Memorable | One of the Best
Review by: Michael Stern
“Bienvenutos a Cancun” reads the sign on a cooler full of beer you see the moment you enter this neighborhood Mexican restaurant. It is indeed a welcoming little place with a handful of tables, those along the front window offering a view of the bumpers of cars in the parking lot. Although I speak little Spanish and the staff isn’t too good at English, it was easy to order a super burrito stuffed with carnitas (shredded pork), rice and beans, smothered with shredded cheese and warm salsa and decorated with dabs of sour cream and guacamole. It’s a fine burrito, the savory roast pork packing heaps of flavor. I also relished a glass of horchata, the cool sweet rice beverage that is so refreshing with spicy food, as well as a bottle of Jarritos brand mandarin orange soda – also an excellent palate refresher.
Tacos are available filled with a wide range of ingredients from spicy pork to tongue, cheek meat, tripe, fish, chicken and goat. Other menu highlights include a wide array of enchiladas, camarones a la diabla (hot and spicy shrimp) and camarones al tequila.
Note: Cancun is closed Wednesdays.
