    Los Almendros: A Yucatecan Tradition

    by kucha Written May 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's been a few years, but if this is still open, it's worth it to go sample the delicious Yucantan food here. I first tried the food at Los Almendros in the Polanco Distric of Mexico City and was thrilled to see a restaruant of the same name in Merida. I'm still not sure if they are run by the same owner, but the food was equally delcious and inventive in both locations.

    Favorite Dish: It was all good, but don't miss the spicy chicken and turkey (turkey is a Yucatan regional specialty, despite what some Americans might assume), such as pollo pibil and paco relleno negro. They're excellent!

    Hacienda Teya: The Best Local Cuisine!

    by kucha Updated Sep 15, 2005

    The best purely Yucatecan food in the city!

    Favorite Dish: Absolutely the world's best poc chuc (Milanese-style pork cutlet marinated in sour orange juice and quickly grilled over a wood fire) - and people come from miles around for this signature dish.

    Hacienda Xcanatún: The Best in Town

    by kucha Written Sep 15, 2005

    One of Mérida's top two restaurants. The hacienda has gone up in quality so much in the past few years! We enjoyed a traditionally Yucatecan menu, although most dishes are international with a Yucatecan flair.

    Favorite Dish: Roast Duck!!!

    pollon's Restaurant Tip

    by pollon Written Oct 4, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: what about sopas, marquesitas and elotes... I know everyone warns about not eating food from the stalls on the streets but there was a festival in Merida that Sunday and traditional fairs have always had a special charm on me, not to mention how inviting that food looked and I couldn't resist... the result was typical, yummy, good food and not a consequence after...
    and in case you wanted to dare like me: sopas in Mexico are not only soups but also a kind of smaller tacos covered with a sort of meat sauce, very rich in meat...
    marquesitas are unique, special crepes baked at the moment on what seems a cast iron plate, filled with typical grated cheese and rolled like a huge cigarette...
    elotes are husked corn on the cob served with sour cream and cheese...

    as said in my fondest memory there is then a food court in the Plaza Grande on the right side of the City Hall

    and if you are looking for a bakery, go to southwest corner of the main square (on the left of the City Hall) at the Panificadora Montejo
