Laja

My husband said Laja was like the French Laundry of Baja California.

It’s an honest place for good food and wine in the heart of Baja’s Wine Country.
I spotted one sign for Laja off Highway 3, the main road looping thru Valle de Guadalupe.


It was a lovely spot for my birthday dinner. I was ready for another birthday weekend in Baja California after I celebrated the beginning of my 30s in Ensenada.



They offered a wine pairing with the prix fixe menu.


Soup and salad eased our bellies after a day of wine tasting. Crisp vegetables, savory sauces.


Ravioli stuffed with cheese.


Fresh shrimp and flowers dotted the risotto, one of my favorite dishes of the night.


Grilled sea bass.


I read about food stands specializing in quail in Baja California. I enjoyed Laja’s elegant version of this street food. I had no problem using my hands. I nibbled tender quail meat off the bone.

We closed out the restaurant with bread pudding, ice cream and a birthday candle.
