Baja Lobster Co. – LCM 42 Winter 2016

baja-lobster-MV-IMG_1802-2If you love lobster—and who doesn’t?—then this is the place to be. Baja Lobster Co. is comfortably ensconced beneath a shade-giving canopy in the Marina Golden Zone, with a front row view of fishing boats and pleasure craft, as well as a warm and welcoming staff willing to bring you as many varieties of melted butter–drizzled crustaceans as your heart (and your taste buds) desire. Lobster bisque and lobster salad are perennially popular starters, but for a taste of langosta Cabo San Lucas style, I recommend a trio of lobster tacos sautéed with tomato, onion, and basil, and served with guacamole, green chiles and sauces that land somewhere between mild and “liquid dynamite” on the spiciness scale. After a brief interlude to top off your butter ramekin, continue on your culinary journey with some fresh tuna tartar and an order of oysters on the half shell—as a palate cleanser—before digging into the main course: a surf and turf special pairing of perfectly grilled lobster tail with a prime cut of filet mignon. Marina Golden Zone, Cabo San Lucas Marina, (624) 145-6011, www.goldenzonecabo.com. Daily 11 a.m.– 11 p.m. All major credit cards and vouchers accepted. $$–$$$ C.S.
