Fodor's Review

Campechano families come here to enjoy a light supper, perhaps a delicious sandwich claveteado of honey-and-clove-spiked ham, along with a typical drink such as the delicious agua de chaya, a mixture of pineapple water and chaya (a leafy vegetable similar to spinach). On weekends, try the tamal torteado, a tamale with beans, tomato sauce, turkey, and pork, wrapped in banana leaves—it's not listed on the menu but is available if you ask. Although

the place opens at 6 pm, most people come between 8 and midnight. Mark your choices on the paper menu: for tacos, "m" means maíz, or corn; for tortillas, "h" stands for harina, or flour. The dining area is a wide colonial veranda with marble flooring and tables decked out in plastic tablecloths. There's no booze, but a couple of doors down there's a beer stall called Cervefrío that's open until around 9 pm.
