Dr. Taco

Dr. Taco has reopened next door to his old location. Yippee!! I can't wait to load up on shrimp tacos.





Closed - Petit Marrakesh in Calle Corazon.

The owner of petit m could be too intense for some. His lamb cous cous was dreadful too. Ta ta.

The George and Dragon has finally been laid to rest. It's been months and months since Zennon sadly died, I'm surprised it lasted that long.

Next door the italian pasta place closed and they've knocked down the coffee kiosk in front which always blocked the view of all previous restaurants that failed there. Now they're building a palapa extention from the restaurant which is an excellent idea.

Thanks Heather, wanted to be sure I had the right location with all of the talk of remodeling/relocating.
Is it still the same food and as good as always?

I ate there just the other evening. It was Saturday night at 8pm and I was the only person in there for at least 45 minutes. The old place had a lot more ambiance (and business) especially with the grill where people would sit and watch thier food being prepared and cooked. The new location (although right next to the old location) has lost something.

Are the pollo tacos fried too? I don't eat seafood at all, so need an alternative. But DH would love that salsa bar and shrimp tacos. Looks yummy! Interesting atmosphere...

Thank goodness Petit Merrakesh closed. We ate there last year and it still ranks as one of our worst all-time Playa eats experiences. It was awful!! And the owner /manager was pretty tough to take!!

Michele--I saw this on your blog. I checked the pic of the menu you posted but couldn't find the name. I would love to get these but don't know how to order them. The closest thing I could find was something called Chile Jalapenos at the top of the menu on the left. Would that be correct?? My God I am so hungry right now!!!

You can get them fried OR grilled (a la plancha)...our son has these frequently - but must be grilled not fried for him. Same with the shrimp or anything else - how you want it cooked is how they'll do it for you.
