Freddy’s Ocho Tostadas

This is my favorite new restaurant in Puerto Vallarta a 40 minute walk from old town, behind the Municipal Stadium.  They are not open for dinner, hours are 11-7 and they are closed on Tuesday.
Fredy’s:  413 Ecuador street at Rio Guayaquil.

The food is seafood with an italian twist done from a Mexican perspective: Awesome!

 I’m not sure how taco chips came in to being, but here and elsewhere the tosado rules (which makes sense her given the name of the place).

 Love the open kitchen and the very open inside outside space that is the restaurant.

 This white fish ceviche was made transcendent by the addition of sweet potato which when mixed with the chili infused lime vinaigrette was amazing.  A real revelation.  The corn used was also not like sweet corn we know it was chewy and almost nutty.

 The story goes that long ago there where three brothers who owned one restaurant – now there are three restaurants all with similar names, they had some sort of family fight, but from what I can tell this is the place to eat, one of the others is further a field in the Marina – word on the street is that it is OK with really great ceviches but lack luster mains.  I can’t confirm that as I have not been…if you decided to do a sampling of all three let me know!

My super yummy seafood pasta.
Me looking equally happy and very full after my lunch.
And yes Fredy is spelt with one “d” it’s not just my bad typing! 

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
