Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get one menu item and a beverage (up to a $10.50 value) at Puerto Vallarta Amigos, open Monday through Friday on the corner of Wharf and Yates.
Housed within a travelling food truck, Puerto Vallarta Amigos stays parked in a steady spot throughout the work week to dish out a menu of Mexican treats made from authentic family recipes. Today's Groupon is good for tacos, a quesadilla, a torta (all normally $6), or the combo platter of salad, four tortillas, and a choice of two fillings (normally $8), plus a refreshing drink to wash down renegade rice and beans. Tacos are sextuplets of flavour, with six tortillas that can be stuffed with any of Puerto Vallarta's fillings, such as beef barbacoa seasoned with a family blend of Mexican spices, chicken fajitas, soy chorizo cooked in chile guajillo, and potato and spinach; several choices are vegetarian and vegan friendly. Fan favourites include the cheesy-joke-telling quesadilla and the tantalizing torta, a traditional Mexican hot sandwich on an eight-grain bun. To garnish your gatherings, Puerto Vallarta also offers a choice of homemade salsas, such as mild salsa verde and spicy salsa roja.
