- Cuisines: Local Traditional

- The restaurant's décor abounds with accents of Mexican furniture and art, reminiscent of the country's customs and traditions. Washed down terracottas, browns and lively Mexican pink surround the traditional central patio, highlighted by one young arrayán tree. The restaurant's name evolved from Porras' memories as a child of visiting candy shops with her mother in search of "dulces de arrayán" while on holiday in Guadalajara. She also remembers an arrayán tree at her great-grandfather's house in Guadalajara, which is there to this day bearing fruit every year. The arrayán tree, which is prevalent in the Jalisco region of Mexico, features four petal flowers and a small edible fruit. Emphasizing the regional wealth of the state of Jalisco, EL ARRAYÁN strives to bring home the influences that have historically changed cooking in the region, as the way people cook varies from the flatlands to the coast, lakes and forests. Dishes are prepared using Pre-Hispanic ingredients such as chile, corn, cactus paddles, beans and avocado, combining them with European ingredients brought to Mexico which are now staples, such as pork, beef and cheese among many others. The bar is fully stocked and offers an extensive variety of tequilas and regional liquors as well as international selections. So, enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere, as you sip a Raicilla or Tequila and listen to soft traditional Mexican music (Not your typical mariachi band!) and savor some of our specialties, like the delicious black bean and cheese filled plantain fritters. Different salsas enhance your meal and tickle your taste buds. Desserts are to die for, specially the cajeta (caramel spread) flan. ALLENDE #344 EL CENTRO, PUERTO VALLARTA, JALISCO MÉXICO.
