Pulpo Asado, etc?

Any recommendations in/around Akumal for good grilled octopus? Also chapulines (not the tiny ones). Thx!

    We had a fabulous grilled octopus in Tulum at a restaurant called Kay Nah.  Cooked over a wood fired grill.  Very nice service, delicious food and friendly staff.  I would love to upload a picture of the meal but I don't know what site to use.  We went there on a recommendation from a local and it was well worth the trip from Chan Chemuyil!

    You can get the pulpo done several ways at Cueva del Pescador and I have enjoyed all of them. I've never seen Chapulines for sale around Akumal, but have purchased them from beach vendors in Puerto Morelos. In fact I saw one walking the beach here in PM yesterday, these are about 1 inch long and have a slightly smoky, spicy flavor.

    Wag more....bark less.

    Thanks, Badger! Really enjoyed both in PV last fall- will definitely check out Cueva del Pescador. Saw your chapulines photo from PM, which got me thinking about it...
    P.S. Love ALL your food porn 👍

    Think we may have found what we're looking for re: chapulines, etc. La Perla Pixan in Playa. Also a possibility of locating a mexcal we found in Puerto last fall. Anyone have any input on La Perla?
