This is not Mexican food, but Aztec and Mayan pre-Colombian cult cuisine. Or at least that’s how they’re selling it up at Chilam Balam just off of Avinguda de Gaudí three blocks past that famous cathedral-thing. Now, we are not Mesoamerican historians by any means, but we don’t understand how what they cook up here could possibly be more authentic Aztec or Mayan cuisine than, say, the very simple corn tortilla plus spiced meat plus cilantro formula that La Taquería is serving. In fact, we think it’s the other way around, and would classify Chilam Balam as the perfect option if you’re feeling like some heavier Mex. Come up here for un platazo of nachos, meal-like in their proportion (7.90 Euro), loaded with chunky guacamole and way too much delicious melted cheese. Try the burrito overflowing with rich carne enchilada (6.20 Euro). They offer, of course, much more, like the menú del día that will set you back 9.80 Euro, draft Modelo included. You will leave full and happy.
