Good Times at Green Verde!

Green Verde headed my list this trip of new restaurants to try during our month on Isla Mujeres.  It did not disappoint! We loved the food, service, and ambience.

After hopping in a taxi and telling the driver Green Verde, I knew the man had no clue.  He'd never heard of it.  In my bad Spanglish, I directed Medina norte de Kash Keken.  He replied, El Centro?  No, near Construrama. As I tried to point the way from the back of the cab, the passenger in the front seat fortunately got involved.  I could tell he knew the location and started giving instructions in Spanish.  Soon we pulled up in front of Green Verde.

The door was open!  Tipycal Mexican Food!  Note they're open for breakfast and dinner Thursday through Monday.  

The view peaking through the kitchen window from the sidewalk out front.

We soon found a table in the garden at the side of the restaurant.  Green Verde has outdoor seating in addition to indoor tables.  The indoor tables came in handy another night when it was pouring rain!

We were quickly served tostadas with a really good salsa, and offered cups of tequila punch gratis as we perused the menu.  

One of my absolute favorite dishes at Green Verde was the mole enchilada plate.  The sampler includes three different kinds of mole sauced (green, red, and pumpkin) enchiladas.  Yum!  I liked it so much, I ordered it again on the second trip!

Unfortunately, my cellphone photos of other dishes and the interior weren't suitable to post, but all the items we ordered were wonderful.  The steak arrachera burrito and Azteca soup were other faves on our visits!

Put Green Verde on your list!
