Mazatlán cuisine on the whole isn't cutting edge. It's not experiencing the culinary renaissance of Mexico City that's been praised to high heaven, not leading the pack but proud of its deep-rooted food heritage. And any culinary tourist on Mexico's West Coast should stop in Mazatlán for aguachiles, birrias, smoked marlin tacos, burgers, chorreadas and, of course, the food carts along the Malecon, aka boardwalk.
Start the day at Pancho's Restaurant. There are countless breakfast spots in town, but the one you'll hear about the most is Panchos, The chile relleno and chilaquiles are standouts, but to be honest, its one of the best breakfast in town. Though the coffee isn't going to impress anyone, the chiles should be enough to wake you up. Sit upstairs, so you can look out onto the sea and ponder life as your ankles swell from all the lard and salt.

Have dinner in an old mansion at El Presidio. Chef Diego Becerra inherited a late-19th-century mansion from his grandmother and turned it into this indoor/outdoor compound that's arguably the most exciting restaurant in Mazatlán. The gorgeous tree-filled courtyard is the perfect location for your dream destination wedding, as long as you don't mind the bats that swoop around at night. Becerra, who's worked in kitchens in Mexico City and around Europe, is quick to admit that his hometown isn't the most risky when it comes to food. "People tend to stick to traditional food in Mazatlán, but I like to experiment when I can," he says. If there's one chef trying to push the culinary boundaries here, it's Becerra. His seafood-focused menu would do well in a larger city with harsher critics. Try the octopus carpaccio, smoked marlin tacos and raw shrimp aguachile.

El Quelite is a quaint town north of Mazatlán that wouldn't be included in articles like this if it weren't for the efforts of hometown hero Dr. Marcos Osuna. In 1998, he opened El Mesón de los Laureanos, a Mexican theme restaurant serving traditional dishes while entertaining guests with live, old-timey shows. The popularity of the restaurant has turned El Quelite into a touristy town. The food, it's way better than you'd expect considering the restaurant's gimmicky nature: The chilorio (slow-roasted pork in sauce) is lard-tastic and delicious, and the machaca (dried spiced beef) goes great with pitchers of sweet house-made horchata. The beef tongue is extra tender and, well, tongue-y. Try all the meats while you think to yourself, Man, that horse sure can dance.

Sip spirits at La Vinata de los Osuna. There used to be 23 tequila distilleries around Mazatlán; now there's only one, La Vinata de los Osuna. Well, that's not quite true: The family-owned distillery, which dates back to 1876, hasn't been able to call its product tequila since the government passed a law in 1972 that stipulates tequila needs to come from Jalisco and small parts of neighboring states. La Vinata de los Osuna calls its tequila-like spirit Destilado de Agave, and, trust us, it's way better than most mass-market tequilas. The production methods haven't changed much since the 19th century: We're talking horses pulling large stone wheels that crush the agave plants, small fermentation rooms and white-oak barrels. Production manager Louis Daniel Limon says, "We lose a lot of alcohol every year, because we still use wood—it evaporates. But it's worth it." The distillery doesn't seem to have plans to change much or expand, and produces only 30,000 bottles a year. Tequila lovers should absolutely visit the lush grounds to sip the goods and take a tour.

Did someone say “fresh, local seafood”? Topolo is a favorite of residents and tourists, with its varied menu and lovely courtyard ambience. The pork shank, the BBQ shrimp or the oysters Rockefeller are one of the bests in town and ask for the delicious custom salsa, a special recipe by the chef, ASK FOR IT!

If you are looking for a hidden treasure, find it where the dirt road in nuevo Mazatlan kisses the sea of cortes, at the very far north end of Cerritos. Small laid back surf style cafe that serves mouth watering meals with a big flavor, breakfast and meals are awesome; but go early cause they close at 4 and it´s only a seasonal restaurant.
