Mexican Ceviche.

You can actually see the lemon and lime juice turning the color of the fish from translucent pink to opaque white when making any decent Mexican Ceviche recipe. The acid from the limes and lemons change the structure of the proteins in the fish, essentially “cooking” the fish without using heat.

The one place many of our visitors from Ensenada, Tijuana and Mexicali visit, is a little family run restaurant called, El Minuto.

El Minuto is known for its Caldo de Res; a delicious beef soup that comes served with rice. Many think is the best of its kind in all of San Felipe.


Our source says during The Season you will find many of our El Dorado Ranch owners at El Minuto on Thursdays eating Albondiga soup. They offer a menu that brings a new and original Mexican dish everyday. If you want truly home cooking this is the place and the kitchen door is always open.
