Reasons to visit Pischán Restaurant

1. The perfect fusion between two worlds

The gastronomic proposal that Pischán Restaurant offers to its diners is mostly composed of dishes with Mayan ingredients that introduce the secrets, flavors and aromas of our ancestors. In addition, these dishes are fused with contemporary techniques, giving life to a unique and unrepeatable menu.

In every bite the flavors and textures that you will taste will captivate your senses, a proof of this are their signature recipes such as; the juicy grilled salmon bathed in mole poblano and shrimp served with tequila cream. Both dishes that showcase the culinary creativity of Chef José Itzincab, an expert in Mayan gastronomy.

A highlight is that in addition to tasting excellent food, you can also discover signature drinks, carefully made from Mayan liqueurs such as Xtabentún, nance liqueur and peppermint liqueur. Just to name a few.

Also, we cannot forget to mention its spacious areas designed to transport you to a space of disconnection and enjoy privacy in the Mayan jungle, especially its attractive terrace and the patron’s table (a private area ideal for special events).

This makes it a complete experience, and a bridge between the past and the present!

2. Something for everyone

Other great advantages that make Pischán Restaurant an incredible place to enjoy in the company of family and friends is that it offers a wide range of dishes for all ages and tastes. So if you are not a fan of meat or are traveling with children, you have nothing to worry about.

As introduced in the previous paragraph, if meat or fish is not your thing, you can always check out the vegan and vegetarian options such as; spaghetti with vegetables, fajitas from the garden with mushrooms or vegan papadzules.

Flexibility to order delicious dishes

As if that were not enough, another plus that this Mayan restaurant has is its flexibility, because if you have found something that catches your attention, yet some ingredients are not completely to your liking, the chef in addition to offering equally delicious alternatives, if you request it, can also adapt your dish as much as possible.

For example, if the tequila shrimp have caught your eye, but you want to skip the alcoholic part, you could opt for garlic shrimp, so you won’t have to miss out on anything, and you won’t be left with a craving!

3. Facts that make it extra special

Although the most impressive thing about this establishment is its ancestral flavors and aromas, it also keeps other secrets that make it feel extra special. Here are some of them.

Committed to the environment

Something that Pischán has been doing since its 4 years of experience is to maintain a 0KM philosophy, which means that all its dishes are made with ingredients acquired from the town of Cobá and its surroundings. And in fact, the restaurant has implemented a small orchard where fruits are grown.
