Los Aguaschiles Restaurant: The Karagöz puppets swoon in Tulum, Mexico

The morning after our foray into Tulum Pueblo on beater bikes to beat the band, we were sore, yet determined to return for more mariscos.  After experiencing an almost life-changing Sobada Maya (Arvigo Mayan stomach massage), I was feeling great.  After many years of abdominal pain on the equivalent of a medium-low simmer, I felt barely anything.  And, to make matters even more wonderful, my masseur suggested a wonderful place for lunch – Los Aguaschiles, back in the pueblo. You can read more about that amazing place by clicking here.  This time, we oldsters hopped in a taxi and soon landed in the open-air restaurant that is well-known for its fish tacos, amongst other things.

The Karagöz puppets were so overcome by the healthy deliciousness of Los Aguaschiles, that all they could do was eat, and eat, and eat some more.  And so in honor of all of that eating, all we are doing today (me and the puppets that is) is posting photos of our food extravaganza.  I couldn’t help but think that even the food snob Turks, who believe that Turkish cuisine is the best in the world (and who could argue, really?) would have to love this simple and flavorful food.  Afiyet olsun!
