No Comments | Tags: , ,

Located just 19 miles north of Monterey, California along Highway 1 is the boutique fishing town of Moss Landing.

It began in the mid-1800s as a wharf serving the many pioneers, fisherman and others who traversed the waterways in the area.

Although it has grown over the years, it has still maintained it’s quaint (the population is just over 200 denizens and it encompasses only .4 square miles) fishing village ambiance, offerings visitors an intimate experience at a handful of boutiques, stores, accommodations and restaurants.

While here be sure to enjoy an amazing meal at the Haute Enchilada Café and Gallery.

The chef and artist co-owners here have combined their talents and passion for food and culture into a vibrant, creative ambiance that focuses on innovative fresh dishes prepared with local organic produce and sustainable seafood, set against a gallery space backdrop of beautiful, original, local works of art. They call it “Palate to Palette.”

Think roasted chile pasilla battered and stuffed with zucchini squash, jack and cheddar cheese, drenched in their house made mole sauce and served on bed of roasted Nopal (cactus) and black bean salad.

Or, the Peruvian Bird’s Nest – two eggs sunny side up nested on layers of saffron infused potato, red beet infused potato, a tempenade of green olives, Kalamata olives, capers, onion and fresh lemon, topped with Hollandaise sauce, crumbled no nitrate bacon and dusted with smoked paprika.

And then there’s the garlic prawns perched on medallions of beer battered deep fried eggplant, topped with Huitlacoche (black corn truffle) and dressed with chipotle aioli and Spanish rice or quinoa. Need one say more?

They also have a special event space featuring live music several nights a week. The experience here is phenomenal and not to be missed.
