Cheap Restaurants in Merida



Cuisine

  • Mexican
  • You don't have to spend a lot of pesos to eat well in Mérida. The city abounds with inexpensive restaurants and food stalls.

    #1 on my list is Marlin Azul near the Zocalo is a great, inexpensive choice. As you would expect from a city located between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, Mérida's restaurants serve excellent, fresh seafood.

    El Trapiche ranks #2 because of its location less than one block from the Zocalo, its reasonably priced, always good Mexican/Yucatecan fare (and it serves pizza, too).

    #3 is Café La Habana, the 24-hour restaurant that is a Mérida institution.

    The Lucas de Galvez, Santa Ana, and Santiago public markets have dozens of little family-run restaurants that are open for breakfast and lunch. Pick one with lots of people and you can't go wrong.

    A popular treat prepared at carts in the Zocalo is the marquesita, which can best be described as a crispy crepe or waffle - filled with Gouda cheese or Nutella.
