The Real Cancun: Authentic Yucatán Cooking 🇲🇽

Cancun is not what you think it is…


Home of Senior Frogs and Margaritaville and sun-burnt tourists with braids. But it’s also home to Sopa de Limón and Cochinita Pibil and a deep, flavorful culinary history from the Yucatán peninsula. Peeling back the layers exposes a winding network of markets and vendors who service the people who service the tourists. The nice gentleman making your 4th tequila sunrise is not having the tacos you’re having. No, something much better, maybe a plate of papadzules or Huevos Motuleños or pavo relleno negro. To go to Cancun and write it off as a tourist dump is missing so much of the good stuff buried just beneath the surface. Ask the waiter, ask the driver or hell just walk inland for a couple of blocks, Cancun is not what you think it is.
