Los Dos Street Eats

Street Eats

Available year-round by request.

One of the best ways to get to know a country, its food and its people is to eat where the people eat. In Yucatán, the great majority of folks grab a mid-morning snack at local street stalls or in the markets, and have the afternoon meal at a cocina económica – small, owner-run restaurants that often operate in the front rooms of family homes. All of these places feature down-to-earth, honest-to-goodness real regional food. But to the uninitiated, the prospect can be daunting. Which one of the many possibilities? And most important: Is it safe? Join Los Dos as Chef Canul personally leads you to some of the best of the bunch – and eat like a real Yucatecan!
