Mexican Cuisine and the Taco Festival

MariachiThe city of Ensenada  is preparing for a popular festival on April 15, 2012, featuring a wide range of exquisite Mexican cuisine including the main star, the taco. This important port city in Baja California is getting ready for the visit of Mexican and international visitors, who will be able to savor delicious Mexican specialty dishes and enjoy a fun-filled Sunday. The entertainment will include marimba, mariachis, music from the north of Mexico, and there will also be a diverse array of dances. The festival is going to be held in the Civic Square at noon, and entrance is free.

This display of different flavors has become a tradition over the last four years, and has been hosted by CANIRAC (the Restaurant and Food Industry Chamber of Commerce) in conjunction with 17 restaurants, bakers, and winemaking companies, all of whom are participants at the festival.

EnchiladasOn April 15, you will be able to savor a delicious variety of tacos such as the classic "pastor with pineapple" and a wonderful range of toppings including beef, pork chops, arrachera, carnitas, and more. You can accompany all of them with spicy salsas, which make the ideal complement to this worthy representative of Mexican cuisine.
