It's not that I haven't seen or blogged about street food in Puerto Vallarta before, but now I am noticing more and more of it. Not just a stand where people pick something up to go either places with chairs on the streets where you can eat and hang out. There are 2 (maybe 3) such stands next to the huge Pharmacia Guadalajara that reminded me of Bangkok where they will set up complete make shift restaurants on the side walk.
Just up the street on Venustiano Carranza is a bustling local restaurant that stood in stark contrast to the fancy place next store (Casa Naranja) which was empty while the other place (name to come) was happening. It seems maybe easy to say this is a reflection of the economy, everyone here is complaining that this is one of the slowest high seasons they have seen.
