Today my friend Richard had some family in town from Connecticut and he was taking them to this unparalleled ceviche making gem in a cutty spot in Tankah Bay, and he graciously invited me along for lunch. I’m so glad he did because this is the kind of place only the locals know about. Seriously, if you didn’t know to go there you would never find it, there isn’t a sign and I don’t think the restaurant actually has a name. There might not even be a menu, maybe there is, but I never saw it. Richard immediately ordered the ceviche and the fried fish, and it’s possible that that’s all they have, either way it was incredible and unquestionably worth the trip.
Best ceviche on the planeandt…. The bay is gorgeous. Crystal clear water atop hundreds of yards of a thriving coral reef, and the ocean is literally the temperature of the perfectly drawn bath. If I hadn’t have gone with them I don’t think I would have actually tried ceviche from Tulum, just because I’m so paranoid about food and when I took a chance last year in Portugal I got sick for weeks. But at this little spot, which the only direction I can give you is find the sign for Oscar & Lola’s restaurant on hwy 307 and drive down a dirt road for a few miles and it will be on your left. The area is packed with trees and hammocks, and prestine sea life and shells, but thankfully not people, so if you decide to check out this spot, make sure to keep it your little secret!
