Featured Restaurant : Cenaduria El Tunel
Started by his grandmother 65 years ago, Gabino Urritia continues
the tradition of delicious Mexican food. Restaurant employees wake
up at 5:00 a.m. to shop the local markets to ensure the freshest
ingredients every day. Voted the Best Restaurant in Mazatlan by American
Express a few years ago, El Tunel has received many distiguished
honors and guests. Every single item on the menu comes highly recommended
by regulars, and I can honestly say they make the best guacamole
I've ever had! They are open from noon to midnight every day, but
you may have to wait for a seat at night, which speaks to this restaurant's
well-earned popularity. Very reasonably priced. Located on Avenue
Carnaval at the Plazuela Machado, across from the Teatro Angela Peralta.

*Afterwards, treat yourself to tea, coffee, or a selection from more
than 40 kinds of cake at Gabino's sister's upscale place, Memorial
Cafe, right next door!
- La Puntilla : Playa Sur
This open air restaurant hosts a breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner.
They offer a seemingly infinite selection of seafood dishes and
a green salad loaded with avacado. Kind of pricy, but some think
it's worth it for the ocean breeze, passing ships, and the view
of Stone Island. After your meal, you can visit the statue of
the Virgin of la Puntilla, located just across the parking lot.
At the beginning of each hurricane season, fishermen's wives
make offerings to her to protect their loved ones at sea.
- Dunia : Luis Zuniga and A. Serdan Streets
This cantina was very busy the afternoon I was there- jukebox playing
while the televisions showed a soccer game. Chickens ran past
as vendors offered wallets, DVDs, and shoeshines. They do serve
food, but the best part was the live music and $1 beers!
