Pedro y Lola in Mazatlan

Mazatlan, Mexico

Every time you announce something, such as not liking formal restaurants and preferring smaller Mazatlan restaurants in less touristy areas, you are proven wrong.

Tonight is the Dia de la Musica, a big music festival in Mazatlan and we were taken to a restaurant facing out to Plazuela Machado.

Normally any open air table facing a plaza has me running, but I need to readjust my attitude.

EASY RECIPE: Chocobananos

Pedro y Lola isn’t catering to gringo’s preferences for burgers and fries and instead features Sinaloa’s regional cuisine.

There is no sikil pak as it’s not part of this region.

The restaurant is named after the couple Pedro Infante and Lola Beltran both accomplished vocalists from the city.

In celebration of the two the families gave the restaurant their favourite recipes, one for pork and one for shrimp.

While the city is known for its shrimp I could not help but try Pedro’s pork recipe.

And the shrimp wrapped with bacon and cheese aren’t too shabby either!

Disclosure: I was a guest of the Mexico Tourism Board but they did not request that I write a favourable review or drink more than a few different kinds of tequila.

      I had no idea you just gave up meat, oh the sacrifice!

  8. Camels & Chocolate says:

    Wait, you like bacon??? I wouldn’t have guessed. 😉

    1. Ayngelina Author says:

      I know! And here I thought they made it just for me – I guess I’m not the only one who loves bacon.

  9. I LOVE places like this that are owned by couples. Our fav place to eat in La Paz was because the couple running it were FANTASTIC.
