We recently stopped back into the Mercado La Paloma (the vastly overlooked food hall south of downtown), and had the Mexican seafood lunch of our dreams at Holbox. The seafood counter/raw bar was just opened by the same people who do Chichen Itza next door, and is bringing great fresh seafood to an area of town that doesn’t have much of it. Think ceviche tostadas, chile rellenos stuffed with yellowtail, and raw oysters by the dozen. Don’t you dare leave without getting those lobster tacos.
