  El Fogon II
by Dabs

I had seen El Fogon recommended several times on Playa del Carmen websites, missed it on our first visit so I made sure we tried it on our 2nd visit (Dec 2004). It's a little off the beaten path and frequented mostly by locals but since the Avenidas (avenues) go in increments of 5, it's only 5 blocks from 5th Avenue where most of the tourists eat.

Favorite Dish: We tried their speciality dish of tacos al pastor, chorizo tacos and queso fundido con chorizo

Address: Avenida 30 at calle 6
Price Comparison: least expensive
