On Thursday night, we went back to the city and walked the boardwalk again for another dinner with the family. We decided to eat at Daiquiri Dick’s because Paul read some positive reviews of the restaurant on chowhound. We actually passed the restaurant when we went to La Palapa but thought it was a touristy place so we passed on it.
The food was surprisingly good – Ken started with the tortilla soup:
And I had the cuban black bean soup:
We sat right by the beach and watched the sun set (this isn’t a great shot because there’s a big palm tree in the middle, but it was very breathtaking, I promise):
For my entree, I ordered the whole red snapper with Mexican rice:
The red snapper was very fresh and the meat was very tender – we squeezed a ton of lime juice onto the snapper and happily ate it with the Mexican rice and jicama salad.
The chef was actually an Asian woman that originally came from the United States (before that, she lived in Thailand). She said she was one of the first Asian chefs to go to Mexico and back then (30 years ago), it was really difficult to get Asian-inspired food in Mexico, but now it’s available everywhere!
The daiquiris were very good because they used fresh fruit and not syrup, like the resort, and we had another great meal in Puerto Vallarta.
