The traditional eating habits of Mexicans cater to a lifestyle around their work and daily activities. While our hefty meal is dinner, Mexicans eat small portions during dinner time. In the Mexican culture, work ceases during the middle of the day (similar to our lunch break but for a longer period of time). Lunch is the biggest meal in the Mexican culture; it’s a leisure time to talk with friends and family. A Mexican breakfast can range from something light to a huge spread of food. From tipping to celebrations, Mexican culture brings a different set of habits than we are accustomed to in the United States.
At Ixtapa, we incorporate Mexican traditions, but we still suit our meals to follow American habits (a light lunch and big dinner). Our Mexican meals may not follow eating habits of traditional Mexico, but we include authentic Mexican flavors. If you have any questions about meals offered at Ixtapa, feel free to contact our locations!
