Xilo Street Mexican needed cooking equipment that could execute a variety of traditional Mexican dishes in a small space without a traditional ventilation system. Owners Chef Rosana Rivera and Chef Ricardo Castro chose the Vector® H Series Multi-Cook Oven, because it was the only solution that met all of their needs.
