THE COLORS AND SIMPLICITY
OF HONEST FOOD

  • Exquisite traditional Mexican food at La Cantina - The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun

    HANDMADE TORTILLAS AND LOTS OF LOVE

    Receive the charming welcome of a traditional hangout with mariachi overtones and proud hosts eager to satisfy your cravings for local fare. Sample the soft corn kernels of a belly-warming esquite, tug at the tail of a biting shrimp aguachile, and devour a grasshopper-filled guacamole. Journey north to Hidalgo and relish a slow-cooked mutton Barbacoa, or stop off at the capital for tangy tacos al pastor. Savory whims tended to, dip a crunchy churro in warm Oaxaca-chocolate sauce and sip cinnamon-infused crock-pot coffee.
