Although food doesn’t normally look good with saturated colours, these dishes, with the late afternoon light on them, make me suddenly want to trip down to Mexico for an evening snack!
A box of refrescos de sabor limón, wrapped in plastic, with the sun shining through them. Canto del Mar, a beach bar in Puerto Vallarta, offered up three different types of ceviche. One ‘orden’ was 80 pesos, but between my horrible Spanish and our waiter’s horrible English, I had no idea what differentiated these ceviches, and was reluctant to order an entire ‘orden’ only to find out I didn’t like it.
Then I noticed that one could order one ‘tostada’ for a mere 18 pesos, and my Spanish really shone as I ordered, “una (point), y una (point), y una (point).” These are the three tostadas de ceviche: ‘pescado’ (fish, cilantro, lime, traditional); ‘acapulqueño’ (larger chunks of fish in a spicy, slightly sweet sauce) and marlin (smoked and tasty). They were all so good I could had an entire orden of each and been quite happy.
