Recipes > MENUS FROM MAYAN BEACH GARDEN INN

The restaurant at Mayan Beach Garden features a Menu of the day (with options) that is designed to appeal to a wide variety of tastes. We use fresh ingredients (no MSG here, Marcia is allergic to it), and serve primarily Mexican/Yucatecan food, mixing it up with a touch of Caribbean. We provide both local Mayan recipes from the Yucatan and those from other areas of Mexico.

The Meal Plan at Mayan Beach Garden includes the set menu* or Menu del Dia. When you make reservations, please communicate food allergies, particular likes and dislikes and we will try to accommodate your needs in advance.

*Sodas and Alcoholic beverages are available for an extra fee.

Pitahaya
The Yucatan is home to many exotic fruits that will never find their way into US stores. The fruit pictures above is Pitahaya or Dragon fruit, which is in season in the June/July time frame. The closest fruit that I can compare it is Kiwi but with a firmer texture about the size of a medium orange. When in season, we will serve it for desert, chilled and eaten with a spoon right out of the magenta colored rind --delicious!
