Playa del Carmen Part II
Did I have Corona with lime? Hell no, I pretty much covered every beer from Mexico except the Corona's piss water. Sol with lime, Pacifico with lime, Monteja with lime, XX with lime, Superior with lime and Modelo Especial with lime. Bohemia and Negra Modelo with lime???? Hell no....Bohemia is a cerveza mas fina from Mexico. No lime is needed to garnish this wonderful beer. The taste...hmmm Sam Adams with mucho characters.
Food in Playa del Carmen is awesome. The town is splitted into 2 types of people. The tourists and the locals. Most of the tourists are either from North America or Europe. The majority of the locals are the real Mexican with Mayan heritage and the minorities are composed of European and North American. Okay going back to food....PDC has the best pizza outside of NYC. They are quite creative with their pies. Because of heavy concentration of European Italian. Pizza and Italian restaurants are doing pretty well down there. Crepe is always a must after dinner. My favorite is still Nutella and Cajeta-caramelized goat milk is quite good too. Other than these "foreign" influenced grubs. The local stuffs are superb! La Parilla makes the best mixed grill in the area, pescados and camarones taco from the sausage party taco shop...La Loncheria are delish! The real deal tacos are from the street...taco al pastor 7 pesos each. I even had the grilled hot dog from the street. They wrapped each pig with a blanket of bacon and served it in a hot dog roll with mayo, ketchup and mustard. The tamale is really hot but the hoochies who sell them off the cart are definitely not.
No iguanas or armadillo this time....You lucky bastards!!!
