|Savory September Specials in Vallarta|
September 05, 2009
Every September, know as El Mes de la Patria (The Month of Our Nation,) cities throughout Mexico host a series of colorful and patriotic festivities celebrating the events and people that eventually resulted in Mexico's Independence from Spain.
Food is always a very important part of Mexican festivities, so during the month of September, some of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta will be serving up traditional Mexican dishes, events and special menus to commemorate Las Fiestas Patrias. Here are just a few of the Puerto Vallarta restaurants where you can celebrate with an authentic Mexican dinner.
Olas Altas #380-B, South Side
During September, Chef Andreas Rupprechter of Cafe Maximilian will be offering Traditional Mexican Dishes in addition to the Austrian delights featured on his restaurant's regular menu. Don't miss his special Chiles en Nogada, the Mexican dish that is most emblematic of the holiday.
A specialty of Puebla, Chiles en Nogada are not your everyday chiles rellenos. Made from red, white and green ingredients to symbolize the colors of the Mexican flag, they are roasted chiles poblanos stuffed with a sweet-savory pork and fruit picadillo filling and served at room temperature with a delicate fresh walnut cream sauce topped with pomegranate seeds.
