Chichen Itza

After Playa del Carmen, we headed up to Cancun for a few days. From there, we did a guided day trip to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza.

December travels continued. After Havana, I met up with my friend Jenny in Cancun and we based ourselves in Playa del Carmen for a few days. We did a day trip to Tulum from there, mainly to see the ruins. We decided to try and get there are opening time, so instead of taking a day tour or an ADO bus, we got a colectivo (shared taxi) since they start earlier.

Riley Street Garage

On Friday night, I miraculously got off work on time and headed to the city for dinner. We were celebrating Wai Lam's admission as a lawyer and she had picked Riley Street Garage, a fancy-ish restaurant which serves share plates.

Baked chicken (which was okay), truffled mash (great), fries (can't go wrong) and pea risotto in the background (really good).

Chorizo corn dogs, which was disappointing for how tiny they were (they're $4 each).

Burrata (the great love of my life) with peppers on fried bread.

It was moderately pricey overall and we were still hungry afterwards (we'd got a few other dishes too) so I'd save this place for special occasions.

Around town

Food and random scenes, as usual.
