Tacos Camarones

May 13, 2010 at 6:37 pm 4 comments

This morning we went to nearby Playa del Carmen just to poke round in the tourist shops and have some lunch. We ate at a cute little cafe called the Restaurante Cactus, which was owned by a French woman. There I had the best shrimp tacos I’ve ever had in my life.

My husband had chicken enchiladas in a mole sauce, which was unlike any mole sauce I’ve ever tried. It was a little  sweet, a little fruity, a little spicy, and a little savory. It was EXCELLENT.

Normally I would shy away from Mexican food recipes conceived by a non-Mexican person. But, I’m convinced that French people have can cook any food, any style, and make it taste AMAZING. The proprietress was so cute–she even put out colorful placemats for us.

The best part? The whole meal, including a giant, fresh lemonade and a banana smoothie only cost about twelve dollars.

    @ Bellywho: The little polka dots were black sesame seeds!
