Meet The Chef
Born and raised in Morocco, Bo Bendana fell in love with Baja on a visit to Rosarito in 2006. Like many women in Morocco, Bo learned from an early age, the secrets of family recipes that had been handed down for generations. Her grandfather also worked his whole life for a well-known restaurant in Casablanca, so you could say Bo had cooking in her blood.
Seeing a gap in Rosarito for high end dining, Chef Bo started an underground supper club for local (expats as well as Mexican) food and wine lovers. A membership only dinner club emerged as one of the most talked about experiences in Baja and within 18 months, Mi Casa Supper Club outgrew its original location. Her twice a month, 7-8 course chef’s dinners, merged Moroccan and Mexican cuisine in a fusion that Bo coined "Moroxican”.
In July 2014 Chef Bo completed construction on her new restaurant in the Ocean front community of San Antonio Del Mar in the Rosarito/Tijuana area for members and non-members alike so that everyone could sample her cuisine every weekend.
Bo attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York city and worked for a decade as a successful Interior Designer in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills before becoming a chef, so when the time came to build her dream restaurant, she used all her knowledge and experience to create an escape for guests who seek something elegant yet eclectic. Mi Casa Supper Club has quickly established itself as one the finest dining destinations in Baja. The cooking is restrained, seasonal and thoughtful but also imaginative, earning Mi Casa an increasingly feted reputation and a listing in the upcoming Fordor’s travel book for Baja in 2015.
The modest à la carte menu takes in a variety of international influences, while remaining grounded in Mexican ingredients and Moroccan culinary traditions. Highlights include the Mi Casa Supper Club signature slow cooked lamb with spiced prune based mole and Saffron Gnocchi and the Ras El Hanout (Moroccan spices) crusted Tuna with Black Farfalle Pasta, Sage brown butter and Turmeric Chèvre.
