La Casa de La Langosta: Gastronomic Tradition at Puerto NuevoThe “Puerto Nuevo Style” lobster has given Rosarito a special place in the gastronomic scenario due to the peculiar sides it's served with red rice, beans, butter and huge sized flour tortillas known as “sobaqueras”. In recent days, through social media, you could see posts of Hollywood actor, Mel Gibson eating this luscious dish.
Story says that many years ago, fishermen got a whole lot of lobsters daily and american tourists could eat them right there. Having that many people on site, the wives of these fishermen opened their homes to them and prepared the lobsters right in their kitchens. That is how the legendary “Puerto Nuevo Style” lobster came to be what we know today, getting so many tourists from all over the world.
In recent days, one of Puerto Nuevo restaurants “La Casa de la Langosta”, with its legendary and gastronomic tradition, got a special award during the 30th edition of the “Premio al Mérito Empresarial Restaurantero”. With two restaurants, in Puerto Nuevo and The Park in Tijuana, we chatted with them on how to prepare and eat this dish correctly.
- Add the lobster right in the center of the flour tortilla..
- Add plenty of beans and rice on top.
- Add some drops of lime juice and choose from one of their spicy homemade salsas.
- Close the tortilla “burrito style”.
- Dip it into the butter.
