Puerto Vallarta is full of hidden treasures. I love to find new and great food at an affordable price. Below find some of my favorite places and best vendors in Puerto Vallarta to enjoy next time you are in El Centro.
On the corner of Ignacio Vallarta and Francisco Madero by the Oxxo is a great taco vendor. They have chicken, shrimp, and several kinds of beef. Beef is easy to find, but to get all these options is a find! Combined with a variety of condiments including salsas of every spice level, cheese, cilantro and my favorite grilled scallions make these tacos a must! They will always have specials, so be sure to ask. This is a great lunch, dinner or late night stop.
On Lazaro Cardenas and Insurgentes right outside of Farmacia Gudalajara is another great stand. They have huge quesadillas on freshly made tortillas, mounds of cheese and chicken or beef. One of my favorite things here is the spicy salsa, but beware it is HOT. All the toppings and condiments you could want will make his a one of a kind quesadilla. A great stop for dinner or a late night snack.
On the corner of Ignacio Vallarta and Francisco Madero you will find a very small stand that does tacos and a very yummy Mexican specialty called gringas. A gringa is two tortillas with pastor (slow cooked pork) and melted cheese in the middle. Add all the condiments you want and this is a treat! Open most evenings and Late nights and maybe sometimes during the day. Everyone should try a gringa here in Mexico so be sure to stop by.
Fish / Shrimp –
At the end of Francisco Madero on the beach is a great fish and shrimp place. Marlin, shrimp or both on a stick with their special sauce BBQéd right in front of you. Add salt or lime if you choose, I like it without and enjoy walking the malecon with your lunch. A great mid day snack or lunch.
On Cinco de Febrero and Constitucion you can find an amazing omelet. Enjoy with ham, veggies or chorizo with beans, veggies, jalapenos and tortillas on the side all for 30 pesos! Good food and a lot of it for a great price. Great breakfast stop to get you going in the morning.
On Caranza and Constitucion is a wonderful torta (sandwich)stop. You can choose from chicken, pork or cheese all the meats are pulled and perfectly cooked in broth making them moist and delicious. Add veggies and any toppings you like. Tortas here in Mexico are popular for breakfast as well as lunch so this is a great mid day stop. Enjoy a torta here with one of their great flavored watered and have a wonderful breakfast or lunch.
I hope you enjoy!
