogs are allowed.

OSSADÍA: LOCAL PRODUCTS WITH A PERUVIAN, JAPANESE, AND MEXICAN TWIST
If you choose Ossadía for your meal, you’ll find a private dining room, a single table, and an exclusive tasting menu with American, Peruvian, Mexican, French, and Asian flavor references.
HIGHLIGHTED DISHES AT OSSADÍA
Like a journey from China to Galicia, the delicious Wotong with Octopus is served, accompanied by Chinese Hot and Sour Soup made from shrimp head juice.
