Travelers all over the world know about the amazing beaches, picturesque natural scenery, and adventurous sportfishing in Los Cabos.
But, there is a new group of travelers coming to Los Cabos, and this article will provide just a “taste” of what they are finding.
Cabo For Foodies
Los Cabos is quickly becoming a resort destination for food lovers, also known as “foodies”. While it’s not the culinary capital of the world, Los Cabos will definitely provide foodies a real sense of traditional down-home style Mexican food with some of the freshest ingredients found anywhere.
It all starts with the sea. Los Cabos is definitely a seafood lovers paradise with plenty of fish and other creatures right from the ocean.
Every morning the fishermen leave Los Cabos and arrive back later in the day with their fresh catch. Restaurants right on the shore will cook up the freshly filled fish any way tourists like it. It doesn’t get much fresher than this catch, and the mind can wander about all the different ways to prepare the meal.
Travelers can even request the chefs at the Los Cabos seaside restaurants to cook up the fish their favorite way instead.
They will ask basic questions about things tourists like and dislike, as well as any dietary restrictions. Letting the local Los Cabos chefs be creative is the best way for foodies to enjoy a fantastic meal that the chef imagined for their guests.
Todos Santos Hits The Foodie Map
This town is traditionally known more as a surfer’s paradise than a foodie destination but don’t let the smell of surf wax distract you.
Travel about an hour away from Los Cabos and a tourist will find a sleeping gem of a foodie paradise in Todos Santos.
Sure, you have the traditional fare of roadside tacos, fresh seafood, and organic produce in Todos Santos that foodies are used to in Los Cabos. The real secret to Todos Santos’ foodie paradise is the international food surprise.
There are three non-traditional restaurants that have put Todos Santos on the foodie map. The first is the Italian restaurant Café Santa Fe. The second is the c’est magnifique French cuisine at Chez Laura. In the mood for Japanese? Check out Noah Japanese Food and Bar Mis Amores.
To top it all off, for dessert, don’t forget the coffee and sweet treats at Taller 17.
The Los Cabos Foodie Festival Scene
There are so many foodie festival events in Los Cabos that travelers could easily visit every month for a new festival adventure.
Coming up in April is the Festival of Flavors Culinary Weekend at Don Manuels organized by the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal.
Three Michelin-awarded chefs will create plates that showcase the finest ingredients and tastes of Mexico at this event, April 13-16. It is highlighted by Mexican Chef Carlos Gaytán who will share his inspiration for local flavors.
Another well known international foodie event takes place typically in November called Sabor a Cabo or Taste of Cabo in English. It’s a traditional “taste of” event like those in the United States with a more local flair.
At Sabor a Cabo, a typical attendance of 3000 visitors and 60 different chefs come together to highlight some of the best wine, food and of course tequila from the Los Cabos region.
A Los Cabos Foodie Adventure
Even if you come when a festival is not on the calendar in Los Cabos there are still some amazing restaurant open daily in Los Cabos resorts and surrounding areas.
According to Eater, there are a number of can’t-miss foodie highlights in and around Los Cabos, such as the El Farallon in the Waldorf Astoria, Los Tres Gallos for traditional Mexican cuisine, Manta for amazing beach views, and Flora Farms, where foodies can eat near the 150-acre ranch where the food came from.
