Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The mere mention of Italian food conjures up very specific images, dishes and aromas. While the stereotypical Italian restaurant in America and pretty much any country outside of Italy, usually serves up plates of hot pasta with tomato or cream-based sauces or a big slice of pizza, this is far from true Italian cuisine, which encompasses a wide variety of cooking styles, flavors and tastes.
The differences in Italian cooking really shows up between the northern and southern parts of the country. Each region has its own traditions that reflect the deep history and culture of that area, but to get a taste of it all, you'll have to do a lot of traveling.
Unless you happen to be in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where, through May 14th, you can sample a wide variety of Italian dishes on the Special Menu at Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant on Playa de Los Muertos.
Executive Chef, Ignacio Uribe, Chef de Cuisine, Hugo Mejia and Sous Chef Rogelio Garcia have come up with some great dishes. This is an a la carte menu and dinner is served from 5 to 11 pm. The regular a la carte menu is also available.
