El Oasis

A couple of days ago Ross and I went to the restaurant El Oasis for lunch. The place had been recommended to us by Dale, an American who is building houses and a life in Mexico where he can surf, play the guitar and be out of Bush-America.
The food at the Oasis was excellent. Shrimp ceviche, guacamole, salsa, tortillas with brown beans and the most delicious huachinango, the popular local fish reminding of a red snapper. Fried in olive oil with garlic and tasting heavenly. Mexican kitchen at its best. So - look to the left when you are driving on the new highway out of Sayulita towards Punta de Mita. There is no town or anything around, just some tables under a palm tree roof, a hammock, a guitar, a sombrero and the wooden tool the owner’s mother used for making tortillas. Behind a modest sign saying El Oasis you will find a gourmet oasis.
