Start the first course sharing our mouthwatering: Lobster Pescadillas.
Our chef gave an extraordinary twist to the classic Mexican quesadilla. These Lobster Pescadillas are made with a crispy corn tortilla filled with the best lobster caught right here in Costa Maya, fresh and seasoned with garlic, tomato and onion, topped with lettuce, pickled onion, and our zesty chipotle mayo.
After devouring our Pescadillas with a couple of beers, we can go straight to the main dish.
Prepare your palate for the most famous dried meat in Mexico, which is called “Cecina de Yecapixtla”
Generous strips of beef tenderloin and leg, patiently cured to keep its natural flavors and served right out of the grill with the non-less bounteous sides of 2 small sopes with red and green sauces, cheese, cactus slides, pearl onions and guacamole made from scratch.
The abundant portions served at Flavors will leave you completely satisfied. But in case you still want to go for more, our second recommendation will be the perfect match for this culinary adventure.
