My dad and his wife have a home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we’re lucky enough to go visit from time to time. I always get my Mexican food fix while down there but I also indulge in all the fresh seafood. One of my favorites spots is Joe Jack’s Fish Shack. Chef Joe Jack moved from San Francisco (previous owner and chef of Luna Park…another old favorite of mine in SF) to PV and opened the Fish Shack in 2005 in hopes of showcasing traditional seafood (and Mexican comfort food) at the same time creating a great vibe. The best spot in house is on the exposed roof deck. You don’t have to worry about rain that often in PV which is nice.
My all time favorite dish (that I think about quite often) is the Whole Pacific Red Snapper. It’s covered with roasted chilies, garlic and lime and couldn’t be more tasty. I LOVE it!!! Their ceviche is also amazing…so fresh and full of flavor. Talking about it makes me want to fly down there just to have this:)
