Fine dining in Merida

The food in Merida and the Yucatan is widely praised, though not everyone's a convert. I heard enough dissing of the inferior tortillas (not soft like those in MexicoCity) and predominance of turkey in nearly everything. I guess you have to choose for yourself. Here's  the NYT's Mark Bittman on Yucatan cuisine.


  1. I read that article before our last trip, and I had every intention of sampling Sylvia's special tacos while we there, but it just didn’t happen. Oh well, there's always next time...they look delicious in the photo.

  2. Oops. I meant to say Sabrina's special taco's. Sylvia's might not be as good :-)
