Food and Friends

This morning we went to Taco Maya, in Chelem, for brunch with S and D who live on the floor above us. We all had breakfast burritos. They're huge and, at 50 pesos each, an excellent bargain. We all had a hard time finishing our meals. The orange juice was freshly squeezed and as delicious as the burrito.

Taco Maya is a cute little hole-in-the-wall kind of place. There are about 10 tables beneath a rustic cover. The kitchen forms the front wall. The two side walls are concrete for about 3 feet up and the upper part is made of twigs joined together by rope or wire. I'm afraid I didn't take close note of that part. The back wall is formed by some hanging vines behind which are the washrooms and no roof. On the twig walls are paintings and other crafty things. I didn't ask if they were for sale but this is Mexico. Almost anything is available for a price.

Our neighbours, Liz and Marty, invited us over for ribs for supper. We had already taken some shrimp out so we took those over and cooked them up there. We spent a very enjoyable evening on their patio. They're a very funny couple and we laughed until our guts hurt.


  1. One of these days I'm going to get back to Chelem and try TacoMaya. It sounds great.

  2. Debbie, this was our first time there so I have no idea what their business hours are. But our friends raved about the Sunday breakfast and they were right.
