About

A palapa is a palm-thatched sun haven found on beaches in Mexico. True to its namesake, La Palapa offers cuisine that is at once a haven from ordinary Mexican fare and an effective tool for blocking the sun. For lunch, start with a palate-pleasing appetizer such as plátanos con crema (sweet plantains with cream and house-made queso fresco, $6.95) before moving on to the famous Mexico City–style tacos ($5.95 each), which can be filled with eight delectable flavors, including al pastor (pineapple-chile rubbed pork). Later eaters can hang a fang on dinner entrees such as pato al mole negro oaxaqueño (grilled duck breast in rich black mole infused with 26 magical ingredients) or camarones al mojo de ajo (shrimp sautéed with garlic, red tomato rice, and slow-cooked black beans). Lubricate throat pipes and conversations and complement the meal with a tangy selection from the cocktail catalogue.
