While in Mérida, we rented a room in a a house in the Itzimná area of Mérida. Itzimná is a neighbourhood to the north of central Mérida. It’s a well-off neighbourhood, owing to the fact that hacienda owners would build their summer homes here.
Our host told us there was a nice taco stand just around the corner. To my surprise, it was a place that I had previously read about in Yucatan Living.
It’s best to arrive early, because by noon they start running out of ingredients, and usually close by 2pm. Weave your way through the crowd enjoying or waiting for their order. Unless you get there really early, it’s standing-room only… but worth it.
The menu is conveniently located on the building wall. We ordered the egg and cactus tacos (huevo con nopal). They came topped with black beans; not only were they delicious, but quite filling. But I’m sure everything on the menu is worth ordering.
