The Basics: Seafood

Fresh seafood abounds in Acapulco, with all the usual suspects making an appearance: sandwiches out of beach-side shacks, grilled fish platters and plenty of ceviche. Regional ceviche has its own unique flavor acquired by the unconventional splash of orange soda or juice and sprinkling of tomatoes. Acapulco also has two seafood dishes that are distinct to the region: Pescado a la Talla is the most well-known regional specialty from the Pacific Coast, a grilled snapper that has been marinated in spices and chiles. Vuelve a la vida or “return to life” in English, is the perfect antidote to Acapulco’s famed nightlife, a hangover cure that locals swear by. It’s essentially a seafood cocktail (think bloody Mary with seafood thrown in) served in a chilled goblet with a side of saltine crackers and sliced avocado. A vuelve a la vida usually contains some combination of shrimp, raw clams and oysters, squid and ceviche doused in tomato juice, ketchup and a spicy salsa.

Acapulco Cuisine

Pozole

In Acapulco, you can enjoy two types of pozole: white and green. White pozole is the kind you can find just about anywhere in Mexico; it’s prepared with chicken or pork, heirloom corn, vegetables and tortilla chips. Green pozole, specific to Acapulco, has pumpkin seed sauce and green tomatoes added. The steaming hot soup is usually served in a clay bowl and is the perfect meal for a rainy afternoon on the coast.

Relleno Guerrerense

Another classic Acapulco dish that’s specific to the state, this stew is a heady combination of pork, pork lard, pork skin and spices. Everything is finely chopped, mixed up together and slow-cooked in a clay pot.

Tamales Guerrerenses

The delicious tamales guerrerenses have a special flavor that makes for a unique dining experience. They often consist of black mole with pork, chicken or green beans and squash blossoms wrapped in a banana leaf that gives them a more smooth and solid consistency. You can also enjoy bean tamales covered with green pumpkin seed mole or tamales made from fresh pumpkin.

Acapulco Style Ceviche

Since Acapulco is a major port town, fresh seafood is something that can easily be enjoyed during your visit. Acapulqueno ceviche is prepared by cooking pieces of fish that were dipped in lemon juice for at least one night before draining the mixture and adding onion, fresh lemon juice, diced avocado, cilantro, olive oil, olives and chili.

Pescado a la Talla

Acapulco is full of coconut and tamarind trees, and as a result, there are various recipes that have been created using the fruits. Some of the treats that are peddled on the beach and everywhere in between include tamarind pulp mixed with sugar, jamoncillo, a nutty kind of fudge, baked coconut candy and coconut ice cream.
