Archie's Wok - Puerto Vallarta - Asian Restaurant

Archie's Wok is an unlikely restaurant you would think to go to while in Mexico.  However this Romantic Zone mainstay is in a word - Wonderful.  Locals and Tourists alike love to dine here.  The Asian inspired dishes are impeccably created and you get generous portions. 

Each menu cover is unique in that local children color them for the restaurant.

I had the 'Catch of the Day' which just so happened to be Mahi-Mahi and I believe is always Mahi-Mahi - but that is ok since it is very good.  It is prepared - char-broiled, basted in  homemade teriyaki sauce served with broiled pineapple and gingery stir-fried vegetables.

Jeff had the 'Singapore style Fish' - prepared lightly fried in beer batter served with pineapple-guava sweet & sour sauce.

Our friends had the Drunken Noodles and the other the Thai style spicy Noodles.  I tasted both and they were great.  SO much flavor!  There wasn't any carryout boxes that night.  We all ate every delicious morsel.

The signature drink of Archie's is their spicy margarita.  It definetly had a bite to it.  Comes served with a Jalepeno on rim instead of the usual lime garnish of a traditional margarita.  It was a little too spicey for me - but my husband and friends polished off 3 each with no problem :)

Would I go again?  Absolutely!  Should you?  Absolutely!

We met a couple one evening leaving Archie's and asked what they thought and the wife said it was their 3rd  visit that week and she expected they would return again before the week ended.  That's a lot of Asian food - but that indicates how good it is.
