Marisquería, Playa del Carmen

Hotel Básico
Calle 10 at Avenida 5
Playa del Carmen
Tel: 52 984 879 4448's insider take:

The sturdy señora behind the counter at the Hotel Básico's second-story puesto (food stall) knows her way around pescado (fish) and mariscos (shellfish). Her ceviche is a pure and simple blend of the freshest fish with cilantro, lime, onions, and olives—add a side dish of white rice and fried plantains for the perfect light meal. In keeping with the hotel's industrial-chic decor, fish tacos are served with the flimsy brown napkins typical at old-fashioned neighborhood taco stands. But don't be fooled: Even the tortilla chips here are nouveau—freshly fried and served with small bowls of chipotle dip, mayo, diced pineapple with cilantro, and pico de gallo.
