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.
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.
