Maria Maria - Peace, Love, Light, Joy



Tegnap este unnepeltunk!:) Dora lanyunk nevnapjat - mivel egesz nyaron szanaszejjel volt a csalad igy azt is, hogy ujra egyutt. S ha mar unnep, legyen unnep -igy elmentunk Carlos Santana ettermebe a Maria Maria-ba.



San Diego-ban nincs hiany mexikoi ettermekbol, van koztuk sok jo, authentikus is,de ez a MariaMaria - hat ez nagyon tetszett!:) Nem a megszokott, agyonragozott taco-k es burrito-k babbal,rizzsel, hanem a mexikoi konyha egy kifinomultabb valtozata.
Rafinalt fuszerezes, friss izek.....a coconout ceviche maga egy csoda!:)

Az etterem dizanja is nagyon izleses,semmi nepischkedes, hanem mexikoi kortars muveszek alkotasai a dekoracio. Kozuluk talan a legismertebb Michael V. Rios, aki sok lemezboritot is tervezett Santananak.




Munkai itt megtekinthetoek.
Egyetlen, ami kicsit zavart az etteremben, hogy bar allitolag legtobbszor elo latin zene szol, most sajnos csak kommersz popzene dolt a hangszorokbol. Jobban orultunk volna Santana zenejenek,megha nem is eloben :)(Facebook-on lattam viszont, hogy szept.21 en Santana uj lemezbemutatoja lesz az etteremben....ugyhogy lehet visszatero vendegek leszunk!:))

We celebrated last night!:) It was our daughter’s – Dorina – name-day and since the family was scattered over two continents through the Summer we also celebrated being together again. And since it was a celebration we decided to go to Carlos Santana’s restaurant – Maria Maria.
There are scores of Mexican restaurants in San Diego and many of them is very good and authentic but this Maria Maria – was really great!:) It is not your twelve-a-dozen Mexican place with the plain tacos and burritos with beans and rice but a much more refined Mexican cuisine. Very refined spices, fresh flavors… the coconut ceviche was wonderful!:)
The design of the restaurant was very tasteful, not your run-of-the-mill Mexican décor; contemporary Mexican artists’ pieces everywhere. The most well-known is Michael V. Rios who designed many album sleeves for Santana whose works can be seen here. The only thing I did not like that although most of the time live Latin music is performed last night only commercial pop music from the can could be heard in the background. I would have much preferred Santana’s music… On the Facebook I just saw that a CD release party will be held to introduce Santana’s new album on September 21st … so perhaps we will be regulars!:)
