Baja shellfish at Popotla Beach
This Sunday, the annual Festival de las Conchas y Vinos Nuevos
, or Shellfish and New Wines Festival,
at the sea terrace alongside the Hotel Coral y Marina in Ensenada will feature the finest seafood purveyors of a variety of wild and cultivated oysters, geoducks, sea urchin, chocolatas
, blood clams, abalone, pismo
clams, pen shell clams, San Felipe white clams and more. 35 of the regions best restaurants plus guest chefs like Toluca's Pablo Salas (Amaranta
) and State of Mexico's Arturo Fernandez (Raiz
) will prepare dishes featuring the bounty of shellfish paired with Baja wineries serving crisp whites, roses, and other seafood friendly wines. All this for $400.00 MXP (around $30) for the ultimate Baja seafood extravaganza, but get there early, because Mexican food events run out of food quickly--I'll be lined up at 11 AM like them fools waiting for a ramen burger.
