A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. Discover additional uses with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Pacific Coast–style Mexican fare at Yelapa Playa Mexicana.
Experienced executive chef L.J. Wiley carefully crafts the Pacific Coast cuisine at Yelapa Playa Mexicana using fresh, authentic ingredients. Chow down on tempura-battered fish tacos ($11.99), crab enchiladas ($14.99), or pineapple ceviche ($9.99) for lunch, or awaken salivary glands with seafood dinner options such as the grouper sangre de maya ($21.99) or the Mexican shrimp and grits ($20.99). Warm, burnt-sienna tables and chairs offset cool blue accents and cushion customers' protoplasms as they feast, and an outdoor patio satisfies fresh-air breathers when the weather’s happy.
- We loved the presentation of the tacos -- all the toppings were arrayed neatly in a geometric dish, in a fun build-your-own taco manner -- but the chicken caught us entirely off-guard. The skin was crisp, the meat intensely juicy. We've never had chicken this good in any restaurant, anywhere. – Katharine Shilcutt, Houston Press
- Cozy, Cute, Unique, Fun, Clean....are all words I would use to describe Yelapa. – Shawn P., Yelp, 8/20/10
