To say we were disappointed in not discovering this place sooner would be an understatement. The problem is that we had selected “Vegan” in the Happy Cow app and not “Vegan” and “Vegetarian”. You live and learn.
Anyway we totally stuffed on the tamales we had only ten minutes before finished so we couldn’t force any more food down even if we had wanted to. But the food everyone was eating looked so good! So, sadly we had to move on.
After about 30 minutes wandering around Tulum, we were feeling a bit down as the town had not lived up to our expectations. We decided we needed to drown our sorrows and went back to La Hoya Verde and try out their beer selection. And, we were not disappointed as they served us a delicious Mexican strong dark beer. This also gave us another opportunity to see what food was being served on other tables – it looked totally amazing. We didn’t have time to hang around to wait for our hunger to return, but if we should ever find ourselves back in Tulum we know where to come!
