Also Sandras on Calle 4 at Ave 25. Not as good as Billy the Kid but good. Hot sauces.

Also if she is still there good quesdillas on Ave 30 just south of Calle 4, just almost under Mom's Hotel. A little hole in the wall, the green sauce will light you up. She also has a chipole sauce that is wonderful.

Also a little place on the corner of Calle 2 and Ave 30. Good place, all locals.


All these places are very reasonable, all locals.
All good and there are many more in this area, love the food!

Just wanted to thank you for your review of Luna Maya, we celebrated our Anniversary there last week and had one of the best meals we have had in Playa.

We started with the pulled chicken appetizer, there were 3 and I had to fight Joe over the 3rd.

Joe had a ribeye, perfectly cooked and served with a side of double cream corn that was soooo good.

I enjoyed the lamb chops, and the little beautiful rolls( some with some kind of cheese filling)
I'm glad you like it. Next time try their cochinita pibil, it's superb.

I never noticed any difference in HC vs. CH arrachera--maybe because it was the same.
We went to that location in 05, had a hell of a time finding it as it was pouring rain at night. The place was kinda dark, not well lit BUT the arrachera, roasted onion, potato were all great. We had a 1/2 btl of red, Concha y Toro. Really felt like we were in Mexico.

Revisted HC at their constituyentes location in 2010, we ordered beers, salads and arrachera dinners. Beers came fast, meat came even faster, like 3 minutes, I kid you not. It was grey, barely charred, over marinated like PP has said, aweful. then the salads came. It was like they wanted to be ready for a rush and had it already cooked, totally lame as arrachera takes about 5 minutes to cook. I will never go back.

Costco and Sams both have amzing arrachera cuts, correctly marinated and grilled on a super hot BBQ at home, the results are far superior than what we have found inn PDC.

Best arrachera, hands down, is from Mandi. It is sold frozen, by the kilo (mas o menos) at DAC. Bring it home to defrost, crank up your grill to high and slap it on.

Mandi was our neighbor on calle 14 and is a famous futbol hero. His meat will be his legacy.
