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. 🙂
