Rosa Mexicano is back with another limited time menu. This time it is called the Flavors of Baja. The Baja menu is inspired by Waxman’s time spent in the seafood-laden peninsula of Baja California, Mexico. Flavors of Baja is available through-7/1. Rosa Mexicano invited me in to sample the menu. And no visit to Rosa would be complete without their guacamole prepared table side, right?
Miel de Toronja Herradura reposado tequila, Vida mezcal, honey, fresh grapefruit and lime. This cocktail is pictured above. If you haven’t had Mezcal before it has a strong smokey taste, so this cocktail isn’t for everyone.
Zucchini a la Parrilla Grilled zucchini, eggplant, onions, cherry tomatoes, epazote and cilantro pesto served with roasted chile cornbread. 9.50
This would make a perfect entree for a vegetarian. But as a meat eater, I thought it was quite delicious too. It reminds me of those seafood stacks they make with Ahi tuna or crab, but made with vegetables instead.
Tostada de Jaiba con Coco
Jumbo lump crab meat served on a crisp corn tortilla with mango, cucumber, scallions and pasilla chile. 10.50
These tostadas are topped with a ton of crab meat. I’m a total slut for just about any seafood. So, is it really any surprise that I ate all three of these tostadas by myself?
Out of the two main dishes, I enjoyed the rabbit more. This dish is served with a pasta and is quite large. Two people could easily share it. However, I’d have preferred a smaller portion with all rabbit, as I enjoy it more than plain ‘ol chicken.
I found the appetizers to be more tasty than the main dishes. Grab your vegetarian friend and head up to Rosa Mexicano. Start with the guacamole. Your friend can get the vegetarian stack with cornbread and you can enjoy the crab tostada. Once you bite into these delicious treats you’ll be glad you don’t have to share them. The Flavors of Baja runs through July 1st, so you only have a few weeks to catch it.
