The following is an excerpt form Best Places - Baja A fairly recent addition to the dining scene in San José, El Chilar is a small but very popular eatery, with two talented and ambitious chefs who often push each other into creative fits. Casiano Reyes and Armando Montaño, both from Oaxaca, love to formulate the menu, which changes monthly. Using full-flavored chilies as a focal point, they have captured the attention of the local gringo community, which packs a full house during peak dinner hours.

Their variety of starters might include a salad of fresh greens with an apricot chipotle vinaigrette, followed by entrees like thinly sliced flank steak marinated with a nutty cascabel chile sauce, or a succulent chicken breast with almond and chile guajillo sauce. Paintings by local artist Dana Lieb of Pez Gordo adorn the walls and the cozy cement quarters can get a bit loud when large groups are present, but overall the food and atmosphere are worth experiencing.
