Gastronomía

"The  Mexican  cuisine  stands  out  for  its  colourful  and  flavoursome  food  and  for  this Baja  California  is  the  precursor  of  culinary  trends,  featuring  some  of  the  best restaurants of Mexican and international cuisine such as Chinese, Japanese, French and Spanish, as well as the new trend for many mouths called “Urban Kitchen”. We share a list of the “must try” drinks and dishes when visiting this region. 

Margarita
The  drink  became  popular  during  the  New  Port  Beach  regatta  in  the  mid  50’s,  it emerged in Ensenada as a request by Margarita Orozco David “Deny” Negrete, who took the “martini”, squeezed one ounce of lemon, half of tequila and three quarteres of  an  ounce  of  Cointreau,  and  served  the  mixture  into  a  frosted  neck  glass  with lemon and salt.

Clamato
The   second   creation   that   emerged   in   this   northwestern   Mexican   state   is   a combination  of  tomato  juice  and  clam.  The  drink  was  created  in  the  hotel  bar Lucerna, Mexicali.

Caesar Salad
The third creation of Baja California, which originated in the first half of last  century in the  Cesar Cardini’s  restaurant,  where  one  night,  when  the  kitchen  was  closed  and the  customers  demanded  to  eat  something,  for  the  first time,  the  chef  prepared antipasto   of   Roman   lettuce,   garlic,   Dijon   mustard,   eggs,   pepper,   anchovies, parmesan and croutons.  

Chinese Cuisine
It will seem strange, but in Mexicali the dining experience also includes these dishes with a range of over 100 Chinese restaurants of the highest quality. This abundance is  due  to the fact  that  thousands of  Chinese  migrants began  to  settle  since  the  late 18th Century, and today, a century later, the oriental heritage is evident

Baked bread in brick oven
If the sweet bread leads you to explore villages and entire cities, a visit to Tecate will be  more  than necessary.  There, the  bakers  have  inherited  the  tradition of baking  in brick  ovens,  and  the  bread  has  the  variety  and  creativity that  characterizes  the industry  in  other  parts  of  the  country:  shells,  ears,  horns,  campechanas,  cocoles, piglets...

Apple Pie
In  San  Antonio  de  las  Minas, one of the  three  main  towns  that  make  up the  Valley, awaits  a  secret  ready  to  conquer  your  palate  by  way  of  dessert:  apple  pie of  the region in the Meson de Leonardo’s, where breakfasts are also classic."
