chichen itza really great stuff

so went here for lunch, open only 3 months or so. and sadly never tried the old location in the Mercado La Paloma at Figuera and 53rd, near usc.

anyways, real nice surroundings.

ordered up some of the habanero salsa. wow, pretty darn flavorul tasty as hell, and the hotness sneaks up on you like a sandstorm. and then you go back for more. Hot as hell, addictive as hell.

the fish dish here with the achiote paste, sauteeed and with garlic tomato achiote sour orange sauce is excellent. this dish would run you at least 30 a piece at a westside hotspot. so it goes without saying the prices here are really reasonable.

the jicama and orange salad is just the perfect antidote to the hotness of the habanero salsa.

next time i'll definitely go for the Grillled habaneros with lemon.

for dessert, flan, which was good not great. a couple of cokes and waters to wash it all down. next time aguas frescas.

2501 6th Street, bottom of a remodeled classic hotel.
