Exploring new restaurants is part of the fun of visiting a new place and Merida definitely has a lot to offer. I’ve been reading several review sites and decided to check out Pan & Vino (Calle 62 x 59 y 61) and I was not disappointed. For about 80 pesos (@ $5.70 US) you can get a place of fresh, home made pasta with the sauce of your choice.
I’ve been twice so far. The first time I went alone and had gnocci with a spicy tomato sauce that was fantastic. Tonight I went back with some friends and had gnocci again but this time with fresh tomato, basil and mozzerella with a little olive oil. The sauce was not quite as good but the gnocci is some of the best I’ve ever had.
Now I just need to find some good Chinese and I’ll be set!
Meal cost: 200 MXN (@ $14.15 US) for an entree, dessert, 1/4 L. of good wine and tip. Definitely not the cheapest place in Merida but a nice break from Salbutes. 🙂
