Mexican food is loved the world over, but to try it fresh and authentic is to truly taste it. For anyone who considers themselves a foodie, Los Cabos is where it’s at. From the Villa La Estancia restaurants, to five-star dining, to chips and salsa on the beach, you will certainly get your fill of fantastic food.
When you order a plate of ceviche, you know what’s being delivered to your table is as fresh as fresh can be. And to foodies, it makes a difference. Anglers head out each and every day to for fresh catches of marlin, tuna, dorado, snappers and others. Organic and locally sourced produce is gaining popularity around Baja, including the popular Flora Farm. Flora’s Field Kitchen is known for using seasonal ingredients, many of which grow on site, to create a spectacular menu of dishes including tuna crudo, pork belly confit with mango tapenade, cappellini with oysters and much more. Have an unforgettable dinner at one of the best restaurants in San Jose Del Cabo, Don Sanchez, and sommeliers on hand to help pair delicious dishes and world-class wines. A few other San Jose restaurants to stop into: La Osteria, La Gabacha and Mi Cocina at Casa Natalia.
Become a tequila connoisseur on your Cabo vacation. Head just a few minutes down the road to San Jose Del Cabo for an introduction to and education of Mexico’s signature liquor at Pancho’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar. First produced in the 16th century, and distilled from blue agave plants, it’s not a real Mexican vacation without a little tequila. During tequila tastings, you’ll learn a bit of the history, how tequila was and is made, and, of course, how to best enjoy a good bottle of tequilla (hint: it’s probably not with a lick of salt and wedge of lime). These tasting rooms also afford you the chance to “try before you buy” a bottle of tequila to take home as a memento.
Hire a Personal Chef
La Estancia Vacations has a network of amazing local partners here in Cabo San Lucas. At your request, we can bring a seasoned chef in to create a menu just for you. Watch as they craft the perfect bowl of guacamole or exactly how they pour they’re signature margarita. And, because they come to you, lounge in the comfort of your own villa and dine al fresco on your private terrace. Whether it’s dinner for two or your hosting for the group, this is the perfect vacation treat for food lovers.
Margaritas On Tap
Margaritas are somewhat synonymous with Mexico. While you’ve likely sipped on a margarita during Taco Tuesday or at your friend’s Cinco de Mayo party, there is nothing quite like a real, authentic, fresh margarita. Make your foodie getaway a quest to find the best margaritas in Cabo. A few we like: Mi Casa in downtown Cabo San Lucas, Monkey Business on Marina Boulevard, Art & Beer in Todos Santos, and Don Sanchez Cantina. Flavors range from the sweet to the obscure including mango, jalapeno basil, citrus on the rocks, tamarindo, and hibiscus.
Sabor a Cabo
For true foodies, there is nothing better than the Sabor a Cabo or “Taste of Cabo.” This annual event brings the best chefs of Mexico and internationally renowned culinary creators to San Jose Del Cabo. Typically held the end of November and early December, Sabor a Cabo highlights everything from the Cabo craft beer scene, to traditional countryside cooking and a wine and art walk. The entire event culminates with the Sabor a Cabo Annual International Food & Wine Festival. Sample incredible food and beverage, and enjoy live entertainment. 2015 will be the event’s 10th year.
