Here are links to the dining reports I posted here re: our dining out last April/May -- they were so enthusiastically received (not), I decided not to do the same after our recent 30+ day stay (December-early-January). I think we have done our thing at quite a few Mexican restaurants. Cheers!! http:...

Eat At Davids - comfort food, and more!

Eat At Davids (Aquiles Serdan 380) -- the sign says "American Comfort Food", but it's more, with two daily specials, plus a short menu, and everything priced so right. Eat At Davids was a new-to-us restaurant, tried for the first time during our recent December '11 stay. We dined there twice during ...

Magna Magna - fine Italian food in the south side!!

Magna Magna (Lazaro Cardenas 288) - Italian, Owner/Chef from Torino, Italy. Small, colourful, intimate place, with only six tables. Our last meal of recent Dec/Jan stay, and we were very happy to have chosen this restaurant, we much-enjoyed the food and our dining experience there. It's been a long ...

Try searching "chocolate-flavoured tequila" .... suspect that's what you had and enjoyed.
Can't help with what 'brand' it might have been, but I have had some flavoured tequila's at Cafe Roma (the restaurant/bar on Encino) that were great.
Cheers!

Planeta Vegetariano -- has it re-opened?

When we stopped by Planeta Vegetariano in May, we were surprised to find it closed. Inside stuff had been moved to one side of the place, and work was underway on the ceiling, and etc. Does anyone know if this fine little vegetarian restaurant was just being renovated, and is, or soon will be back i...

Margarita Grill is operating in the former Fajita Republic location ... is this restaurant really a "reincarnation" of the former Las Margaritas (which used to be directly across from Robeto's)? If so, imo, what a disappointment!!! With the recent expansion of the sidewalk on Basilio Badillo, those ...

Re: Getting to San Sabastian

How does one get to San Sabastian? Do you take a private tour, or organized tour? Do you fly or drive? I would love some information on how to get there and by what mode of transportation. Sounds like a great trip. I've been reluctant to reply to your post, as we did a road trip with friends, in a ...

jordan .... it's good to see that you want to use pesos during your stay - it's 'the' way to go!! If it's your wish to take/use currency (as opposed to using an ATM card, etc.), you will find it easy to convert Canadian currency to pesos (just remember, paper only, coins are not accepted, eh!!) at t...

Restaurant choices in San Sebastian.

kcowan .... couldn't agree more!! It's such a small place, but has so many "eateries" that look so welcoming and enticing to try!! Not sure what we would do with a re-visit -- there's only so much time, and so many choices!! Like you said - "what an amazing little town!" Do know, we would like exper...

Ann .... if you are referring to 'Las Margaritas', it's been gone for several years now. We dined there last in Nov/Dec '07 - then it was gone and the location empty when we returned the next spring. And the location was still empty when we were in town this past May. It's a great location, and Las ...

Heard in May, that Bistro Balsamar will be moving to the former Asaderos location on Basilio Badillo 223 - renovations of this location were in progress during our recent stay. The re-location should provide a higher-profile location, near to and adjacent some popular restaurants in the city's outh ...

San Sebastian

We did the drive (w/friends) from Puerto Vallarta this past May ('11), and much-enjoyed the mountain views along the way, and those within San Sebastian as well. Wow, those narrow, up & down, twisting & turning cobblestone streets in San Sebastian -- they were sure some fun!! After checking out sigh...

Our dining, April/May, 2011 - snacks & drinks - the end.

Evening after-dinner snacks. - D'Mike (Olas Altas, near the corner with Rodolfo Gomez) -- hot-dog stand. We have enjoyed D'Mike's hot-dogs for the past several years, and ended (and toasted) this last stay with a couple of them!! I call them "dessert", and they are great as such when dinner was earl...

Los Muertos to Linda Mar - via the beaches.

The daughter and I (57 and 71, respectively) beach-walked from Los Muertos beach to and through the several small cove beaches of Conchas Chinas, as far south as Lindo Mar and back, on four, separate mornings during the last two weeks of May (when she was down staying with us). We left our hotel in ...
