Mi Casa San José
Want to explore traditional Mexican cuisine while on vacation in Los Cabos? The hacienda-style Mi Casa restaurant in San José del Cabo (as well as its sister spot in Cabo San Lucas) honors the country’s rich culinary and artistic traditions. Its neighbors here in San José del Cabo are the historic mission church and a number of charming art galleries. Oversize murals hearken back to years past, while strolling musicians delight. The rich aromas of traditional dishes like chicken mole and carnitas waft through the outdoor setting. Start dinner with a tortilla soup or shrimp cocktail. The salads feature farm-fresh produce, and the vegetarian chile relleno and mushroom enchilada are two more dishes that impress. So does the chicken chile en nogada. For dessert, try the wonderful pairing of the Tijuana microbrew La Fauna dark beer with chocolate cake. La Fauna is considered México’s version of Guiness.
