K38 Porters Neck

It all started at a famous surf break off the free road just north of ensenada, mexico.

A group of friends, a small shanty on the cliffs and the best fish tacos we'd ever had during our many travels south. The experience of those flavors embodied the essence of baja- fresh, savory & delicious. Since 1998, K 38 has been offering those flavors to you, using chiles & spices from all over the Southwest & Mexico.
