Cancun's Regional Mexican Cuisine


If you've ever been to Cancun, you can't help but notice that it is very touristy: the beaches are beautiful, they're lined with huge hotels and party people, and it's a fun place to crash for a weekend.  It can be hard to find anything authentically Mexican in this place, but if you look, you can find some great dishes endemic to to the Cancun area.  I like this article by KC Kudra that touches on this:

...tacos filled with pork skin in green sauce, beef, potato or Mexican sausage, cheese and potato quesadillas served with salsa or Tik-in-xic fish which is fish marinated in a sour orange juice and achiote marinade and baked in banana leaves. Tamales in Cancun are great and these are steamed cornmeal stuffed with pork, chicken, or beef.

Speak soon,
