Can’t argue with what’s recommended but we love all the fresh bivalve preparations—the giant surf clams en concha or the blood clams. Def things you can’t get in chi town .

Second the blood clams. Just make sure that the limes are not bitter before using them. I ruined my plate in the past bc of this.

Aguachile is my favorite thing there followed by the smoked kanpachi taco, but I think the cocteles are pretty special too (and overlooked). Looking at the spread of recs tho I think the bottom line is that Holbox rules.

Where’s the second bang tho???

Me and u eat the same. We did the shrimp aguachile (shout-out to those who had recommended it–the heads are amazing) and then a smoked kanpachi taco each. Then we went over to Sapp for jade noodles, then Northern Thai Food Club for larb and a papaya salad, then Awan for their ice cream. He had an early resy at Rustic Canyon, so he wanted to keep things light-ish.

Food was great. I didn’t ask for his favorites, but the guy particularly devoured the tacos and the jade noodles.

Ugh I recommended the blood clams but we didn’t pull the trigger. I’ll snag them next time I’m there though!
