Encanto Farm & Sea debuts this month as a new coastal restaurant concept from Mexican hospitality brand Velas Resorts. Located at Mar del Cabo, halfway between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, culinary delights from executive chef Mario Rueda that showcase local and fresh flavors of Baja California are complemented by a unique seaside chic ambiance less than 50 yards from the ocean’s edge. With the sustainability of the ecological, social, cultural, and economic environment forefront, over 90% of the ingredients for the restaurant come from nearby fruit and vegetable orchards, ranches, and producers.
Highlights of the menu include Local Corn Velouté, made with roasted corn, epazote, cotija cheese, and chili oil; Miraflores Vegetable Salad, basil-hummus served with pickled organic vegetables from the “Tiki-farm” and fresh cheese from “El Carrizal”; Baja Mussels in Coconut Curry; Buttermilk Pancakes, topped with home-made jams; Local Sea Bass Ceviche, served with organic beets, citrus, jalapeño pepper, and sweet potato chips; and Grilled Chocolate Clams, topped with Gruyere cheese, white wine, citrus butter, and charred lemon.
In addition to a variety of tequilas and other Mexican spirits, mocktails and traditional cocktails, a new mezcalita menu features unique flavors like basil, habanero pineapple and the indigenous Damiana. Additionally, a version of the trendy Aperol Spritz is served.
The aromas, colors and authentic flavors showcased in the organic cuisine are only matched by the setting. Tables of mosaiced Mexican tiles are spread across a seaside terrace framed by whimsical granite rock formations and the Sea of Cortez.
Encanto Farm & Sea is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
About Mar del Cabo:
Located midway between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, Mar del Cabo debuted on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula in December 2018. Mar del Cabo is a stylish adaptation of the classic boutique hotel, designed to captivate and comfort with its space of unassuming and pleasing minimalism. Created as a white canvas with touches of color and chic design, it is the deep blue of the Sea of Cortez and the golden beaches that add tone, depth and natural accents. All 46 one- and two-bedroom suites and two penthouses have a king or two queen size beds, kitchenette with coffee maker and microwave oven, terrace with sitting area, separate living area with sofa, bathroom width step-in rain shower, and daily turndown service. Encanto Farm & Sea showcases local and fresh flavors of Baja California in a unique seaside chic ambiance less than 50 yards from the ocean’s edge. With the sustainability of the ecological, social, cultural, and economic environment forefront, over 90% of the ingredients for the restaurant come from nearby fruit and vegetable orchards, ranches, and producers. Two bars, spa services, sleek and sensual ocean-front pool, as well as outdoor spaces to hold private events complete Mar del Cabo.
