The bowl with lunch at the Parador restaurant in Uxmal was all right, but not particularly memorable. A much better version was served at Hotel El Mesón del Marques in Valladolid, located in a 16th century colonial building overlooking the main square of Yucatan’s second oldest and largest city.
By far my champion sopa de lima experience was at Hacienda Xcanatun on the outskirts of Merida. Built in a restored 18th century sisal plantation, this is definitely one of the finest restaurants in the area. The Yucatecan lime soup in the photo was taken at Hacienda Xcanatun.
