Tacos are life.>
words by Christina Thomas
My favorite taco stop in town in Tulum is called Honorio. They serve handmade tortillas with your choice of the following : lechon with a piece of crispy pig skin (sorry veggies!), the classic cochinita pibil, carne asada, relleno negro which is turkey meat with a black mole sauce and a piece of hard boiled egg–one that they don’t make much of so you have to get there early to enjoy!
Everything can be on a delicious warm tortilla or as a torta on their shockingly incredible bread made just for Honorio.
Their hours are from around 7am to until they run out of food which is usually around 12pm. So it’s a pork-filled brekkie around here in Mexico but once in a while, it’s sooo necessary!
Luckily Mexico is known for their fresh juices (make sure you ask for it without sugar though! They put a scary amount of the refined stuff in there before blending if you don’t!). My favorite is a green juice that uses a local Mayan spinach called chaya. It’s a tougher thick, broad green leaf that adds tons of nutrients to your meal. It is typically blended with either lime, orange, or pineapple to cut the bitterness. Give it a try when you are in these parts!
