Playa Azul Mexican Restaurant

1423 S. Federal Blvd.
Denver, CO 80219-4720

Playa Azul Mexican Restaurant offers a seafood-themed menu with friendly service and festive music. In addition to piles of shrimp and whole fried tilapia, the menu also includes enchiladas and other combo plates, and you wonâ??t go wrong ordering any of them. But we skip right to the chile verde served in a molcajete, a piping-hot stone bowl filled with bubbling, tangy verde studded with tender pork. Or hold out for a weekend visit so that you can experience the rich birria de chivo, a dark, satisfying stew of tender goat (or sometimes lamb) on the bone.
