Mayan Cuisine and Us


Somewhere between life, career, and traveling, I took a hiatus from blogging. It was good because it made me realize how much I missed writing random snippets about my love for cooking and food, reading and browsing all your talented cooks’ blogs, and simply taking the time to slow down time a bit. In this post, I want to share some very happy moments I spent with my husband at Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

A Serene, Secluded Section of the Resort

As coffee lovers, or caffeine addicts if you would, imagine our excitement when we saw the French Press in our hotel room. Every morning, we would wake up lazily, set the hourglass, and begin our fresh French Press coffee with Cafe Britt’s coffee grinds. I am not quite sure if it was the mood or the coffee itself, but it definitely was some of the best coffee we’ve ever had.

Food, of course, like always, was a highlight of the vacation. The authentic, delicious and beautifully presented Mayan cuisine dishes are sorely missed!

We also ordered Moloch, a combination of different Mayan flavors. The plate below consists of Pibxcatic, Papadzul, Shrimp Panucho, Tsotolbilchay and Tsic.

At the resort restaurant, we had the privilege to try the most amazing mouthwatering quesadillas.

PDC, we’ll be back!

    It sounds – and looks – like you had a lovely time in Mexico. Welcome home! If you don't mind my asking, which resort did you visit?

    Fairmont Mayakoba! It's in a resort area with 2 others and a short ride to downtown PDC. Loved it there!

    Those quesadillas sound fantastic! They remind me of something we had at a resort in Puerto Vallarta. So. Unbelievably. Delicious.
