Mamasita’s Taqueria is located right at the port of Costa Maya. After having paid some dude to take us into the city where we were stopped by some sort of checkpoint, and checking out what local spots there were, I decided it might be safer to eat at the port (for sanitary reasons). In retrospect, I probably should have taken my chances with the other grub. Mamasita’s does have “Taqueria” in its name so I’m thinking they gotta hit those out of the ballpark. Nachos, Quesadillas too, what the hell, it’s Mexican right?
The only thing Mexican about this place is the soil it was built on. This is the same food you’ll find at those chain Tex-Mex joints all over the city. I don’t have problems with Tex-Mex Food, I just find that they’re all very same-y.
The Tacos at MAmasita’s have CHEESE for God’s sake, yes CHEESE. Jack and Cheddar Cheeses on tacos, this is more like Taco Bell!
This place sells Fries, I couldn’t resist and ordered them. Just as I thought but I still held out hope, they were of the frozen variety. At least I got a snazzy Heinz Ketchup packet in Spanish out of it.
Why does everyone at all the ports put straws under the tab, on the soda cans? My suggestion, if you find yourself at Costa Maya, stay away unless you plan to get drunk and then who really cares what you’re eating.
