Food Stalls: I'll have what they're having
I had a rather blah breakfast at the Restaurant Yaxkin, and the place was not very pleasant. At night, moreover, it was completely empty. Again and again, I have read that you must eat where everyone else eats, so that the food doesn't sit around too long. There were not many choices. The Petexbatun and the Botanero were closed, perhaps permanently. Anyway, the only busy spot was a street stall, so I took my chances. I ordered what everyone else was having: small silver dollar tortillas with seasoned lukewarm ground chicken on top. And an orange soda. It was very plain, but I did not get sick. Total $2.

Can't Remember--Ask Around: Wild Game Meat in Sayaxche
I know I'll get low ratings for this post, but I have to at least inform you about the opportunity to eat wild game in Sayaxche. Apparently, the restaurant buys meat from local hunters who capture their game in the wild lands around Sayaxche. I can't even remember what meat we ate because it was part of a stew. I think I ate a small animal like an armadillo or porcupine. What's available depends upon what's in stock for the night. The restaurant doesn't sell endangered species or anything like that, so enjoy the unusual meats.
Favorite Dish: Again, I can't recall the details, but the food was good. The atmosphere was mostly a family restaurant, with large tables catering to farmer families in town for the day. Prices were very good, but expect to pay more for trucked in beverages and so on.
