If I was asked to describe the quintessential Southern California restaurant experience, Cantina Mayahuel in San Diego would be high on my list. With a throwback bar, hundreds of mezcals and tequilas, great food, an attentive staff and a slightly off beat laid back owner, Cantina Mayahuel, named after the […]
Who knew over 20 years ago when Dave Miller first visited Mexico that it would become his adopted country.
Since that first visit, Dave has facilitated hundreds of groups traveling in Mexico. It takes a special person to be able to bridge the divide between the to cultures. Equally at home in the typical suburban three bedroom home in the United States or the small block home in a village in Mexico, Dave is that guy.
For the family who has never traveled in Mexico, to the person who is ready to venture off the typical tourist trail and explore something new, Dave Miller's Mexico brings a unique perspective. It is a perspective gleaned from years of travel and experiences that few will ever match.
Join him on his journey and experience Mexico as few have, step by step as he seeks to share the culture, the art, the food and the richest resource of all, the people of Mexico with you.
For most of America, a night out at your local Mexican food place starts with chips, salsa, a margarita and ends with cinnamon crisps for dessert. In between you’ll probably […]
I first went to Mexico in 1990. I had a horrible time. I remember coming home and thanking God that I would never have to return. And then I did… again, and again and again. Fast forward more than 25 years and if you add up all the miles I’ve […]

Nine months ago, Eloxochitlán, Oaxaca, a village where my foundation holds an annual medical clinic, erupted in violence. Two friends were killed, many others lost their homes, their cars and hope. This week, instead of being on my “normal” fall schedule and attending the Taste of Mexico in Los Angeles, […]
Each year the stars align and the result is a wonderful night of food, fun and delight as an assortment of the best chefs in Los Angeles combine to throw […]
Wine and cheese are two words usually associated with places like Napa Valley and France, not the dry dusty climes of Baja California. But that is exactly where I was […]
I first became aware of this mezcal through Eduardo Belaunzarán of Wahaka Mezcal. We asked Eduardo, who also writes Mezcaleando, if he would give us his list of 5 Mezcals You Have to Experience and Jarabe de Pico was on this list. Fast forward a few weeks and as I was […]
I’ve worked in San Baltazar Guelavila for years and recently had the opportunity to visit Maestro Mezcalero Gregorio Martinez at his palenque. Gregorio is the man behind El Jolgorio’s Tobalá. Considered nobility in the world of mezcal, the tobalá is known by many as the “King of the Magueys”. We […]
