Every time I visit Cozumel, Mexico I fall deeper in love. Their downtown strip on Avenida Rafael e Melgar offers tourist mucho finds from jewelry, cheeky souvenirs, and of course, tasty food! One of my favorites so far on the island is Tiki Tok Restaurant Bar.
I discovered Tiki Tok on my first visit to last year but not for the food. Actually it was for their coconuts! I LOVE coconuts. Nothing says refreshing like a big green coconut filled with coconut water. Yum. This year, the restaurant outdid itself by actually putting a face on the coconut made out of fruits. Way to jazz up the “coco frio natural”. Cute.
The server recommended the fajitas as the best item on the menu. I love it when employees are familiar with their menu. Usually in America I don’t eat fajitas, so I was interested in how delicious it would be in it’s homeland. My party got the Fajita Combo of Chicken and Shrimp accompanied by Quac, Sour Cream, and Black Beans.
In addition to the coconut water I grabbed a Strawberry Margarita Fresa. This frozen beverage was perfect for the hot day under the roof of the outdoorsy restaurant. There’s even sand seating if you want to feel like your right at the beach, even though the beach is directly across the street.
When our sizzling fajita came out I was instantly excited. The smell was inviting, the appearance enticing. I already knew what I was in stored for. Juicy chicken with tender shrimp. The guacamole was a nice chucky texture and I couldn’t ask for any more onions (love onions). The pitas were soft and the overall combination in my mouth was superb.
Next time I go to Tiki Tok I HAVE to spend more. My table got 2 margs, shared the fajita, and 2 coconuts for only $435 pesos or $36.25 US dollars. They use the same dollar symbol we do so it can look daunting at first but TRUST me, it’s worth every cent.
