How was the Noma pop up? Didn't plan my trip early enough to buy tickets but put my name on the waiting list anyway.Can't say I looked particularly hard but didn't see anything other than a couple that were included in the tasting menu at Noma.
Actually, I guess I had a couple of craft beers at 2 other restaurants but none were anything worth writing home about.
Noma was amazing and well worth the hype; hope you're able to get in or snag a seat at the bar.How was the Noma pop up? Didn't plan my trip early enough to buy tickets but put my name on the waiting list anyway.
Anything else you'd recommend (craft beer related or otherwise)?
I was also there for the Noma dinner on May 5. Indeed quite excellent. Three pairings; a honey mead by Escollo (Mexico City), an amber from Ceiba (Merida), and a decent golden sour from Wendlandt (Ensenada). If you do want to try to snag a bar seat, get there around 9:30 AM to reserve for that evening. There's a line by 10AM and only 12 seats per day at the bar. Also managed a dinner at Hartwood, and enjoyed their cocktails. Simple has a new Sushi menu, but their beer selection was limited...only one selection was left. Heard Safari has some craft, but didn't have time to stop there, or Gitano (wanted to after Hartwood, but was driving back to Akumal).Noma was amazing and well worth the hype; hope you're able to get in or snag a seat at the bar.
Gitano had great drinks. Cetli was great upscale homey food but they said they were moving locations soon and I'm not sure when the new location opens up. El Pez had some good food and drinks and a nice view. Antojitos La Chiapaneca for Al Pastor tacos but beware that they have pretty limited hours. Taqueria Honorio for Cochinita Pibil tacos (also fairly limited hours). El Camello Jr. for ceviche and seafood. Grand Cenote was beautiful and really cool to snorkel around in. Cenote Escondido has a pretty fun rope swing and is more of a local swimming hole.
