La Tienda Grande
La Tienda Grande is in Ixtapa, a small town 20 minutes from downtown PV that used to be a huge banana-growing hub. Now, Ixtapa is slowly becoming a popular city for new chefs, and La Tienda Grande might be the best restaurant in the area. It used to be one of the city’s general stores (the name literally translates to “the big store”) and it was the place where locals could buy everything from coffee grounds to soap or fruits and vegetables.
Order their famous capomo coffee made with the seeds of the capomo tree, and add on the burrito mañanero or the torta ahogada—the latter is a famous dish from Guadalajara that consists of a spicy tomato sauce-drenched torta filled with meat and cheese.
