FEDE's: Dining Off the Beaten Path in Puerto Peñasco

Gems Beyond the Tourist District

You have probably driven right by the sign for Fede’s on your way to town from Sandy Beach. Serving locals in their brightly decorated dining room, and delivering call-in orders, Fede’s specializes in breakfast and lunchtime comidas corridas, food “on the run.” A great place for breakfast any day, but especially when the usual places are crowded, or for lunch on your way home from a morning of shopping, you will be pleasantly surprised at the Fede’s experience!
Barbara Rojo Ruíz, la cocinera, serves up a different lunch special each day of the week. Monday’s chilis rellenos and Thursday’s enchiladas suizas, filled with chicken and made with mild green chilies, are absolutely delicious! Served with tossed salad and rice, they make a great meal. For an easy company dinner, order these delicious “white” enchiladas ahead—they will wow your guests!

Fede’s always has home brewed jamaica to drink; this traditional Mexican drink is actually a tea made from hibiscus flowers, and is said to be healthy and full of antioxidants. It is definitely delicious, and may well become your favorite non-alcoholic beverage.

Plan about $7 each to lunch at Fede’s, including drinks! Open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., except Sundays, Fede’s is located on Calle Franciso Villa, a half a block south of Calle NoReelección. From Sandy Beach, follow Las Palomas Blvd toward town, and take Calle NoReeleción east from the second traffic circle. At the first stop sign, turn right, and go a half a block; Fede’s is the brightly painted little restaurant on your left. Call 383-3419 for take-out or delivery to your home, condominium or hotel. ¡Buen provecho!
