Inside the truly excellent Mercado La Paloma, a former factory turned into a community gathering space and food hall, sits Chichen Itza. The tiny vendor specializes in traditional Yucatan cuisine. You’re going to start with the sikil-pac (a tomato and pumpkin seed based dip) and end with their signature dish, the cochinita pibil - marinated pork cooked and served in a giant banana leaf and topped with pickled onions (a.k.a., our version of heaven).
