Mexico -- One Plate at a Time With Rick Bayless

Off The Beaten Path In Playa Del Carmen

Season 11, Episode 3 of 13

Rick brings you out of the plush resorts and into the streets of Playa del Carmen, where street vendors and roadside stands serve real-deal Mexican food. Rick heads to Antojitos Yucateco for cochinita pibil tortas, then to nearby Las Karnitas for tacos of golden, crispy carnitas with spicy salsa. Then Rick follows the smoke to a little roadside cart, where crowds gather for cecina estilo Yecapixtla, thin-cut seared beef with grilled onions and nopales. At Le Chique, a modern dining room between Cancun and Puerto Morales, Chef Jonatan Gomez Luna dazzles Rick with feats of Mexican molecular gastronomy. Back in Chicago, Rick shows how to execute the perfect taco party of your own, complete with slow cooker carnitas, summer squash and guero chile, and grilled achiote catfish with spicy habanero mayo.
