Si Señor Restaurant to Offer Mexican “Pizza”

Published Oct 22, 2013, 11:00am - (Updated Nov 1, 2013, 11:02am)


Pizza is one of the world's favorite foods and has been around for hundreds of years. Even though Italians take credit for this culinary creation, Mexicans have been making their own version for even longer and it is the iconic dish of Oaxaca.

The tlayuda is a handmade, traditional Mexican food, which resembles pizza. It consists of a large, crunchy, partially fried or toasted tortilla, covered with toppings and served with various sides of salsa. This popular snack originated in the state of Oaxaca. Tlayudas are also very popular in the cities of Puebla, Guadalajara and Mexico City, and are also now available locally at Si Señor Beach Mexican Restaurant.

The chefs start with a hearty tortilla handmade in a traditional press and brought to a crisp on the grill. This is topped with your choice of salsas, including mole, chipotle/refried beans, poblano cream or a cilantro pesto. There is a wide selection of toppings. You can mix and match chorizo, chicken, tomato, shrimp, flank steak, cabbage, bell peppers, corn, jalepeños, bacon, mushrooms, caramelized onions and caramelized poblanos. This is all smothered with Oaxaca cheese and finished under the broiler.

The chefs have also come up with some special combinations with mole sauce as the base and topped with Oaxaca cheese.

  • Grilled Chicken, diced and mixed with chipotle salsa
  • Shrimp al Pastor, sautéed with onion and pineapple and mixed with pastor sauce
  • Michoacán Carnitas, marinated pork in a special blend of spices
  • Creamy Poblano, sautéed with garlic, onion and corn in a cream sauce
  • Vegetarian, a variety of grilled vegetables, pineapple and papaya
  • Octopus, sautéed in butter with guajillo chile, garlic and baby potatoes

To celebrate this delicious addition to the menu the restaurant is offering one Pizza Mexicana and two beers or two margaritas for only $150 pesos from November 1 to 7, 2013. These can be ordered between noon and 10pm. If you cannot make it for the special, a Pizza Mexicana can be ordered for $85 pesos. Si Señor is located on Los Muertos Beach at Playa Amapas 114, Colonia Emiliano Zapata.
