Inspired by the street food culture of Baja California, Sabores de Baja celebrates the iconic and unfussy cuisine of the Mexican peninsula and recreates an intimate evening out on the town in Baja. With welcome drinks in hand, guests stroll through a vibrant plaza of food stalls and shops before arriving at their table overlooking the lagoon. The menu at Sabores de Baja centers around the area’s most locally beloved ingredient, seafood, which is sourced sustainably from the waters off Ensenada and the Sea of Cortez. Featuring a selection of omakase, stir-fry and more, the menu marries Mexican ingredients and techniques with East Asian and Chinese flavors – a nod to the diverse culinary heritage and influence of migrant populations on the region.
As no evening in Baja is complete without a taste of the local libations, guests are offered a curated list of craft cocktails, locally brewed beer, Mexican sake, and of course, wine from one of the world’s oldest winemaking regions, Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe.
This interactive gin-making workshop is led by the only gin producer on the Yucatan peninsula, Roberto Brinkman, the proprietor behind Gin Katun. This special spirit is distilled using traditional methods but spotlights a variety of more than twenty botanicals native to the Yucatan, including Naranja Agria (sour orange), Chinalima (sweet lime), Mayan Oregano, and more. Learn how to distill Gin Katun in this curated workshop followed by a cocktail tasting.
