For those who have been living under a rock (i.e. those of you who aren’t signed up to our newsletter and thus don’t have access to our more regular updates), we are no longer based in Cancun. After around 8 years of living there, we have officially moved on…to Mexico City. Which means I probably need to get around to updating all the “about” pages and the like on this site at some point….

Like most born-and-bred caucasians from the United States, I have a thing for hamburgers. Red meat in general, actually. Doesn’t help that I grew up on a farm and my family still has a cattle ranch. And while I don’t eat red meat more than once or twice a month, and I’m extremely particular about how I like my steaks and burgers (to the point we cook most of them at home where I can control the outcome), there is an exception to the rule when I’m looking for the best burgers in Cancun: the Burger St. Food Truck.

If it’s your first time to Cancun, and you’ve never wondered what the cuisine here might be like, apart from there being plenty of tacos to choose from, let us enlighten you. Most of the local restaurants in Cancun will focus on some varient of traditional Mexican recipes; mole, sopes, tacos, tortas, and beyond. But this is also an area heavily influenced by the Yucatan, so it would only stand to reason that we have some pretty damn good Yucatecan restaurants. The thing is, you won’t find any in the Hotel Zone. Instead, the best Yucaten food in Cancun can be found downtown, around centro, where the locals live. Read More
Is it really already time for the May edition of this series? Time truly does fly when you’re having fun…
Last month saw us mostly buckled down ahead of our appearance at the TBEX North America convention in Huntsville, Alabama where we were on-site presenting on brand building & marketing via social media, but Cris and I still managed to get some local exploration done while we were out and about. Let’s recap! Read More
I have a deep-rooted passion for Italian food. Especially pastas. And when it comes to pizza I’m a prickly beast who is very specific in my requirements for what I consider the “perfect” pizza. Thin crust, crunchy, hand-picked vegetables, good cheese and none of that “drench the pizza in tomato sauce” bullshit that Americans call “pizza”. Though I’m also a closet fan of the pan-fried Extravaganza pizza from Dominos here in Cancun. Shhhhhhh.
A few years back, Cris and I discovered a hole-in-the-wall place selling pizza in Cancun called Assaggiare. When we first did a blog post + video and etc. on them, it was back in 2013. Since then, they’ve moved locations, improved in a dozen different ways, and grown their brand based on love, sweat, and passion. When we got around to working on our #FoodiesGuideCancun series, we naturally swung back around and updated this article with new photos and video. Let’s take a look into Chef Miguel Bolaños’ kitchen.
