Stopped by for lunch today, I had the gracious owner-Angel curate a menu degustation. The Yucatan cooking style is quite different from the other Mexican restaurants I’ve encountered in LA; reminds me more of Cuban food. Additionally turkey is apparently a popular protein in the Yucatan region.
Salbute is a freshly made tortilla that is fried and puffs up. A Panucho is a tortilla that is griddled that traditional way, but as soon as it puffs, it’s pulled and cut to create a pocket. You fill the pocket with beans and a slice of hard boiled edd and then fry it. In Yucatan, you buy tortillas everyday. you either ask for just the masa to make Salbutes at home or the Tortillas de Panucho which come pre cut
