El Bufalo is, hands down, our new favorite "go to" spot. A little hard to find, this neighborhood spot is currently offering local fare (tacos, huaraches, salbutes, hamburguesas and more) along with some chinese food at present. The couple who own the restaurant are lovely and speak a bit of english. Manuel, the chef, trained in the large hotels in Cancun and he definitely knows his way around the kitchen. An array of delicious sauces and fresh fruit drinks are made by Ibette and her friendly smile will welcome you when you arrive. Meats are grilled curbside and everything is freshly prepared. On our last visit, we enjoyed huaraches (a large flat homemade tortilla covered with meat, beans, lettuce and drizzled with crema, spiced to our liking by the array of sauces on the table (most of which i could eat with a spoon!). We were far too full to partake of the cookies or pie (baked by an american friend of Ibette's) but they looked delicious! Total cost for dinner--2 huaraches, 2 beverages (no alcohol) 80 pesos! A plate of chinese food is 50 pesos. It can be a little tricky to find this place...as you are heading south out of town, take the airport road and then after Da Luisa stay inland through Salina Chica. another block or so on your left, look for the house with the painted window and walls, courtesy of a local artist. There's a white barrel grill out front and a couple of tables on the sidewalk. El Bufulo is also serving breakfast now.
