Greetings all. Will be in Merida (first visit) later this month and could use some advice. Not a lot of current info on this board; there are also some comments from a few years ago. We’re staying in Centro, coming into town on a Sunday, leaving on Wednesday. Looks like we’ll have opportunity for 3 comidas (and maybe one early lunch), 3 dinners. We’re all about “food with flavor,” and would definitely want to focus on local/regional style food.
So, using chowhound and a couple of other sources, I have a somewhat long list I’m trying to cull down. Any comments at all on these, or others I’ve missed, would be much appreciated!
Local 3; Casa Frida; La Chaya Maya; 2012 Espacios Mayas y Algo Mas; El Chili Habanero; El Trapiche; El Principe Tutul Xiu, El Templo; Amaro ; Los Almendros all look good from what I can see. Also making my list were Rosas y Xocolate; Restaurante Kantun; La Flor de Santiago.
Thoughts? What’s missing? Other favorite food ideas? I also read about the Saturday slow food market; is it really only Saturdays (and if not, is it worth it)?
Thanks for your help.
