@chichenitzala is a family-owned and operated restaurant serving delicious Southeast Mexican cuisine inside the Mercado la Paloma in South Los Angeles. They specialize in Yucatecan food, maintaining the authentic flavors but adding a modern twist. Their food is unique and delicious, made with fresh ingredients by renowned local chef Gilberto Cetina.
The Yucatan peninsula of Mexico has one of the country’s richest culinary heritages: a marriage of Mayan, Spanish and Lebanese recipes. Chichén Itzá brings these cultures to life through traditional dishes such as Cochinita Pibil, Papadzul, Tamales, Panuchos, Queso Relleno, Pipian de Puerco and Tikin-Xic. They offer a wide variety of appetizers, soups, sandwiches, entrees, tacos and desserts to satisfy any palate. They also offer catering for corporate meetings, weddings, USC activities and others. Located in the heart of Mercado La Paloma, a cooperative marketplace that is home to nonprofits and regional Mexican crafts and restaurants, Chichén Itzá is a refreshing change from the ordinary.

Finally made it to #ChichenItza. It was hot, but the skies made for a gorgeous background. We had an amazing guide and learned so much about Chichen and the Mayan Culture. I'm so glad we braved the heat to see this.
