The usual snack you will find in Mexico
At first sight the gastronomy in Cabo San Lucas in Baja California It can give us the feeling of being the usual culinary offer that we find in tourist areas dedicated to offering similar menus and high prices.
Although in some areas of the marina this sensation can become a reality, in Cabo San Lucas we will also find pearls that are worth discovering. Just go through some of the inner streets of the town, compare the cards offered in the restaurants of the port or also stroll along the beach of Máncora and discover new places. It is convenient to be attentive to prices in the menus since in some cases they appear in Mexican pesos and in others in US dollars. Both currencies use the dollar symbol ($) and can lead to confusion. As a curiosity it is convenient to know that the first to use this symbol were the Mexicans and the North Yankees assimilated it later.
Then I will propose a gastronomic walk through Cabo San Lucas through the restaurants we visited during our getaway in Baja California. As you can see we try to get out of the usual route and tourist areas and we prefer more for the locals inside the town.
The Gallery Restaurant
Boulevard Lazaro Cárdenas, Plaza Bonita L. 17
The first thing that surprised me when I arrived at this restaurant is the menu, in its physical conception. We were walking through the marina of San Lucas when suddenly a waiter approached us and opened the restaurant menu before us. Despite the low light in the marina we could read the letter perfectly. In a few seconds we discovered that the same letter enjoyed a special lighting that allowed its reading.
We did not have any special predilection to eat in the multiple restaurants of similar prices and menus in the area of the marina so we entered and tested the offer of La Galería. The usual dish that you will see in most restaurants in San Lucas is a combined lobster and steak whose price is around 250 Mexican pesos. The service at La Galería is friendly and fun, especially if you are Spanish and you can have a laugh with them while commenting on the curiosities of the most common American tourists in these lands.
