What You'll Get
The earth's oceans remain a mystery to mankind because of humans' inability to breathe underwater or convince mermen to switch places on Freaky Friday. Savor the flavor of saltwater dwellers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at La Palapa.
La Palapa owners Alejandro and Diana Guerra swaddle patron tongues with a variety of authentic Nayarit-style seafood dishes. Once settled in under the breezy, beach-themed cabana, diners can crack open the houses of pearl-hoarding oysters ($6.99–$11.99) or taste the fruits of a fresh batch of fish ceviche ($5.99–$8.99). Boisterous stomach growls are reduced to symphonies in D minor with entrees featuring lobster-like platillo de langostinos served with rice and greens ($12.95), tilapia prepared one of three ways ($9.99), or the Nayarit state staple, crunchy shrimp ($18.95). Fans of traditional Mexican staples can wrap their appetites in familiar burrito blankets ($5.99) and quesadillas quilted out of fresh tortillas and cheese ($4.50–$6.99) and sip on a self-supplied beverage ($2 corking fee). Grass umbrellas, vivid colors, and the spirit of a great white shark bring a piece of the Pacific to the Midwest, helping La Palapa rank 15th in Time Out Chicago's list of the 20 Best Alfresco Dining Spots.
