We recently had the opportunity to stop in Valladolid for an early dinner after a day at the ruins at Chichen Itza with amigos from Brazil who were scouting for a film shoot. Needless to say they loved the ruins of Chichen Itza.
One of our favorite places to eat is El Meson de Marques in Valladolid. We arrived around 5:30 pm and the there were a few people there, but by 7:00pm the place was packed with locals and visitors! Why, because here you can enjoy terrific Mexican and Yucatecan food. Morning, noon and night. We picked a few our favorite regional dishes to share with our visiting friends: Cochinita Pibil, sopa de lima, Yucatan style longaniza and their house special “Caldo de Marques” which is flavorful soup which is hearty with avocado, other veggies, chicken, and a little spice! The caldo is a winner!
El Meson de Marques is in the top ten restaurants in Valladolid and located right on the zocalo, it’s easy to find.
