Mouthwatering menus: new lunch dishes to try at El Faro

Chef Rafael Borbolla is cooking up some delicious new dishes for the lunch menu at El Faro so be sure to call in on your next visit.
Starters range from baked zucchini carpaccio and bruschetta topped with burrata cheese and drizzled with balsamic vinegar to Costa Alegre-style tuna tostada, Nayarit-style mixed ceviche, tiradito and salmon tataki. As an alternative, order a freshly made salad with a hint of Mexico, the Mediterranean or the Far East or a traditional Mexican soup.
You’ll find your favorite Angus beef burger on the menu, a tasty chicken focaccia or a seaman’s baguette for the hearty appetite. Of course, when in Mexico, a plate of shrimp, beef or pastor-style salmon tacos for lunch is always a good choice and a vegetarian filling of spinach, porcini mushroom and poblano chili is also available.
Are you in the mood for pasta? The menu selection includes linguine tutto mare with shrimp, octopus and scallops in white wine sauce or Ligurian-style spaghetti with zucchini, tomatoes, pine nuts, rocket, asparagus, white wine and a sprinkling of Emilgrana padano cheese.
New tasty main course dishes range from chicken parmesan and grilled Rib-eye steak with sliced potatoes with a hint of truffle oil to arrachera molcajete, a mortar filled with grilled skirt steak, chorizo and panela cheese, nopales and spring onions, served with salsa borracha chili sauce and guacamole so that you can make your own tacos. Stuffed Portobello mushroom and Teppanyaki vegetable stir fry with yellow curry sauce and coconut milk are delicious options for a vegetarian lunch. Or you can order the catch of the day, fresh local grilled fish marinated in achiote and served with mashed plantain, black bean sauce, fried tortilla and avocado. Chef Rafael’s grilled shrimp and octopus is seasoned with Cajun spices and paprika, sweet potato chips and sweet corn. And be sure to try the Ensenada mussels cooked with chili, onion, garlic, white wine and a dash of cream and served with rustic bread.
Buen provecho!
