Fodor's Expert Review Los Almendros
If you can't make it to the Yucatán, try the peninsula's unusual food here. The habanero chilies, red onions, recados (seasoning pastes), 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 pescado Tikin-Xic—whitefish in a mild red marinade of annatto seed and bitter-orange juice. Unless you're alone, try the antojitos de Santa Ana, a huge tasting platter of 10 typical dishes. It's also a place for power breakfasts among businessmen from this posh neighborhood.
