La Sirena Gorda, Zihuatanejo

90 Paseo del Pescador
Tel: 52 755 554 2687's insider take:

A jolly fat mermaid (sirena gorda) watches over barefoot beer drinkers from paintings decorating the walls at this casual café—on Zihua's seaside walkway. The tacos pescado al pastor (fish tacos with savory sauces) are legendary, as are the seafood stews and grilled fish. Some travelers have been known to begin the day with the mermaid's fragrant coffee and French toast and end it with cheladas (beer with lime and salt) at the same wooden table, watching fishermen mend their nets and display the catch of the day on the sand.

Open Thursdays through Tuesdays 8 am to 10:30 pm.
