Explore your foodie side at Playa del Carmen

Mexican cuisine is famous around the globe. It has become a global sensation but its basic staples still remain to be the native foods such as corn, beans and chili peppers, beef, pork, chicken, goat and sheep and cheese and various herbs and lots of spices. Mexican cuisine is as complex as any of the great cuisines in the world, such as those of India, China, France, Italy and Turkey.

Travel blogger Ryan Gargiulo of ‘Pause the Moment’ who had recently spent a year as an ex-pat in Playa del Carmen, in an interview shared his experience of the best spots to eat in this bohemian Mexican city on the Caribbean Sea. Situated on the edge of the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean, Playa del Carmen is truly a destination that can’t be missed when traveling to the Riviera Maya.

From street side vendors to the best in Mexican and international cuisines, everything is under cover. Playa has some absolute gems on offer.

Let’s start the gastronomic journey…

If you’re looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant in Playa del Carmen, look no further than La Coronela. They serve authentic and delicious Mexican food in town and it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “Some of my favorite dishes include the fajitas, burritos (chicken/steak/arrachera), the house salad with grilled chicken and the tortilla soup. Oh, and don’t forget to order a side of Guacamole. It’s to die for,” said Ryan Gargiulo.

Oh Lala is another food stop that you should consider along with Bio Natural. It’s the place where you can look for healthy food in Playa like fresh salads, falafel, quinoa, cous cous, tofu, vegan lasagne, veggie pitas and a whole lot more.

If healthy food is not your pick then what about mouth watering deep dish pizza? Look no further than Don Chendo. That’s right, folks, yummy pizza right at Mexico.
