A Bit of Culinary History Weekend Menu & Daily Specials
The culinary delights of the Yucatecan cuisine are made of an exquisite blend of flavors, both Mexican and European.
A bit of history will explain the strong European influence: there was a time when the Yucatán Peninsula was considered a land to which access was difficult and far removed from the rest of Mexico. The mountainous terrain and few roads isolated the peninsula.
However, having ports, cultural treaties, and commercial dealings with Europe (particularly France), New Orleans and Cuba, the Yucatecans' were pleasantly influenced in clothing, architecture, and cusine, from these countries and cities.
The mixture in culinary arts, resulted in some of the following exquisite unmatched delicacies found in our weekly, weekend, and catering menus.
FRIJOL CON PUERCO The Yucatecan version of pork and beans. Chunks of pork cooked with black beans, served with rice, and garnished with radish, cilantro and onion. A regular Monday dish in most Yucatecan homes.
