A Great Taco – Inspired by San Felipe!

Look familiar?

If you live in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah or Colorado, you may have had a little taste of San Felipe without even knowing it. The Rubio’s restaurant chain, was inspired by a San Felipe taco, literally. The chain’s founder, Ralph Rubio visited our seaside town back in 1974, when he was a student at San Diego State, and made the fantastic choice of San Felipe as a spring break getaway.A Great Taco – Inspired by San Felipe!

It was here that he picked up a fresh-from-the-Sea-of-Cortez fish taco, en-robed in a soft, warm tortilla and adorned with fresh salsa, lime juice, mayo and crisp cabbage, took a bite out of it and found his life forever changed. That may be a little dramatic, but it’s true that he returned home with taco fever. On a later trip to San Felo, he made sure to pick up a recipe for a delicious taco de pescado, and the dream to open up a fish taco restaurant continued to grow. In 1983, he and his dad bought an old restaurant and the first Rubio’s Fish Tacos was born, bringing a taste of San Felipe to San Diego.

Nowadays, the chain has grown to a huge scale, and you may well have had your first fish taco at a Rubio’s. However, there’s still nothing like the original, so make sure that you order up a plate of fresh fish tacos at one of San Felipe’s many little taco stands or restaurants on your next visit!

Mercury and Cyanide Not Detected in Local Sea Water

Due to a recent wave of uninformed opinions about the alleged pollutants from the mine into our local sea water; San Felipe Salt Company added Mercury and Cyanide to their regular analysis request at the certified laboratory Midwest Laboratories.
 In the words of Bob MacDonald “The reason for adding those to the testing was only to verify that our products are not contaminated in any way.  San Felipe Salt is a Gourmet Sea Salt and distributed through out the world. Magnesium Oil PLUS is used by people as a mineral supplement and pain reliever, and the OSM products are used in agriculture as OMRI  – Certified Organic agricultural mineral supplements for crops and livestock.”

Please be patient; Kat’s Korner is down. However, “To The Nines Web Agency” has been actively working with the third party in charge of the issue (the company you see on Kat’s Korner) and they have promised us this morning, we will back up as soon as possible.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Lost Dog!

Ginny writes from Campo Delicias:

Dallas, my little 49 pound, 12 year old black dog (without tags on) ran away from our home in Campo Delicias, KM 33.5 yesterday (Monday 16 February) when someone set off fireworks.  She is somewhat deaf but her name is Dallas and her tail curls up a little.  She is dainty.  Please let me find her.  Ginny 619 206 1299

2014 Christmas Food Giveaway - San Felipe Lions Club


At our December 4 meeting, we were contemplating if we were going to do our Christmas food run or not. There was some concern with Cuchi being gone. With only 2 weeks to prepare, Adam Borja said he would do it.

Owner of Food store

Adam spent days driving around SF making maps, getting names, and checking out the overall situation for each family.


He made contact with Fruteria Tania’s Market (old Hipon) located in los Arcos. The owner Luis Pacheco sold us the bags of food at a discounted price, Each bag weighed about 35 to 40 lbs. They bagged all of the groceries and put a sign and bow on each bag.
