In the town of Tulum, Mexico, there is one restaurant that a lot of people will tell you to go for tacos. However they don’t serve dinner and if you plan on going for lunch, they might be closed by the time you arrive. Taqueria Honorio opens at 6 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday but closes when they run out of food.
How It’s Made
The cochinta pibil is made offsite about 4 miles outside of Tulum. The pork is seasoned and cut, then put into covered pans. The metal pans are lowered into an outdoor rectangular fire pit and covered with leaves, metal and ash to retain heat. The pork roasts overnight for 12 hours and is brought back to the restaurant each morning at 5 a.m and served as tacos or torta sandwiches.
Things to Know
