When Thanksgiving comes around, we can’t help but think about food all the time. Here are some of our favorite Baja foods that we can’t get enough of when we’re on the peninsula, and dream about when we’re not. ¡Buen provecho!
“Chile rellenos. My favorites are the ones at Los Pelicanos in Rosarito.” -Carol
“My favorite place to eat in Baja is Punta Morro in Ensenada. The food is outstanding and view is breathtaking, especially during sunset.” -Monica
“Almejas Gratinadas de Cocteleria Mazatlán. Stuffed and grilled clams. Best enjoyed with a cerveza overlooking the ocean at La Bufadora.” -Maythé
“Not that I don’t love langosta, carnitas, et al, but now I’m relishing (in my mind) the best shrimp tacos I’ve ever tasted–served at Ensenada’s Tacos Chopipo where you might find owner Francisco Orosco cooking your savory food. Chopipos is easy to find on the north side of Calle Diamante, about two blocks east of the McDonalds at the corner of Diamante and Avenida Reforma. Flavor…crunch…ahhh!” -Hugh
“Wherever I am in Baja I look forward to the homemade tortillas. They make any meal extraordinarily delicious.” -Jen
