Breakfast at The Pancake House and Our First Tortillería - Food Costs in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

in #food3 years ago

We've been exploring Puerto Vallarta for a couple of weeks now and are finding that a lot of restaurants are nearing the prices we were paying in the US, at least in the touristic areas.

In this video, we stop by The Pancake House for the 2nd time. It is the most affordable breakfast that we've found in Vallarta, so it's not representative of the prices you'll pay in general. See costs in the video below.

We've tried to spend lots of time wandering off the beaten path to discover those "hidden gems" that make each city so memorable. In Vallarta, wandering around involves climbing and descending steep roads, navigating uneven "sidewalks" with many stairs, and often times walking on rough cobblestone streets. Walking on these streets is no joke, one misstep and you might find yourself with a twisted ankle!


During one day while exploring the hills, roads, and (what we can hardly call) sidewalks, we stumbled upon something we found pretty amazing. A tortillaría (tortilla factory)! According to one of our YouTube subscribers, "eating just-made tortillas is a Mexican perk!"

Here was a little shop on the corner and inside was a massive machine spitting out a couple of hot, fresh tortillas every second! We wasted no time getting in line to snag some fresh-off-the-press corn tortillas. One taste of these warm, round pieces of heaven, and we can't believe we ever consumed Mission brand.

Also, you won't believe these prices!

Oh yeah, that's the first thing to do in any town is find the tortilleria!

Haha! It will probably be the first thing we do from now on too!

Good to see you are still enjoying your trip.

Did you see any local selling $5 to $10 sunglasses to tourist at a small shack or kiosk in any of all the cities you have been so far in Mexico?

We've seen tons of people selling sunglasses, but haven't asked any of them about prices.

very nice, but is a tortilla or a pancake

The ones in the beginning are pancakes and they are tortillas at the end. :)

such a nice place to visit.

great post broooo

nice that you take the time to walk around and find different places than just the usual spots :D have fun!

Thanks! We much prefer to find those “hidden gems” over anything on TripAdvisor most times. They tend to be more authentic, tasty, and sooo much less expensive.
