Description

LA Weekly's Description

From its sleekly rustic dining room, Chichén Itzá is devoted to the cooking of the Yucatán, the citrusy, fragrant, sometimes searing-hot cuisine of the Mayas. It's probably the most genteel restaurant in the Westlake district, favored by politicians and gourmands from the nearby Mexican Consulate, and one of the best places in town to taste regional Mexican cooking -- for Yucatecan snacks like panuchos, vaporcitos and the Lebanese-Yucatecan kibi, as well as for the cuisine's most famous dish, cochinito pibil, which is rubbed with spice, wrapped in banana leaves and cooked until it practically collapses under its own weight. Tikin-xic, seared sole fillets coated with a reddish achiote paste, is also worth seeking out. I liked the restaurant's original location, the still-wonderful stand in the Mercado La Paloma complex near USC, so much that I actually booked an air ticket to Mérida after my first couple of meals there. The newer, more elegant restaurant is even better. See full review.
