Restaurant Details

This cozy storefront restaurant is easy to miss because it sits on the opposite side of Barry Road from the bustling Zona Rosa shopping center. But for fans of authentic Mexican fare, it’s worth turning south for a change. Here, Victor Esquada begrudgingly serves a few Tex-Mex dishes but Ixtapa’s menu is primarily focused on the spicy fare traditional to Esquada’s birthplace in Guadalajara, including camarones borrachos: shrimp cooked in a concoction of orange juice, beer, paprika and wine. Esquada won’t serve fried ice cream, but he does offer a delicious nondairy ice cream made with atole that effectively cools down the palate after a particularly spicy meal. — Charles Ferruzza
