Ensenada- My heart and soul; is home.
Ensenada is where one of my permanent homes is, where all my favorite restaurants in the WORLD are, especially my brothers AMAZING restaurant “Il Massimo“- but most of all- this is where my beautiful, beautiful Mamma rests. She died about 3 years ago and we spread her ashes right in front of my house, in the beautiful Ocean of Ensenada. My heart grows full every time I go there and so does my belly.. there is so much foooood! See below for all my favorites.
From Vegas, it is a quick 5hr drive to San Diego and into the Mexican Border, straight to paradise! From Cali, it is even better- you just drive allllll the way down to paradise. For anyone coming from anywhere else- book your flight here to Tijuana and I will see you there!

Here is a small, beachy taste of my paradise..
Just when you thought too- “Oh, I won’t eat in Mexico” or “You don’t get sick?” or the best, “Do you drink the water?” is when I put a nice halt to all that. Yes, Yes, Yes, I eat and drink everything. You only live once, so if I am going to die from something I eat or drink, at least I will pass in paradise! In one of the photos, you can even see Valentina (my bestie) and I, even dug our own dinner out of the ocean!!! Spaghetti with Clams anyone? Count me in.
Here is a list of my 100% GO-TO restaurants if you ever find yourself down South:
FIRST AND FOREMOST; not because he is my brother, but Il Massimo Ensenada. Check out my next post that will give you all the details about it. Especially if you are on a Princess Cruise or a Carnival Cruise– this is a must!!

If you are of course looking for traditional and only Mexican, then you can’t go wrong with the choices below. Don’t get scared of the photos you may see either as I know, they look costly, but all these restaurants are so amazing because of just that. They are all so completely affordable and you will leave shocked that in “Mexico” you ate THAT well and paid THAT little. Trust me and let me know in the comments below!
Breakfast: I don’t normally eat breakfast, but when I do… it is at my one and only Pancake Republic inside of the Rosarito Hotel (in Rosarito). You HAVE HAVE HAVE to order the House Pancakes with the Mango Sauce- they’re very scary haha cuz they dump this sauce on it but OOOMMGG what I put in my mouth. I will let you eat them and tell me… Or I will go and have a beautiful Sunday Brunch at Hotel Coral & Marina– it is like $20 a person and words cannot describe what you will eat. Absolute perfection.
These, and many many more are my go to places. Stay tuned for more posts about Mexico- I will be returning very, very soon!!!
