DINING - Miguel´s

Miguel's In Todos Santos is Always Friendly . . . Best Chile Rellenos Baja!
by Stockton Hill

Miguel's is a rustic, classic open-patio restaurant covered by thatch and walled with palo de arco, thin sticks commonly used in fencing and gates throughout Baja. The ceiling is decorated with surf boards, and the floor with sand, giving it a beach feel in town.

A very good Mexican menu is offered at Miguel's Restaurant with all the traditional classics like chiles rellenos, and seafood featuring fresh catch of the day, fish tacos, soft drinks, and cold cerveza and margaritas.

The specialty of the house is the chiles rellenos and they are very good, indeed. The New York Times says their chiles rellenos are "the best anywhere." The use fresh poblano peppers, roasted, seeded and stuffed with cheese, not just any cheese, but Queso Asadero, mild, chewy cheese traditionally used for filling chiles rellenos.

Service is good and friendly and the staff are always cheerful and happy to see you. Miguel himself will greet you like you're a longtime friend, which is why Miguel's Restaurant is a favorite spot for locals, visitors and surfers alike.

They are located at the corner of Degollado and Rangel, across from the Pemex Station. Miguel's is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Closed Sundays), and cater parties, large or small. Call ahead for "To-Go" orders: 145-0733.

For the best Mexican breakfast in town, Miguel’s is hard to beat.
