Annual Pop-Up Restaurant Features Gourmet Mexican Cuisine, Premium Beverages, Live Music, Dancing & More at Puerto Vallarta Resort through April 2016
Mexico’s Velas Vallarta recently debuted its seasonal pop-up restaurant, Alejandra, showcasing gourmet Mexican and farm to table offerings, open now through April 2016 in Puerto Vallarta.
Executive Chef Jorge Sierra was inspired by the cuisine of the AAA Four Diamond Restaurant Frida at its sister Grand Velas Resorts in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit for Alejandra when designing the menu. Highlights include Chiles Mecos, sundried chipotle chilies cooked with brown sugar and stuffed with goat cheese, breaded, fried and served with a traditional Mexican charro beans sauce, and Xochimilco Salad, composed of Purslane greens, red and green tomatoes, radishes, yellow squash, tender corn, Panela cheese, organic flowers, black bean sauce, and cilantro oil.
Entrée options include a baked duck breast, served with crispy onions, lima beans, cress leaves, mashed potato and pumpkin seed pipián sauce, and a Short Rib braised with red wine and chocolate and served with miniature fruits and mashed cauliflower with turnip, crispy onions and parsley chlorophyll among others.
The standout dessert is a Caramel Candy, made in the style of Celaya, Guanajuato, with sweet burnt milk caramel and bitter chocolate, topped with lemon meringue, Cotija cheese and winter fresh berries.
The 120 seat restaurant features indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the lush garden courtyard and is open Monday to Saturday from 6:00 pm – 10:30 pm. Live music and dancing are available nightly.
Velas Vallarta is an all-inclusive family resort located on 10 acres of oceanfront with lush gardens in Puerto Vallarta, walking distance of Marina Vallarta Golf Course and just minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta.
