Tweaking Mexican Classics in Todos Santos

We were all aching for pure Mexican food after several solid but unspectacular, globally inspired meals, and based on the premise of La Casita, we were expecting more of the same, but Mazatlan native Sergio Rivera, who traveled the world as a yacht-based private chef, won us over with his treatment of Mexican classics. He spent hours in the open kitchen and started by packing enchiladas with plump shrimp, scallops and sea bass, presented smoked marlin rellenos two ways, and even set our third course on fire, igniting Cointreau, tequila and Grand Marnier soak shrimp. I’m not sure if it boosted the flavor or not, but it sure was dramatic. Apparently Rivera didn’t want marlin to carry the day, so he presented pan-fried grouper a whopping three different ways, highlighted by mango ginger jalapeno sauce. The ribeye sported a winning sear, but was cooked well beyond my desired medium rare. Far better was the slow-cooked baby back ribs, lacquered with tangy chipotle raspberry molasses BBQ sauce. None of us claimed room for dessert, but we somehow found the strength to devour rich chocolate truffles, flan and bread pudding.

Unreal food. I keep trying to explain to friends at home that this is not like any Mexican food they can imagine...instead, it's just incredible food with crisp flavours, snapping textures and fabulous combinations that happens to be in Mexico, using locally-sourced and oh-so-fresh Mexican ingredients.

Don't even get me started on the seafood.

Oh my, my, my...

Wow, we are so lucky to be able to drop in at Sergio's place and get the freshest seafood just caught that day and then he does his magic.

I have traveled all over the world and lived around the ocean in many places and Sergio is doing fantastic job creating sushi and sashimi dishes that will please your taste buds.

In Hawaii we have a saying the " Food was so good it broke da mouth"

He made up some Yelow Fin Tuna rolls with several different toppings and sashimi for me the other night and it was so good I ordered a second round.

I love Sergios place because I can always just say " You decide" and he will take care of the rest. He has Tapas style plates that are portioned for the # of people at your table and priced accordingly. He let's you taste his wines and then decide which one you want to order. If you have a particular direction or dish you want just throw it out to him and let him create. It is so nice not to have to struggle through a menu and all the choices. I just feel much more stress free when an expert is taking care of it and I can move on to socializing with my friends.

I see he has opened his Sushi Bar and am excited to have that as an option now. I am sure I will see a lot of locals in that informal bar setting. Yiiipppeee!
