Yucatecan food is a rich amalgam of flavors that fuses Mayan, European and Caribbean influences, creating a unique gastronomic experience in Mexico. And although there is no way to enjoy it in Yucatán, the inhabitants of the capital are true fans of the flavors of the Peninsula.
In Mexico City there are several proposals to travel through the flavors of Yucatan and one of the most recent candidates to win the affection of diners is El Yuka, in Zona Rosa.
On London Street in the Juárez neighborhood, this restaurant offers some of the most representative dishes of Yucatan such as papadzules, poc chuc, cochinita pibil, salbutes, pig’s trotters, lime soup, marquesitas, among others.
The dishes are accompanied by corn tortillas, pickled onion and habanero chili sauce, creating an explosion of flavors that delights the most demanding palates and represents the cultural and culinary richness of Yucatan.
A few days ago we had the opportunity to visit this place and these were some of the dishes we tried:
Cochinita pibil panuchos
Suckling pig tacos
And we couldn’t stop making ourselves a toast
In a delicious taco
And for dessert: marquesitas
