Normally, I expect a Mexican restaurant in a tourist area outside of the Southwest to pay little attention to true ethnic cooking. Tacos are ground beef in commercial shells and anything wrapped in a flour tortilla pays more homage to a salad in a wrap than it does to true Mexican preparation. Happily, Puerto Vallarta is the exact opposite! I knew I had a winner when most of the staff spoke Spanish and the extensive menu had many of the dishes I grew up with. My rellenos were perfectly prepared, the salsas were fresh and lively and each dish my companions ordered was met with true relish. Even the flan we enjoyed for dessert was fresh, firm and coated in a caramel sauce of exactly the correct viscosity.
I look forward to eating here again on my next trip to the Gig Harbor area!
