The best chicken mole in Tulum and if you don't eat meat they'll make you really whatever you prefer (in this case a quesadilla). That plus chips/salsa and two fresh juices for $10 is a steal.

Looks like a little hole in the wall, TV on, run by mom and pop. Really, really good homemade food. We're going back tomorrow for breakfast.

It's an extremely simple family-runned restaurant; there's no menu, you can choose your dish from the stove. People say it's the Tulum's best "pollo con mole" (chicken with cocoa sauce), but I didn't tried it. But my friend has, and liked it a lot. I...More
