We happened upon this restaurant as we returned to our hotel late one night. There was a digeridoo type music coming from this palapa style building and we strolled over to listen. A chap came out of the restaurant and explained that they cooked traditional food "for the soul" and offered me some fried grasshoppers. They were great! The next day we returned for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The service was informal, friendly and reflected a genuine pride in their unique cuisine. The dishes were delicious and the flavours very different to what we had experienced in other PDC restaurants. The tortillas were cooked fresh over the wood stove and served with half a dozen salsas of varying flavours and heat. In keeping with the pre Hispanic theme the only alcoholic beverages are local beers and mescal. The latter served with salt and orange slices. Delicious! The authentic atmosphere was enhanced when we strolled out the back of the restaurant where there is a small area of bush, and saw a family of coati mundis, local possum like animals. All in all very enjoyable but be prepared to spend a fair amount for the experience. The dishes were not expensive per se but the portions were fairly small so big eaters would need more of them and then the bill adds up. I would definitely return if only for fried grasshoppers and Indio beer.
