Cabo San Lucas has long been one of Mexico’s favorite vacation and ex-pat destinations and lies along the shores of the Sea of Cortez,not far south of the U.S. state of California. Here,there are plenty of activities to enjoy,including some of the world’s finest golf courses,beaches,water sports and – of course – fabulous local cuisine.
The local and international food options in Cabo have plenty to offer,even for the most sophisticated palates,including everything from scrumptious street foods to the finest gourmet cuisine. The indigenous people of the region already had a wide variety of tasty culinary traditions that mixed over the years with foods that were introduced by missionaries,who taught the people how to grow wheat,corn,olives and vineyards to create new dishes characterized by exciting flavor combinations.
Today,the local cuisine relies heavily on the natural bounty that is pulled daily from the ocean. For example,Chocolata clams are exquisitely flavorful shellfish that are cooked in a stone bed with regional herb known as romerito,while the now world famous fish tacos that originated in Cabo San Lucas are second to none. Fresh shrimp,lobster,abalone,stingray,crab and many varieties of fish round out the area’s robust seafood options and are typically prepared with locally grown spices,including chilies,garlic,onion,salt and pepper.
Of course,tamales are also a local favorite and are typically prepared with chicken or pork that is mixed with a blend of olive oil,raisins and olives. In addition,the traditional dish known as Food for the Poor,or Comida de pobres in Spanish,is prepared using a combination of seafood stew,Mexican rice,beans and corn flour tortillas.
Many of the traditional dishes in Cabo are served with Clamato,which is a drink made from tomato and clam juice,or Damiana liqueur,which is prepared with a plant of the same name that is mixed with a combination of cane alcohol,water and sugar. Originally made by the local Guaycura Indians for consumption during special ceremonies,it is believed to promote relaxation and to act as a powerful aphrodisiac that also aids in digestion.
