Virtuoso Traveler - June/July 2017 - 21
California casual meets Mexican
kitchens in a series of restaurants strung along the Baja
Peninsula that highlight outdoor
dining and homegrown produce.
Get a taste at the following trekworthy spots.
* In a garden behind the Lomita
vineyards in the Valle de Guadalupe wine region near Ensenada,
TrasLomita serves tacos de
lechón, tres leches cake, and
more from a patio-based kitchen
run by chef Sheyla Alvarado.
Linger over long lunches at tables
arrayed under canopies of drying
* Surfer/chef Javier Plascencia's
new open-air Jazamango lies in
WALKING & HIKING
the surf town of Todos Santos, an
hour's drive from Cabo San Lucas.
Its continually changing menu
might include ﬂash-marinated yellowﬁn, heirloom tomato salad, and
wood-grilled lamb, with ingredients gathered from its own farm,
local ranches, and the nearby sea.
* Flora Farms near San José del
Cabo encompasses everything
from orchards and ﬁelds to a
bar, grocery, and centerpiece
garden-set restaurant, Flora's
Field Kitchen, which showcases
the harvest. Menus are highly
seasonal, but bread and Neapolitan-style pizzas always issue
from the wood-burning oven.
Clockwise from top: Flora Farms and its Neapolitan-style
pizzas, TrasLomita's ceviche verde, and Jazamango's chef
Javier Plascencia and his grilled chocolate clams.
