Authentic Mexican in Acapulco
My folks will be in Acapulco for one night later this month prior to boarding a cruise. While the cruise food is good it is not authentic mexican food. Does anyone know of a restaurant in Acapulco with real mexican food? They are staying at the Crowne Plaze at 123 Avenida Costera Miguel Aleman. Thanks.
Have your folks re-confirm their hotel rooms - because workers at Crowne Plaza went on strike last week - and given the slowness of the season (pre-Xmas), the strike could last for weeks, or more. Maybe have them develop a Plan B, for an alternate hotel - should the hotel booking folks tell them all is well, only to arrive and find out the place is shuttered.
Acapulco is full of authentic Mexican restaurants. It's a good food town, IMO. SuCasa is a good choice - good food and great view from the mountainside over the bay. One of my favorites is La Casa de Tere - popular with local residents and people in the know from Mexico City (and where you'll find me on Thursday - for pozole - when I'm visiting ACA). El Amigo Miguel, near Plaza Alvarez in the Zocalo section of the city (and close to the cruise ship terminal) is my favorite seafood spot.
I have hundreds of photos of Acapulco uploaded to online albums, and some of those are of the two restaurants I mention above: http://tinyurl.com/7tt2s
