I saw these food vendors here the night I arrived to Playa Del Carmen and it seemed crowded with locals buying a late night meal – so you know I had to try it.
The vendors seems to be there all day and the food is authentic Mexican food. After watching the sunrise on my final day I had Gringas de Carne like it was one of the few items on the menu I had not tried yet. The Gringas were stuffed with meet and cheese and reminded me more of what people eat in NYC and call Quesadillas, they also come with lime, pico de gallo and your choice of spicy sauce. I sometimes fear getting red meat from vendors like these because they don’t seem to be cooked right but this was not the case here, the meat tasted well seasoned, not too chewy or over cooked. 👍🏼
The interesting thing is that all these vendors sell most of the same food so not too sure how they compete with each other.
