6 Super Unique Must-Eat Places in Tulum

In Playa del Carmen & Tulum by Ali Madrazo2 Comments


Everything started as an adventure for Aaron D´corzo, owner and creator of this fascinating French restaurant located in Aldea Zama. A weekend away from New York at the beach ended up in opening a super original place where all what they do comes from family recipes from the south of France and with a touch of the Executive Chef. Everything in it is so different at what is normally seen at Tulum, but that makes it super interesting to visit it and try some of their amazing dishes and drinks. Aaron´s recommendations are the Lilith Cocktail, Savage Margarita, Steak Tartare, Raviolis aux Champignons and Filet de Boeuf.
