I haven’t been there for thirty years, what do you all recommend for a short stay? And where can we find good marquesitas, pib x’catik, caballeros pobres, pucheros, and chancletas? Among other delicious treats.

Chaya Maya (two locations downtown) is the place for for Mayan soul food.
Pops Cafeteria is not self-consciously “tipico”, but it’s where the local businessmen go. Excellent “hot cakes” (that’s the Yucatecan term) at breakfast, but I prefer the huevos Motulanos.
Apoala is Oaxacan rather than Yucatecan, but the nicest restaurant in town. My girlfriend says, “fine dining at Olive Garden prices”.
