Ensenada : Close to the Malecon : Gastropub Wendlandt and Ultramarino
Our host at La Villa de Valle recommended we try a new gastropub in Ensenada for dinner named Wendlandt. It’s only been open a few months. It combines good food (I only tried and can recommend the sliders, especially the short-rip slider) with good beer, some of which is brewed by the owner. They also bring in craft beers from throughout Baja California Norte and elsewhere (e.g., Stone in San Deigo County). There is quite a craft beer movement in Baja. The young woman sitting next to us emphasized this by sharing that she is a homebrewer. Glad to see a trend active in Los Angeles is equally, if not more active, over in Baja.
We also tried seafood dishes at UltraMarino. People rave about the oyster (ostiones) tacos which were quite good.
Either are great places for a casual dinner.
