Archie’s Wok has enriched Puerto Vallarta’s gastronomic scene since 1986, with fusion cuisine that combines the culinary legacies of various Asian countries. The restaurant was established by Filipino chef Archie, who arrived in Banderas Bay with his wife, Cyndi, and their children in the 1970s. Later, he became the chef of famous film director John Huston at his beach retreat, Caletas.

Despite Archie’s death in 1993, the flavors of his dishes continue to delight diners’ palates at the establishment located just a few feet from the Los Muertos Pier, on Francisca Rodríguez street in Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone.

To start your experience here, you can accompany any appetizer on the menu with a delicious Silk Moon Martini. This cocktail contains sake, a traditional Japanese drink made from fermented rice. It also includes Bombay Sapphire gin, Ketel One vodka, fresh ginger, lemon juice, lychee and a twist of lemon. Without a doubt, it is one of the most elegant cocktails on the menu, and you should try it at least once.

“This is one of our customers’ favorite cocktails. It is made with sake, and the moon that floats in the cocktail is made of lychee, a fantastic tropical fruit,” said Cyndi Alpenia, owner of Archie’s Wok.

A good idea is to ask for this drink while you enjoy the three-course menu during the last days of Restaurant Week.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
