Arriving early evening, we walked up the staircase enveloped with evocative paintings leading us onto the grand palapa-covered first floor. We began by testing out some of their unique cocktails on the menu. The first drink of the night was an elegant rose-pink beverage served in a martini glass, topped with a smoke-filled bubble. The drink was served with a glacé cherry on a stick which was used to puncture the bubble and release a smokey cloud. This was quite…

This easy dish will wow your palate, and take you no more than a few minutes to throw together (not including prep time). Simply start by boiling or roasting beets, I like to purchase a variety of golden and regular beets at our local Sayulita Friday farmers market. I then like to prep seasoned olive oil, chop some garlic, and rosemary, add salt and pepper to taste, and saute for a few minutes until the garlic is golden brown. Using a thick greek unsweetened yogurt, spoon a generous amount onto the plate, lay sliced beets on top, and drizzle with…
