Los Cabos Magazine | Summer 2016 89 DINING introduced people to just these flavors. Guests are invited to discover Nick-San’s delicious recipes and be surprised by its extensive menu. The best known culinary contribution from Japan is, of course, sushi. But you may be surprised to know that Nick-San does not take its cues from what’s trending but rather in the ancient traditions. Here you’ll find dishes that are fried, boiled, and boiling over. Some are marinated. Some are raw. There are a variety of seafoods—mackerel, sierra, wahoo, snapper, tuna, lobster—as well as chicken and steak; and the food is expertly executed with great technique under the guidance of experienced chef and Nick-San founder Angel Carbajal. Nick-San owners invite you to taste its menu not just once but many times. The surprises here never end, with dishes’ flavors, textures, and presentations. Celebrate your special occasions here. There’s a reason so many visitors come back time and again. Japanese cuisine is more than sushi, and the Nick-San experience can’t be relegated to just one visit.

Though we had planned on a more traditional dinner of sushi and Mexican-Japanese fusion, we ended up spending the night under the stars while live jazz music played and we enjoyed delicious creations from chef-owner Angel Carbajal and his team. For about a year, Nick-San and its Garden—a special garden area with the most charming ambience—have hosted several themed nights with live music. We started with a Champagne cocktail from the Champagne Bar at the Garden to get ourselves into the ambience. The chef sent an amuse bouche of whitefish sashimi served with truffle oil. And we continued with a jicama tartar made of sea bass, jicama, chasoba, and a refreshing citrus dressing. Try this dish with the house sauvignon blanc so you will be able to appreciate even more the fruity sides of the wine and of the dressing as well. We then continued with the Negi Roll, made with whitefish, crab, shrimp, thin caramelized onions, and a touch of truffle oil. One of our favorite dishes was the crab ravioli, a special dish currently available exclusively at the Palmilla location and consisting of delicious ravioli stuffed with softshell crab and shitake and served with a creamy yuzu sauce. This visit to Nick-San Palmilla was totally different from previous trips; the restaurant was completely remodeled by French architect Jacqueline Perrot, and there is now also a lovely Zen vibe in the Garden Lounge Bar as well as in the terrace facing the sea. Come for a visit and enjoy great service, unbelievable dishes, and a unique ambience, whether it’s for lunch, dinner, or for a special occasion. Jazz nights are every Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.–10:30 p.m. Area privativa Ap-15, Shop-
