There’s no mistaking the modus operandi at Los Deseos. This Cabo San Lucas Marina restaurant—part of the Marina Golden Zone family of restaurants and businesses—specializes in traditional Mexican flavors and cooking techniques. Our hands-down favorite appetizer is the decadent tequila-style queso fundido (melted cheese) with fresh, handmade tortillas. Follow it with a nopales salad and La Malinche: chicken breast stuffed with squash blossoms and cuitlacoche, a Mexican delicacy with a smoky sweet flavor that’s a cross between corn and mushroom. You can also opt for a slow-cooked pork shank in salsa verde or something a little unexpected like rose petal quesadillas. And, you can always pair your meal with a cerveza or a margarita with sliced jalapeños bobbing inside.
