Restaurant at DAC

I believe it is called La Ceiba de la 30. I'm surprised there is so little mention of this nice little restaurant. The food there is simple but delicious. I love the chicken quesadillas, and the enchiladas Rojas looked tasty, too. The smoothies, in my opinion, are better than Nativo's. The staff are always friendly, and the prices are good. It is one of my favorite lunch spots.

Love this place, agree on smoothies, I am addicted to the pineapple with fresh mint. Breakfasts are terrific and it is fun shopping in the store.

We noticed this place when we were wandering through the market last year and commented that it looked like a good place to eat. Will have to give it a try this year - but we won't tell anyone else about it!

We eat breakfast there so often (like almost every day) that when they recently re-did the menus, they added hot oatmeal based on our relentless consumption of it. Order it with kiwi, fresas y coco... then add a bit of azucar mascabado and you're set!

Ate here for supper the other day...simply delicious and inexpensive. Large portions too...don't really need an appy. We had the chicken quesadillas (for appy...but arrived at same time and really didn't need it!), mediterranean chicken salad, burrito and the most delicious caramelised bananas in orange liquor for dessert complete with aldo's gelato.

Just watched a recent Rick Bayless youtube video where it looks like they are shopping at DAC. What really intrigued me was this comment:

"We love a good farmer's market, and we found one in Playa del Carmen at El Jardin de Todos."

I've never heard of this and googling turns up nothing. I know somebody here has got to know something.

By the way, there are numerous sneak peak videos of Bayless' upcoming season 11 that all take place in the Yucatan.
