to Eat and Drink in Ensenada
The bell curve on dining in
Ensenada ranges from street vendors to exquisite French dishes
served in elegant dining rooms. Attire can range from shorts
to evening dress. Prices cannot be beat. Fresh fish
tacos at the fish market are up to a whooping 75˘ US and that
includes all the condiments you will need and radishes. They
are a tasty accompaniment to fish tacos and we now serve them
aboard. A refreshing treat on a hot day is a peeled mango or
a fruit cup from one the numerous street vendors. I tend to
stick with the ones that are set up in on place, not the
rovers. As far as tacos and and other cooked items, that's
up to you. Most everybody I know has eaten street stuff and survived.
But on the other hand, how often do they change the oil and how's
the refrigeration. Again, your call. A special treat
in most Mexican cities is rotisserie chicken cooked over mesquite
or other fragrant woods. Great for an evening out or to take
back to the boat for later meals. And reasonable.
Farther from the "tourist" areas, prices may go down but
the prices in the well-traveled areas are very reasonable.
At the higher end, one of our favorite spots for a special evening
is the awarded French restaurant, El Rey Sol. Pretty
Atmosphere, attention to detail, both in presentation and service,
and excellent food. For the two of us, dinner, including a
delicious appetizer-salad, the entree with fresh vegetable and
rice or potato dish, a drink for both of us and coffee came to
around $60. No, we didn't have wine the last time, but
Mexican wines have greatly improved and a very reasonable.
All in all, a great place. Coffee Houses are becoming the
popular place to gather and watch people stroll down the street,
both in the morning for that eye-opener and in the evening.
Many have outdoor seating. Another of our more casual
Tacos Del Sol!
