    El Asador: Excellent restaurant near the bus station

    by Jefie Written Mar 30, 2015

    While I was still in the process of booking my trip, I saw that there was a La Parilla located just down the street from our hotel, so I figured it would be a convenient place to have dinner on our one and only night in Cancun. However, when we showed up, the place was taken over by a large group, and there was a quiet restaurant next to it that seemed much more appealing. We sat at a table on the sunny second floor balcony and were happy to take advantage of the happy hour specials (2 for 1 on beer and cocktails). The menu featured plenty of local specialties and everything was very reasonably priced. Our waiter was very nice: he didn't speak much English, but he was very patient as I was doing my best to order in my rusty Spanish. The food was excellent, and I guess we truly lucked out because when I tried to find the restaurant's Website (there doesn't seem to be one), I saw that El Asador was often recommended as a local's favorite in downtown Cancun :o)

    Favorite Dish: My tacos al pastor were excellent!
