Loved it here. We found the caldos (Mexican soup) to be as good as my wifes mothers, that is saying something. It is super cheap, but locals here, maybe some tourists might be nervous to enter as it is simple.. wow theyre missing out.

When you come in, there's no menu, you choose directly in the kitchen. It can be difficult to understand what it is if you don't speak Spanish but you can look at the food! We took albondigas (meatballs) with rice and black beans puree, pepper...More

El Tacoqueto is a great little place in the middle of Tulum town. It has a selection of about 8 dishes to choose from. Seems quite authentic. Good for lunch or a very casual dinner.
