My boyfriend and I visited Tulum for the first time together in early November. After a few walks up and down the beach road, we worried that everything would be pricy and representative of the touristy beach culture. One of our first afternoons, we noticed this taquaria that was down a little pedestrian alley. Venture down this alley to a lovely establishment that includes a variety of Mayan staples like panuchos, salubusos, and tacos with slow-cooked meat and fresh vegetables. We literally ate there every single day after we discovered this friendly oasis. They also have a sauce buffet of 6-7 different sauce that you can mix and match atop your perfectly prepared dish.
The meals we enjoyed at Chencho's that week were delicious and memorable, but I really enjoyed getting to know the family behind the food. We learned that they spoke Yucatec Mayan in the kitchen, and we even got to meet the manager's 6-month old son.
This is a great place for couples, friends or family. The setting is peaceful and accommodating. I can't wait to visit them again.
