Puerto Vallarta Marlin tacos

Cardie | Dec 22, 2005 09:33 AM

Tacon Marlin (tacon is the way to say a BIG taco)outside the Puerto Vallarta airport (go over the bridge outside - DON'T eat at the airport). They have the most fantastic roasted Marlin tacos. They are huge. When you sit down you are served a little cup of a chopped veggie salad with a crema type dressing that is very tasty, then a small plate of chiles/onions/other in escabeche. The tacon comes. It is wrapped in a toasted flour tortilla and really looks more like a burrito. FILLED with chunks of roasted seasoned Marlin. There are 3 types of salsa's from squirt bottles which were all delish. The price is $4.50. This is where the pilots eat, we saw many in there. I could only eat half and took the other on the flight. Wish I would have ordered some to go. Fellow passengers going back to LA were impressed. FYI Marlin(swordfish)is on the "good alternative" category from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium list. Women of childbearing age and children should avoid.
