Habaneros Restaurant - Creative Mexican Fusion, San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos
Long a best-kept secret by locals, Habeneros offers the diner gourmet Mexican fusion cuisine at affordable prices. The sidewalk bistro reminds one of a tourist’s fantasy come true where one wishes to find some small off-the-beaten-path place featuring outstanding, creative food at a bargain.
It’s not in Havana nor hidden on some quaint Mexican village side street, and despite being located in a Spanish styled bank plaza next to the Mayan Palace Golf course, Habeñeros is a diner’s dream-come-true.
You’ll dine casually under an arched Spanish esplanade with settings on woven tablecloths covering wooden tables, surrounded by palms, privacy screens and giant fans that push gentle breezes to your table.
The ambience is intimate, the waiters professional and attentive. The food is upscale, the prices downscale.
There are over a dozen tacos plates, burritos, Poblano chilies stuffed with Provolone cheese and 9 gourmet burger plates starting around six bucks on the lunch menu.
Dinner’s menu includes 15 appetizers and entrees ranging from lobster tacos, with spicy strawberry and mango sauces with Chipotle, to Tempura Tuna with honey sauce.
The Fettuccini Pomodoro with garlic bread comes in the door at under 9 bucks.
Filet mignon, pizza, shrimp and more are all presented with the creative flair of long-time Canadian ex-pat restaurant operator Tadd Chapman.
Desserts include Key Lime pie, Flan, Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake, and carrot cake. To complement your meal there are over ten coffee drinks, ten martinis, and a dozen house specialty drinks on the bar menu, along with over 25 wines from México, Australia, California, Chile, France, Spain, and South Africa.
You can have fun learning about and tasting tequila here Habeñeros was given the “Distintivo T” award by the Mexican Tequila Regulating Agency for their knowledge and support of the industry. A table loaded with famous tequila labels greets you at the restaurant entrance.
