Mexican cuisine

Mexican cuisine from the Yucactán Penninsula

From the beautiful seaside towns to the vast tropical forests, Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is a region of rich cultural heritage and fascinating history. But there’s another aspect of the Yucatan that we, at La Posada & Felix’s Cantina, are passionate about: its unique, flavor-packed cuisine made from ancient recipes. Located in Milford, Pennsylvania, our restaurant serves authentic Mexican food, with recipes straight from Yucatan, allowing you to embark on a culinary journey without leaving your table.

In Yucatecan cuisine, traditional Mayan ingredients fuse with European, Caribbean, and other Mexican influences, leading to a unique gastronomic melange. Yucatan’s food is notably distinct from what many consider “Mexican cuisine.” Staples like axiote (achiote), chaya, and naranja agria are specific to the region and are responsible for the unique flavors found in our dishes.

Cochinita Pibil, the king of Yucatan foods, is one such delicacy. This beloved dish is made with marinated cochinita (suckling pig), wrapped in banana leaves and slow-roasted underground in an oven called a pib. The result is a tender, flavorful dish that’s a must-try for meat lovers. Alternatively, for those who prefer poultry, we offer Pollo Pibil, prepared in the same traditional way but using chicken instead of pork.

For our vegetarian patrons, we serve a spin on the Mexican classic “Al Pastor”. By replacing the protein with cauliflower, what you are left with is an incredibly flavorful, yet guilt free entree that would satisfy even the meat lovers of the world.

We also invite you to indulge in our selection of traditional beverages from Yucatan. We hand make our “Horchata” which is a sweet rice drink. Another local favorite is Agua de Tamarindo, made with the tart, tangy, and sweet tamarind fruit. These beverages add another dimension to the Yucatan dining experience, complementing the array of flavors found in our dishes.

At La Posada & Felix’s Cantina, we are proud to bring a slice of Yucatan to Pennsylvania. Our commitment to authenticity and quality ensures that every dish served echoes the rich tradition and distinctive flavors of Yucatan cuisine. Whether you are a long-time lover of Mexican food or curious to explore, we look forward to welcoming you on this gastronomic adventure. Buen provecho!
