Mazatlan Food

It’s not all tacos and nacho for us while on vacation. Mazatlan is known for their tomatoes, other fresh vegetables, and the food in general is really amazing!

Wednesday: Angelos, in the golden zone, Italian food. I had the chicken penne and it was really good. In the past I’ve had the bananas flamed for desSert which steals the show!

Appetizer from Waters Edge Wine Bistro Mazatlan MexicoThis appetizer was amazing, zucchini on one side, plantain on the other, and I think it was some kind of pork in the middle?  I wish I remember what it was called.

Friday: We decided to go up to the Hotel Freeman for a drink before dinner. I’m not sure why it wasn’t packed, this had the best views of the city!

Dinner was at El Persidio, I had their steak special which came with a chipotle bernasie sauce. At first I was worried they didn’t have a steak knife. Turns out their steak is so tender that the butter knife did just fine!

Saturday: Panchos, we had a drink at the bar so we could score a better table.

This is a typical tourist restaurant, but their shrimp 2+2+2 (garlic, battered, bacon wrapped) keeps me coming back. I love getting to try the three variations while only ordering one meal.

Honorable Mentions: Topolo, we didn’t go this year, but I wish we had so I could have another watermelon margarita!

Casaloma. This one is tucked into a neighborhood and if you don’t know about it, you won’t find it on your own. My favorite parts of the meal are the Cesar salad created tableside, and the flaming coffee drinks for dessert.

Do you have favorite restaurants you return to on vacation? Or do you always try new things?


  1. I don’t think I have every been to the same place twice 🙂 But if I went back to someplace and there was a restaurant that I LOVED I’d eat there again…. otherwise I really like to try new things
