Rosarito steakhouse is a carnivore’s delight

A meal at El Nido is a trip back in time

The steaks at El Nido are still the main draw. The carne asada is justly famous, with the bacon-wrapped filet mignon perhaps a step behind.

Recipe: Lamb & Bison Meatballs with Tomato-Chipotle Sauce

Inspired by Tapas Picasso

In last week’s World Fare, I reviewed Tapas Picasso in Hillcrest.

I concluded that:We gave that pig no choice. In that cage, he was already meat. He just didn't know it quite yet. He was born to be meat. Given that reality, we owed it to him to make as little waste of his body as possible, to make use of every last bit of edible meat that we possibly could. Not just the fancy cuts—the celebrated ribs and the other parts with which we're all familiar—but the entire pig, from snout to tail. ...
