Fodor’s Expert Review
Due to the talent and creativity of chefs Uziel Leaño and Luis González, El Tupé has become one of the darlings of the La Paz dining scene. They dish up exquisitely prepared and presented regional favorites in unexpected ways: Serving vessels often include abalone and chocolate clam shells, or cross-sections of indigenous trees. They conceived of El Tupé during backpacking trips. The two Sudcalifornianos were so impressed with some of the traditional dishes they found in their native state's less traveled areas, they decided to open a restaurant to showcase the region's unique flavors and signature culinary style. Six- and twelve-course menus change daily to take advantage of the freshest local, organic ingredients. Seatings for both are at 6 pm daily and include excellent pairing options from Baja's wine country, Valle de Guadalupe.
