Baja Mexico Trip, Part Three

Ponzi Tuna and Chili Sauce Tuna
Sushi might seem unusual for Mexico, but it's now a Global cuisine and has found it's way down South too. Carlito's Place is a restaurant that truly defines the term "off the beaten path." It was found after driving through a maze of dusty back streets in the very small coastal fishing town of Pescadero. Carlito's came highly recommended, and we briefly questioned that as we drove up to the sparse open-air restaurant. After being seated quickly we passed on the menu and just said "send us your best" and they did.  It was a truly amazing fresh sushi and Asian-fusion style meal.
I recommend to bring your wallet filled with lots of Peso's, it's expensive and worth it.  After the meal Chef/Owner Carlos Cham sat down with us to chat about the restaurant and shared with us what seemed like a endless stream of assorted fruit margaritas. The town is about a hour North of Cabo San Lucas, just 15 minutes South of Todos Santos.
