Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico – Puerto Vallarta restaurateurs are already preparing to serve the hundreds of residents and visitors expected to attend the Thirteenth Edition of the Festival del Ceviche y Aguachile, which is set to take place from 12:00 to 8:00 pm on Sunday, February 5, 2023 at Puerto Mágico.
Everyone is invited to come out and discover the many different styles of two of the city’s most traditional dishes, Ceviche & Aguachile, at very reasonable prices.
A traditional Mexican dish, Ceviche is a concoction of fresh fish or shrimp “cooked” (marinated) in lime juice with tomatoes, onions and green chilies. But the Puerto Vallarta recipe is a little different than what you’ll typically find in other regions. In the Banderas Bay area, carrots, cucumber, cilantro, and other ingredients are often added to the mix.
The second traditional dish that participating restaurants will be offering is Aguachile. Similar to Ceviche, the most classic version is made with fresh raw shrimp, cucumber, red onion, lime juice, and chiles (typically serranos or jalapeños) that have been pulverized with some water – hence the name. It’s usually served with avocado and tostadas, along with beer and tequila.
During the festival, both specialties will be served on tostadas, and you can sample many different varieties, along with other seafood specialties prepared by local restaurants.
Join us to celebrate a new edition of this delicious festival that everyone loves and where you can enjoy new recipes and new restaurants as well as craft beer, cocktails with agave distillates, white wines, desserts and much more! Prices for tostadas and drinks range from 50 to 100 pesos.
Boasting a fully covered area to keep you out of the blazing sun, and all the facilities needed to spend a great day in the company of your family and friends, Puerto Mágico is the perfect place to celebrate this traditional festival.
Make plans now to come out to Puerto Mágico on Sunday, February 5, for the Thirteenth Festival del Ceviche y Aguachile. Admission and parking are free.
