Cafe Bahia in Yelapa, Mexico was one of the first places we stopped by on our visit to Yelapa, a quaint fishing/tourist village about 45 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
francophile who was trained for 18 months in Paris, did 4 years in a high end restaurant in Manhattan, and 4 years in California at an equally established restaurant. Looking at her, she absolutely looked the part of high end Executive Chef complete with white cooking smock, clogs, haired tied up in bandanna but with one exception. A faded pair of patterned shorts which looked more fitting of the laid back Mexican cafe she was running.
Food – The food looked to be all inspired by local flavours, using natural organic ingredients. Some of it even appeared to be grown on the premises, the tied up baby leaf lettuce making the center piece of the outdoor patio. One dish particularly caught my eye, and that was the Yogi Bowl – an all green mix of jicama, (a slightly sweet turnip originating in Mexico) shredded carrots, fresh grown garden greens, and hand made tortillas.
Review: Upon further investigation into eateries in the town, it’s a pleasure to say that many of them were very good, but this restaurant seemed to be the best. You can easily check them out for upcoming specials on their facebook page. A quick glance at Trip Advisor gives a very similar rating, with nothing below a very good. Now how many places can say that!
