Boules in Ensenada


Outstanding casual/fine spot away from the tourist area and supported by locals. Ala cart or family style, your choice. Farm/sea to fork vibe.
Kinda open air, owner is a hoot, lots of laughter, the warm smell of colitas wafting from the open-air kitchen may have had something to do with that. Nice local wine list from small producers - no L.A. Cetto and similar allowed.
Good time had by all.

Thanks Santiago, Boule is on my list to try next time. Are there any hotels near Boule that we could walk to for dinner?

I was going to email Boule and ask but you came out in time. They do have a bocci ball space in the backyard somewhere for those that would like to play between servings. I do not play but will check it out.

Good to hear they are still in operation. loved their food- hope they are still serving the risotto.

When they had their restaurant in San Miguel the owners used my front porch for storage, and set up the bocci court out back. Best neighbors when it came to wine, food & bocci.

One way or the other, I will be stopping by at Boules for dinner on a Wed. three weeks or so, later this month.

I am still hoping for a suggestion on where to stay for the night that is a convenient walk to Boules.

I will be making a reservation at Boules as soon as I can find a place to stay for that Wed. night for my lady friend and I. Any suggestions from those in the know?

This is and can be Nomad at its finest. Apolitical positions have a value and should be a priority to all of us Baja lovers.

I originally came here for the Baja love we all share.

I have had a few longtime Nomad friends who have had to bow out for their own reasons to preserve some sense of reality that a few regurgitate here regularly without consequence.

My rant for the week can hopefully exert some positive influence on what is considered off topic.

As all public forums have her trolls, we do too.

Peace, an eternal love for Baja, and fish tacos, the salt of the earth locals, is a mantra we can surely unite upon.

I believe that Casa Adelina Hotel is is your best bet, just a couple of blocks away...

Colitas (little tails) may refer to:

In English from Spanish it translates as "little tails" and in slang it refers to the tips of marijuana leaves, said to be the most potent part of the plant.
A slang term in Hispanic culture for the buttocks
A slang term in Mexico for the buds of the cannabis plant

One of our party had the steak and started having one of those "I'll have what she's having" moments. She cut us each a small piece and it made us all wish we had ordered it.
