Restaurant D'Al - Restaurant Merida - Mexico

Surely not many Meridan eateries as modest as Restaurante D’Al can boast an accolade in the New York Times. The favorable write up this popular cocina economica earned (which is proudly featured on their menu) appears to be well deserved, given their reasonable and delicious offerings.

The majority of local customers seem to prefer the comida del día or daily special. On the day V!VA visited, the special was pollo en escabeche. This comforting and delicious bowlful of chicken broth came with two chicken pieces spiced in typical Yucatecan style and a pile of warm tortillas. At about $2.60, it was excellent value. Other reasonably priced offerings on the menu included poc-chuc (the marinated pork dish that is a specialty of the region), a variety of grilled fish and seafood dishes (including garlicky pescado mojo de ajo), and, for those craving something less spicy, burgers and omelets.

Service is prompt and friendly. D’Al offers beer (not often the case in such economical local lunch-spots), as well as a range of aguas, juices, soft drinks and coffee. The restaurant is situated indoors on the corner of C54 and C53 – slightly off the beaten track but less than 10 minutes walk from Plaza Grande and well worth the detour.
