YUMMY

Great authentic Mayan food! The paunches and sopa de lima are by far the best with an ice cold glass of lemonade!

As far as I know, Los Almendros is one of the best exponents of the traditional Yucatan cooking. I reccomend to go at least one time.

One of the most traditional meals in Yucatan! The panuchos are amazing! The place is very nice and the mariachis are very pleasant.

We were just arriving from Campeche and missed the cochinita in Hecelchakan so we were craving for authentic food. We stayed at Presidente Merida, just across the street and we walked to Los Almendros.

There is nothing special about the appearance or atmosphere of this place but the food is great. My favorite regional Mexican foods are from Oaxaca and Yucatan. I got the sampler place with lots of local delicacies. Now I'm hungry again.

We were told by some locals that they had the best soap de Lima in the city and we weren't disappointed. The soup was delicious as was the pechuga de pollo yucateca. We also ordered a side of the green habanero salsa and it was one of the hottest that I have tried and I loved it. The prices were... More
