Here’s a chance to sample the offerings from chefs you have been putting off visiting. At least 150 restaurants will offer special $99 dishes for Mérida Restaurant Week beginning Monday, Feb. 29.
Restaurants ranging from Los Almendros to La Recova have signed up. Fast food chains such as Burger King have also arranged specials for these seven days. See whole list here.
