For most people the beach is synonym of cocktails, ceviche and seafood, but one day we heard about “this delicious pizza” at the beach, specifically at Playa El Tunco, which had a great atmosphere and unique hosts. So, we decided to take a trip to that beach and to visit Pizzeria Tunco Veloz, our goal was to know the secrets and ingredients that made this place a great restaurant and that it made it super popular within the national clientele, and also between the foreigner clients that visit this place very often. We wanted to try and to taste this cuisine so we could promote it.
The place is located in El Tunco main street, the sign is outside Hotel Mopelia, so no one can get lost. We entered and the first impression was that this place was an experience really worth trying, its rustic details and decoration, the music somehow bohemian, walls having photographic gastronomic art. The owner has local knowledge on mountain tours, and any other activity that the area could offer to the tourists, from tours to nightlife tips.
As soon as we entered the restaurant, we spoke with the host, from there the reasons and questions of why this place is different were answered. And what happens is that this business has been running for over 8 years, and it started operations based on an initial secret, its owner assets many Italian recipes regarding sauces. That is one of the reasons pesto is found in many of his pizza specialties, we could notice many classic ingredients on the pizza such as prosciutto, and a few that are local grown, such as spinach, dry tomatoes, eggplant. The crust is crispy, which is different from what other pizzerias offer in the country, and in the area. The flavor and the sauce it's straight up unique.
As to be expected, secrets are not fully reveal, but we were able to watch some basil, mint and arugula plants, which means ingredients are fresh and organic grown in the business own garden. We were also able to try some olive oil garlic, spices and spicy infusions.
In the menu, besides pizza, there are other options to choose, as for example soups, gratinated eggplant and zucchini, special salads with balsamic vinegar. Crepes with ice cream, among others.
To keep it short, we are inviting you to visit this place, and we assure you will have an extraordinary experience.
