Vacationing in Mexico doesn’t mean you'll want to eat Mexican food at every meal or even every day. Well, you’re in luck because Cancun is home to countless restaurants that serve international food for all budgets.
Asian food is especially popular with visitors and locals, and there are many options in both the Hotel Zone and downtown, many of which are owned and operated by Asian expats and their families. You’ll find all of your old favorites on the menu, plus dishes with a Mexican twist. Japanese is king, but there are also Thai and Chinese options.
At Thai in Plaza La Isla in the Hotel Zone you can dine in romantic private cabañas. Sit at a Teppanyaki Table at Mikado in the Marriott CasaMagna, which is also home to the elegant SaSi Thai. Yamamoto on Uxmal Avenue is the oldest Japanese restaurant in town, and it’s still going strong. Hong Kong IS Chinese food in Cancun, it even has a whole shopping plaza named after it. Silk is an Asian fusion option in the Hotel Zone in the ME hotel.
Try one (or more) of these Asian restaurants when you are in Cancun, don’t worry, Mexico won’t mind.
