Bienvenido loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they once again explore Puerto Vallarta’s vast hospitality scene. Buen provecho!
Right away I am compelled to tell co-owner Claudia that the google map on the coupon puts her restaurante east of Av Francisco Villa when in actuality it is west, about a block and a half beyond Costco. She is aware of that and I find that if I had read the directional instructions on the coupon, we wouldn’t have gotten in such a good walk.
The chefs: Yadira, who is the chicken expert, and Bruno, also from Peru, is the master of the seafood. Claudia explains to us that the chicken is marinated for 24 hours in special spices and vegetables, then slowly roasted on a rotisserie over a charcoal and wood fueled fire.
While we are waiting for our chicken dinners we are drawn to this awesome photo of Machu Picchu.
Our food, 1/4 chicks with salad and fries, has arrived. The three wonderful salsas are: aji amarillo, made with a Peruvian yellow pepper, a dressing for our salads and a sauce with a hint of huacatay, a popular Peruvian black mint that is commonly served with rotisserie chicken. La Cabaña Azul has a wide array of soft drink choices but for us beer drinkers there are only ponies of Corona for 25P each.
But wait there’s more! Just as we’re leaving, an order of chicken brochetas and mollejitas de pollo, chicken gizzards comes out of the kitchen so I just have to take this pic, I mean who doesn’t love chicken gizzards, eh?
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. The thing that Bruce and Mary really love about Cupocity is that it takes them to places that they have never heard of and would never have visited but for the coupons. Keep up the good work, Cupocity! Hasta proximo Domingo!
