We took a different turn heading back to out hotel from the tennis courts one day and fortunately discovered La Perla Pixan. The staff was super friendly and helped me because I actually wasn't familiar with many things on the menu..... and i speak Spanish !
It was brunch time and the fruit plate was incredible and unexpected. Prickly pears, yellow guava, the creamiest and most flavorful papaya I've ever tasted and another green cactus fruit accompanied by honey, cheese and tiny black seeds. Delicious and super fresh. I was excited to see Zucchini flowers on the menu which I've only seen once before in Colorado. They made delicious empanadas out of them and that was served with fresh, homemade dipping sauces. One of the super friendly staff gave us a piece of strawberry pie that her mom made and we drank cucumber lemonade. I've eaten a lot of Mexican food in my life but never anything like La Perla. Pixan means "soul" in Mayan and over the counter where the chef cooks, it says "aqui se cocina con pixan." La verdade. Really exceptional food cooked with love and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend it.
