Can’t wait for December to come so I can go and try La papa loca for the first time.
What else is there that my wife and I should be trying?

For lunch: El Manglar on La Ropa. Excellent food and you might see a crocodile swimming past your table. Closed on Wednesday.
For lunch or dinner: Il Mare on the road to La Ropa. Great food, Greek on Wednesdays. 554-9067
For dinner: Amuleto, high above La Ropa. Excellent food and the best view in the area. Fairly expensive. Closed on Tuesdays. Reservations a must: 544-6222.

If you have any pesos left after frostbite's high-end spots, try a Baja-style fish taco at Los Braseros on Calle del Ejido. Or, on Sundays only, between maybe 10 am - 2 pm, take a taxi out to Dona Celia's in Coacoyul for the best pollo en mole in the area. Or go to the last restaurant at the south end of Playa Larga, (Punta Playa Larga) for blue corn sopes de pollo. Or get a delicious torta at the little hole-in-the-wall across the alley from Barracruda Bar, aka the old Rick's Bar.
If you don't feel like going all the way out to Papa Loca, you can get a passable stuffed potato or good tacos al pastor (still 5 for 20 pesos?) at La Flama del Tizon (Sp?) near Zorro's.
Or Calle Adelita for fish tacos at El Arreyan, or milanesa at Salvador's, or lasagna at La Portena on the Paseo del Pescador, or a hamburger with the works from the cart at the basketball court, or .....
Do I sound like I miss Zihua?

La Torta place across from the Barracruda is no longer there. The little one down the street from Bacomer is though. I would also suggest pozole on a Thursday at one of many pozolerias. My favorite being Santa Prisca.

I agree about the fried chicken. The best. I get all chicken wings and cole slaw. I don't like the mashed potatoes.
