Taqueria El Amigo Mario
(located on Calle 5 between Calle General Francisco Mujica and Avenida 35)
A very local place, shared with us by our friend Tati who lives on the island. Love, love this place!
We dropped by to grab a snack on our way from the public market to Punta Sur. What a gem!! They are only open in the mornings, or until the meat runs out. They serve cochinita pibil everyday, and on Saturdays they have Lechon Al Horno (roasted pig). Sorry Hook, it is not Saturday today… no lechon for you! 😛
We had the cochinita pibil tacos which were deeeee-licious! The meat was oh-so-tender and flavorful.
Definitely a must come back to place next time. I will even force myself to get up and out early enough to catch their open hours. We normally have a problem getting up and out and about early…
Total bill for 5 tacos and 3 sodas was Mex$120 (roughly US$10). OMG, super cheap! But super delicioso!
Thank you, Tati for introducing us to this place. You are my go-to gourmet guide!
