Super Carnes HC de Monterrey

Calle 1 S. , between 20th and 25th Av.
Playa del Carmen , Quintana Roo , Mexico

A local institution in Playa del Carmen, Super Carnes is a small, open-air restaurant known for its grilled steak. The unassuming space is decorated with plastic furniture, and although the restaurant plays to tourists with piñatas and mariachi music, the food is authentically Mexican. Supplied by ranches in the Monterrey region, the hand-cut steaks are served with grilled chiles, fresh avocado, and baked potatoes, as well as a basket of corn tortillas. Other specialties include the tacos de arrachera (skirt steak marinated in beer, vinegar, garlic, and onion) and the homemade horchata, a traditional beverage made with rice and cinnamon.
