The cuisine of Quintana Roo shares several elements with that of Yucatán and Campeche, in which traditional and contemporary cooking techniques are mixed.
Although in places like Playa del Carmen and Cancun, where migrants from other countries live, the dishes have been enriched with international flavors.
In the regional cuisine, ingredients of pre-Hispanic origin are combined with those brought by the Spaniards. The dishes of chicken meat, pork, beef and rabbit stewed and seasoned with oregano, purple onion, sour orange, sweet pepper, pumpkin seed, tomato, achiote, habanero pepper and coriander among other ingredients stand out.
The papadzules, cochinita pibil, pipián, black filling and panuchos are part of the gastronomic elements shared with the rest of the peninsula. In some municipalities of Quintana Roo, it is still possible to try wild boar, deer, chachalaca and pheasant meat, cooked in pib or ground oven seasoned with chiles from the region.
Fish and Seafood: Highlights include steamed or butter lobster, snail ceviche, seafood soups and cazón empanadas. The grilled fish wrapped in banana leaf is also eaten. In Cozumel, it is advisable to try the royal crab. Many seafood dishes are accompanied with spicy sauces of fresh or dried chili peppers, such as habanero, chiltepin, morita, rattlesnake or tree.
Drinks: The tan-chu-cua, made with corn and cocoa, the chaya water and the fresh fruit waters of the Caribbean, such as the nance, pitahaya, chicozapote and guaya, stand out. Balché, a drink obtained from the fermentation of the bark of the tree of the same name, is the regional liquor and was a ritual drink for the ancient Maya. Also considered sacred, but not alcoholic, saka is made with corn and honey.
