Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they, once again, explore the vast Puerto Vallarta hospitality scene. Provecho!
Mary is at the entrance to Mariscos Bella Mar at the intersection of Calles Madero y Serdan, just a couple doors down from the popular gringo hangout Que Pasa. We discovered this joint a couple weeks ago at the end of our river walk.
We’re done with our Friday afternoon workout at Power Fitness gym and back again for some post workout nutrition. I have chosen Filete Pescado al Ajo, fish filletÂ fried in lots of garlic. All components of this meal are muy delicioso!
Mary has a hankering for quesadillas. But, as this is a seafood place, the only menu offerings are shrimp or fish, so Mary challenges Alejandro to come up with a veggie quesadilla, which he does, awesomely, and… because it has only veggies and cheese he offers two for the price of one.
Cerveza! I am turning my cielo rojo into more of what we call a michelada as the major component of this remarkable house-made hot sauce is salsa ingletera, Worcestershire Sauce. This prompts an interesting conversation with Alejandro. Where we come from, Yucatan, a michelada is cervezaÂ mixed with Maggi, Worcestershire, lime juice,Â a dash of hot sauceÂ andÂ the glass is rimmed with salt. Here, in PV, a michelada is what we called a chelada in Yucatan, simply a healthy portion of lime juice mixed with theÂ cerveza and the glass rimmed with Tajin, a nice touch. Alejandro tells us that our version of a michelada is what he calls a cerveza salseado and he can do those as well. Chido, cool! Oh, BTW, a cielo rojo is cerveza, lime juice and clamato.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. If you have your own little out of the way places where the beer is cheap and the food is good, please share. Hasta proximo Domingo!
