On my latest visit to Guaymas Sonora, I was walking down the Malecon and saw this little stand by the side of it. It had a nice little canopy and a couple tables with some chairs and in the middle of it all an old cooler with a table next to it with a bunch of ingredients. The cooler read Cocos Don Fano.
I just wanted a coconut with chili and lemon but he had the works going on. He taught me to pick the different types of coconuts available, some had more water than meat others had a bunch of meat and then there was the ones with really hard meat, similar to the ones we have here in the states.
I went ahead and asked him for the one with really soft meat, he then told me that they are called Cocos De Cuchara, so he got it and started hacking away.
He then put the water inside a little bag with a straw, this took me back to when I was seven in the beaches of San Carlos. I enjoyed the coconut water until the preparation of the coconut was done.
He then cut up the really soft meat off of the coconut and added like ten different type of sauces along with some lemon, salt and chili. Handed me a fork and napkin.
I then started eating it, and it was delicious I could taste the soy sauce and Salsa Magi that he added along with a bunch of other stuff, after eating all the meat there was some juice left, this is the best part of this snack, sipping it while looking at the bay of Guaymas was and awesome treat. When ever you come down make sure to pass by the Malecon and get yourself one.
