Tourists and locals will tell you over and over again that the only thing they really need is a good menu and a spectacular view.
Located at the majestic golf course of Puerta Cortes in La Paz, the newly opened Cardon welcomes you to a culinary experience that is full of flavors and aromas and situated right in front of the sea.
To create his menu, Executive Chef, Christian Morales, was inspired by the idea of “home cooking” but with a modern twist. The ingredients are basically from the sea in honor of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean, both of which are the heart of Baja California Sur. There’s also a delicious selection of wildfowl, as well as suckling pig, Alaska salmon and green mussels from New Zealand.
Cardon is fine dining at its best. The personalized experience is taken to the next level thanks to the signature cuisine that includes dishes such as crusted wildfowl with Morita pepper sauce and purslane, or a different approach using tiramisu. There’s also chocolate covered mascarpone with a coffee panna cotta. The winter menu offers dishes such as farm raised totoaba fish with a port sauce, spinach, walnuts and a wine reduction.
For the perfect pairing, we place ourselves in the hands of sommelier Marcos Flores Tlapan. Marcos is a member of the American Association of Sommeliers and has stocked Cardon with numerous labels from the Guadalupe Valley such as Casa Magoni and Pater, as well as international favorites such as Pingus and Opus One.
What makes Cardon different from other restaurants is a breakfast menu that features a wide range of dishes such as salmon and avocado on French bread. Christian emphasized how important it is to pamper diners with an extraordinary breakfast coupled with the finest service.
