Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - It is the largest celebration in the world. Mardi Gras is known for crazy parades, parties and wearing fun, colorful masks and costumes. It is called Mardi Gras mainly in France and the United States. The rest of the world calls it Carnival. The celebration originated in Italy during the mid 1100s and grew to immense proportions over the centuries.
This party of parties has survived even though some priests and rulers have canceled it when things got too out of control, but it would soon reappear even after being outlawed.
The party extends into the kitchen at Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant. Executive Chef Ignacio Uribe, Chef de Cuisine Hugo Mejia, and Sous Chef Rogelio Garcia have assembled a festive menu so you can sample Mardi Gras/Carnival style food without leaving Puerto Vallarta.
You can dig into this special a la carte menu through Tuesday the 13th and dinner is served from 5:00 to 11:00 pm.
