Food in Los Barriles

So far we have been fairly disappointed with the cost and quality of the restaurants in LB. We found excellent coffee though, so we are surviving. There is also excellent produce and tortillas, so we’ve been enjoying a lot of delicious home cooked fajitas.

**update-there is a local company who will do your shopping in Cabo at Costco, Wal-Mart, etc and deliver to your door for 15% purchase price. It is definitely worth it, especially with COVID.

I’ve been wanting to check out the local saturday market and have been seeing pictures of items for sale such as pies, bagels, and sweets. Last night the COVID level was upped to 4, which shut the market down. I was so bummed! Then I remembered we are in Mexico, with Mexico “rules”, and soon enough a handful of local vendors had commited to basically selling their goods out of the back of their cars-SCORE!

First, we found the pie man-Emilio and purchased a slice of apple berry pie, and a ricotta, tomato quiche. Both were delicious, so yummy in fact that I don’t have pictures.

Next we found the bagel lady, where we bought four bagels, cream cheese, gluten free bread, and bagel chips.

On my way home I found one of the many local produce vendors and bought a bag of heirloom mini tomatoes and a bag of spinach for 90 pesos. There was also a sweet older man selling fresh squeezed orange juice-it was delicious. Our new favorite drink is fresh o.j. & topochico.

Oh, and how could I forget, the day before a local expat chef was selling yellow curry for 200 pesos per liter (enough for two people). It was so good, just the right amount of hot, ginger, and lemongrass.

I think we will survive here after all.
