Sabor De Baja Returns To Rosarito For 4th Year On August 31 | Dress In All White For This Incredible Cross-Border Food Festival

August 11, 2016

On Wednesday, August 31, from 5-9pm, diners dressed in white will converge on the ocean front gardens of Rosarito Beach Hotel for a Baja-style culinary celebration. Sponsored by popular Rosarito supper club Mi Casa Supper Club, Sabor de Baja is an annual “end of summer,” all-white attire event (one of our favorite and most delicious events of 2015) that always sells out in advance and features a culinary competition among 20 of Baja’s top chefs, a tasting of a variety of Baja delicacies, live entertainment, and samples of an array of the finest Mexican wines and area craft beer in a most beautiful setting

The intent of the Sabor de Baja is to promote gastronomy and tourism between the U.S. and Baja. Each attendee will be able to taste a pairing of the chefs creations together with the wine or beer producers. There are two main awards given that night - the first is decided by a panel of distinguished judges and the second is called the “People’s Choice” which is decided by popular voting from every attendee who submits a ballot. Judges for this year's Sabor de Baja include Diego Hernandez (Chef from World renown Corazon de Tierra), Claudia Sandoval (winner of Masterchef season 6), Chef Najat Kaanache - who has worked in many great restaurants (French Laundry, Alinea, Noma, El Bulli), and Erica Santana, who is a sommelier and is the bar association president in Tijuana.

Tickets to Sabor de Baja are $70 and include tasting of dishes, wines and beer, as well as a commemorative wine glass. Participating restaurants include Mi Casa Supper Club, El Cielo, Sanvil Ensenada, Caesar's Tijuana, Brasa de Valle, Malva, Finca Altozano, Mison 19, Corazon de Tierra (named one of the 50 best restaurants in the world) and many others. Tickets can be arranged and purchased by contacting [email protected].

Rosarito Beach Hotel is located about 45 minutes from downtown San Diego by car in what is a simple and beautiful drive. For more information, visit and check out scenes from last year's event in the video below.
