The terraces are for the summer and the one in Tepic is, without a doubt, the best recommendation for those gourmets who seek to enjoy the good temperatures —and the cool night, hopefully— and the best Mexican flavor.
Tepic once again welcomes summer with a renovated terrace, with new chairs and more vegetation, and showing off its fresh waters, very popular drinks in Mexico and that in this restaurant they make as in the Latin American country: with 100% natural ingredients, No concentrates or syrups. The fresh waters, without alcohol, are the perfect choice to refresh without moderation. In Tepic they are made in the restaurant, following the Mexican tradition: with natural fruits, without syrups or industrial pulps. There are four kinds: the most famous is Agua de Jamaica, a famous Mexican drink that is made by infusing hibiscus flowers and sweetened to suit the consumer. Tamarind water, also very popular in the Latin American country, is prepared by hydrating and crushing this exotic fruit, with an acid point, and all the seeds are removed. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the rice water, which in addition to incorporating this cereal, contains normal, evaporated and condensed milk and cinnamon. Finally, there is the mango, which is served with tagine, a mixture of spices with a spicy touch that offers a rich contrast with the sweetness of this fruit. On these dates, lemonades are also very typical, also made by hand, which can be enjoyed plain or with a touch of sparkling water. If you prefer something with more punch, the Tepic cocktail bar is top notch, with signature and Mexican drinks executed to perfection.
