My first stop of the day was at Riviera Maya, which features this mural on one of the walls.
But I was not alone. MilwFoodLovers, AlyceInRoadfoodland, X1,
were among those perusing the menus.
Drinks came first and horchata was a popular choice at the south end of the table.
Most orders were for tapas and the leader here was the aforementioned mole sampler. Going from memory, L-R is chocolate, pumpkin/pepita, sesame, almond, and peanut, and my favorites were the pumpkin (the spiciest) and the peanut.
I'm not sure what the red sauce accompanying the guacamole was. It had a sharper, somewhat spicy flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Cocteles de camarones in different glasses, or 2 different things?
were across from me and they ordered the steak with pipian rojo sauce.
Shrimp in pipian verde, which Stricken Detective
and myself thought was the pumpkin mole from the sampler tray.
I remember the fonduta had melted cheese and chorizo but the other ingredients escape me, probably because they were vegetable in nature.
What remained of the flan by the time it got down to our end.
Eventually we ("we" being PfeffPip Eric, Ann Peeples, JRPfeff, Pie Diva, PfeffPip Martin, Stricken_Detective, Mr. Maki, Buddy Roadhouse,
) gathered like a flock of confused sheep in advance of the trip northward to Glendale and Dr. Dawg.
