This is a local favorite and a great place to stop in for breakfast if you want to get an early start sightseeing (they are open from 7 am–11 pm). Marganzo specializes in traditional Yucatecan dishes like panuchos (fried masa cakes stuffed with beans and piled high with shredded meat, lettuce, sour onions, and other toppings). Other signature dishes here include queso relleno (Dutch cheese stuffed with minced pork and beef), chile mestizo (poblano pepper stuffed with shredded meat), and beet-root carpaccio topped with goat cheese and toasted nuts. If you aren't sure what to order, ask to see their album menu of top dishes photographed and captioned in several languages. The waitresses, dressed in colorful skirts from the region, are very kind about explaining regional dishes to visitors. Note that you can try plain agua de chaya here—in other restaurants the chaya-flavored water is often sweetened with pineapple. The lunch and dinner menus also offer good seafood options (and are finished off with a complimentary tamarind margarita). A guitar trio performs Tuesday through Sunday from 8 to 10:30 pm.
