we are going to cancun the end of feb. having gone many times we have pretty much exhausted the usual suspects, both on the island and in the city. we really want to find places that challenge with their food: lengua, tripas, chicharrones, etc, priced anywhere from $ to $$$,
stand up or sit down, indoors or out. one place i remember from years past is a place in cancun
ciudad called el milagro, which was recommended to me by an employee who talked of "pig cheek" tacos. now, that's what i'm talkin' about!
another craving is a place serving real mexican drinking chocolate and fresh fried churros. oh my god!, i can't get it out of my mind!
also, we are spending a day on isla mujeres; any ideas on the backstreets while we're out there?
i'm looking forward to reporting back on the places i find when we get home in march.

    Phatues, please report on the "regular places". My husband and I are going to Cancun on Friday and seeking any and all restaurant recommendations. Staying at the Me by Melia...thanks.
