On Saturday Cesar and I had hoped to check out a flea market; however, we were never actually able to find it. I am not referring to the typical Cancun tourist flea market but a local one that is usually held on Saturdays at one location and Sundays at another location. So we ended up eating a late lunch at one of my favourite little “hole in the wall” restaurants called Los Pescaditos.
Los Pescaditos have two locations in Cancun and we went to the one on Yaxchilan Ave. as they often feature live music and we are friendly with the staff. They always have people so there is a nice buzz and the food is always great. Their specialties are lightly battered fish sticks using grouper and fried tacos with either fish or shrimp in them. They also make a great fish and shrimp ceviche Acapulco- style which means that the fish and shrimp have been ‘cooked” in lime juice. If you are looking for something else to try they also have shrimp stuffed jalapeño poppers and assorted fish/shrimp/oyster based soups which are great for a hangover :) We ordered the fish sticks and decided to share a fish ceviche.
Unfortunately, by the time we arrived we had missed the live band but as usual they were playing some great music on their stereo. IF you are in Cancun and looking for a reasonably cheap place with great food and atmosphere look no further, hail a taxi and tell them you want to go to Los Pescaditos! Buen Provecho!
