That’s the biggest vote of culinary confidence Yucatán has received since last week, when Mérida was voted best gourmet destination in a national readers’ poll.
The Editorial Board of Mexico Gastronomy and the National Academy of Voters, which has more than 50 members, assessed gastronomic continuity, quality of service and culinary techniques. They also evaluated the price-quality ratio and each restaurant’s emphasis on sustainable development, community initiatives, altruistic activities and support for young chefs.
Kinich’s reputation was already cemented before this prestigious award. Yucatán Today calls Kinich “the perfect restaurant in Izamal, one which also offers a magical experience.”
The “yellow city” of Izamal is, population 15,000, is one of Yucatáns two “magical towns” — pueblos magicos. The other is Valladolid.
Mérida’s Nectar, La Tradición, Hacienda Teya were also included on the list of 120 top culinary destinations.
