Pitahayas Restaurant – Los Cabos Magazine #36

Something magical happens when you unite a gorgeous setting—waves lapping against the shores, an enormous palapa built to impress—and incredible ingenuity. Award-winning chef Volker Romeike has created his own brand of fusion; his Pacific Rim cuisine marries the best of Asian flavors and Mexican ingredients in a way that is entirely his own. Here in the Tourist Corridor setting, you can sip on a cocktail as you enjoy a beautiful Cabo sunset, then dine on starters like the duck crepes or handmade shrimp wontons as stars blanket the night’s sky. Entrée highlights include the short ribs with wasabi mashed potatoes, as well as crab-crusted sea bass and twice-cooked pork belly. The dessert menu is filled with confections that could easily be confused with works of art. Chief among them is crème brûlée trio. Manager José Rojas Torres ensures your experience will be extraordinary. Hacienda del Mar, Cabo del Sol, km 10 on the Tourist Corridor, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 145-8010, www.pitahayas.com.
