At the Public market. Inexpensive good food. They even ran to the market for a poblano chili when I wanted chili relleno.

“Taco Tumbras is a true local gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2010

Run by three generations of the same family. Authentic local food at it's best. And you can not beat the price. Give them a try for breakfast....I think you will enjoy.

We ate breakfast here 2 times on our trip in January. Very good and cheap. The fruit plate was exceptional!

“Best Breakfasts on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2010

Tacos Tumbras is the easternmost (farthest from the street) of the four adjoining restaurants next to the public market. I ate there every day for a week in late November, and boy, was it good. Huevos Mexicana, tortillas, frijoles, rice, lemonade, guacamole for the equivalent of about $4. Excellent grilled shrimp. The guacamole was made on the spot when I ordered it; same with the salsa, which was the hottest stuff I encountered on the island. Fabulous. The place is run by a very nice family and usually opens at about 8:00 a.m., making it one of the earliest opening restaurants in Isla Mujeres.
