"The Kitchen Between Vineyards and The Aromas of The Sea”
Mexico features 18 gastronomic routes, which cover 155 destinations in 32 states. In their scents and flavors, the 1,500 dishes and drinks found along these routes embody the culture and traditions of Mexico. Within the Baja California and Baja California Sur range is a route known as "the kitchen between vineyards and the aromas of the sea." In the northern part of the peninsula, the trip includes the municipalities of Mexicali, Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito and Ensenada. The journey offers a unique experience based on culture and the natural resources of the region.
In the state capital of Mexicali, Chinese food has been part of the cuisine for decades due to a strong Asian presence there. Tijuana, on the other hand, is famous for the "Caesar Salad" produced from romaine lettuce, hardboiled eggs, bread crumbs fried in oil, dried cheese, vinegar, sugar, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Rosarito Beach has taken advantage of the local marine resources to create one of the route’s most famous dishes, "Puerto Nuevo-Style Lobster," which is served with rice, beans and flour tortillas.Drinks and desserts are also abundant along the route, with the most popular drink being Tecate beer. The famous Tecate brewery shares the same name of the region where it was born.In Baja California, the locals have been baking sweet bread for decades. Visitors can try white and wheat breads, crackers, fine pastries, sandwiches and traditional donuts. Bakeries and mini-marts are on virtually every street corner in town.
As the largest city in Baja California, Ensenada offers dishes and drinks known for their unique seasonings and local ingredients. The gastronomy tour is from the Guadalupe Valley to Cedros Island, and it features traditional drinks and innovative styles of cooking.
