NO WAY JOSE! - Puerto Vallarta

No Way José! is located on the edge of Zona Romatica area on 5 de Febrero (first street to the left after crossing over the Rio Cuale from el centro). This area of Vallarta is the older, charming Puerto Vallarta.  Zona Romantica is Vallarta's most energized neighborhood with the south side beach, restaurants, bars, lounges and beach side cafes.  The menu features contemporary Mexican cuisine with the freshest ingredients bursting with flavor and fine dining quality.  This is one of my favorites in Vallarta, so naturally I was excited to hear they would begin a breakfast service during this trip.

I wanted to be table 1 on day 1 of their new breakfast service, but I was 5 minutes too late. I was table 2.

I begin with a bottomless cup of dark roast coffee and a basket of the flakiest biscuits, butter and strawberry preserves.  Yumm!

For breakfast I chose a favorite Machaca.  Machaca is dish prepared most commonly from dried, spiced beef.  It is then re-hydrated, pounded and shredded to make it tender.  The beef was combined with eggs and white onions, then scrambled to perfection.  The perfect portion size arrived with a side of roasted red potatoes, onion and green pepper.

The morning staff is different from their dinner staff.  Not too worry, Ramon and Carlos are extremely friendly - both with huge personalities and smiles!

Breakfast at No Way Jose! is a great value with fresh, delicious food and attentive service.  See ya in June...

Mmm... Mmm... Mmm...
