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.
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!
