Thanksgiving dinner, 2017

Hi everyone!

We are going to be in Playa with a friend during Thanksgiving week. We have been traveling there since 2003, but have never been there for Thanksgiving.

Any of you experienced folks been to tradition Thanksgiving dinners out in Playa? Not sure that is what we will want to do, but it might be.

Mom's Bar usually does a great Thanksgiving Buffet/dinner for both American and Canadian Thanksgiving. Not sure about this year though.

We went to Wah Wahs last year. It was pretty good. It was a buffet, so the food was better if you caught the fresh pan, but it was busy enough that the food rotated pretty quickly.


I don't recall the exact price, but it was very reasonable.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Roni,

There are several places that offer Thanksgiving dinners here. Don't worry about feeling out of place because there are plenty of choices.

Not sure as we haven't received any emails, etc. about booking for this year. I'm sure something will come out a bit later. You have to reserve as it is very popular.

Where Are you referring to Mom's
If you are, the uncertainty about Thanksgiving and Mom's is probably due to the fact that Jurgen is currently back in Germany.

Yes I was referring to Mom's Bar as per Lizinvan's question. And yes, I'm aware Jurgen is currently back in Germany.

We have not been to Playa during Thanksgiving for a few years now, but we did try the following during that time:

Zenzi - They had a buffett - there was a group of maybe 11 of us. They ran out of food and some of it was cold. Never went back, so not even sure if they still have it.

Wicky's - this was my favorite - we ate there two years in a row, sadly they closed.

Mom's - Potluck style - Did this twice, it was a great crowd, I'm glad that they now have cranberry sauce in Mexico and I don't have to get stopped at customs anymore

Once again, its been a few years.
