If you can't make it to the Yucatán, try the peninsula's unusual food here. The habañero chilies, red onions, and other native Yucatecan ingredients are a delightful surprise for those not yet in the know. Traditional dishes like a refreshing lime soup share the menu with hard-to-pronounce Mayan cuisine like cochinita pibíl, an orange pork dish. Especially worth trying is the pescado tikinxic—whitefish in a mild red marinade of annatto seed and bitter-orange juice.

Outstanding service and beautiful decor at this restaurant. We had tamarind margaritas, pescado tikinxic, and cochinita pibil -- all very different from the Mexican cuisine we're most familiar with, but delicious. The servers were very friendly and helpful.
