The restaurant scene in Puerto Morelos is very lively and you really can’t tell the players without a program! (That is why we publish our voluminous Restaurant Guide)
Here are a couple of new news items…
We noticed that La Casa del Pescador, never one to be in a hurry, finally opened for the season! They have been a perennial favourite in town for many years. The restaurant has been closed for quite a while, then started doing some renovations that took a loooong time, but now they are open. If you have forgotten, they are located on the north side of the square, right above the fish cooperative (convenient), between Panna E Cioccolato Gelato and Richard’s Bistro. The menu has not changed a bit. If you had a favourite before, it’s still there.
Don Mexkal, one of PM’s premier late-night spots has a big new space. They did not move far, just 21 metres (less than 70 feet) down the road, but into a whole new venue, formerly occupied by El Sabor. Now they have much, much more space for people, food, Mezcal and music! They list their hours as 6:30 PM to 4:00 AM every day except Monday. We had a chance to visit last week and caught this cool band in the leafy backyard. They were just one of two bands that played that night.
La Parilla, which is a small restaurant chain from Cancun, closed their place in the south end of Puerto Morelos in the spring. Right before Christmas about a month ago, they briefly…and I mean briefly, re-opened in the big space above the big jewelry store at the entrance to the town. I took this photo on December 11. Just a couple of days later, they removed their little plastic sign and went dark. I never got a straight answer on what happened, but I think it is safe to say they will not be opening in that location any time soon.
La Parilla’s old space in the south end of town did not sit empty for too long. The space has been split in two, with this half being taken over by Easy Way Rent A Car. They are just getting opened as you can see. The other half is currently being worked on, and looks suspiciously like a restaurant. The other locale in the building is empty, you may remember there was a women’s swimsuit store there last season.
There are a few new choices for breakfast in town this season. One we can tell you about is Cancun Billy’s. They are getting up early, real early to serve breakfast on the beach starting at 7am!
