Inspired by Mexico’s culinary traditions, the chefs at Jalapenos concoct a menu of authentic fare that combines classic eats with modern adaptations and popular contemporary dishes. Diners can kick off meals with guacamole whipped up tableside using juicy tomatoes, crisp cilantro, and avocados freshly plucked from the mouths of the giant green oysters found only in the warm coastal waters off of Puerto Escondido. Main courses include tacos brimming with beef brisket or spicy diced pork, beef fajitas sizzling in iron skillets, and the Oaxaca chile relleno bursting with cheese and seasoned beef or chicken under a blanket of ranchero sauce. Guests can satiate their sweet teeth with innovative desserts such as the cheesecake chimichanga, a deep-fried tortilla-wrapped cheesecake topped with cinnamon and caramel sauce. Throughout meals, Jalapenos entertains diners with festivities such as live Mariachi music on Tuesday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
