Mayan food?

I did a search for Mayan food here and got nothing. I know about Maya restaurant, but I was wondering about real Mayan without the real millions of dollars needed there.

I am willing to travel, but only via subway and not into truly sketchy areas -- woman alone.

Any info much appreciated!

  1. I'm not really sure what Mayan food means. Obviously the Maya are all over Central America. Do you mean more rustic Mexican, Guatemalan or Honduran food? I'm not sure there's a cuisine that's distinctly Mayan separate from the food in any of those countries. Please correct me if I'm wrong about this.

    1. Do you mean Yucatecan food?
