THE SPIRIT OF BAJA CALIFORNIA BROUGHT TO THE TABLES OF CAPE TOWN

Inspired by Baja California, Hacienda is a destination where guests  can experience a modern twist on authentic COASTAL MEXICAN cuisine. Paired with exclusively selected Tequilas and Mezcals from the Baja California peninsula region in Mexico. We offer a dining experience not to be found anywhere else in Cape Town.

MEXICAN, BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT

Come and experience guacamole made to order at your table. Tortillas are made fresh daily, and we nurture our live culture mole sauce for that extra punch in every delectable bite. Our meats and seafood are prepared on an authentic Mexican charcoal grill. Add all of this to your complimentary candy floss and you are in for an experience to remember.

SO WHAT IS BAJA EXACTLY?
Pronounced: B-AH-h-ah

Situated on the Northwestern coastline of Mexico, stretching south from the US border along the Pacific coast, lies Baja California. Best known for being the origin of the “Baja fish taco”, the Baja region of Mexico is also known for its endless coastlines and Mediterranean climate. With seafood being the main staple of the region, the area is very well suited to produce great meat, fresh fruit & vegetables, wine and olive oil. All of which is why Baja cuisine has gained a global reputation for being bright, fresh and very tasty.

WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF MEXICO?

Mexico is a diverse land with many different regions, each producing its own unique food and drink. We looked towards these regions to help us bring you the very best of authentic Mexican cuisine.

Tequila and Mezcal from the BAJÍO Region

The vast majority of tequilas are produced in this region. We curated a bespoke selection of tequilas and mezcals that are exclusively sourced for us. For the adventurous souls out there, we offer a carefully crafted tequila tasting flight, so that you can experience the true soul of Mexico.

Tortillas and Tacos from the Central Region

Best known for authentic Mexican street food, it is also known as the origin of the Tortilla, the cornerstone of Mesoamerican cuisine. At Hacienda we produce three varieties of Masa Flour Tortillas and tacos all of which are freshly made by hand daily.

Mole from Oxaxaca 

This region is considered by many to be the gastronomic capital of Mexico. It is best known for its sauce called Mole (pronounced MOH-lay). Mole is a complex sauce with as many as 30 individual ingredients prepped in different ways. Mole is alive, similar to a motherdough starter for sourdough bread. The sauce is kept alive by feeding it each day allowing its flavor to change as it ages. There is never a dull day if you have Mole.
