Food in Osaka: Where You Should and Should Not Eat

Food in Osaka: Did you know that as of December 2016, out of the top 18 cities with the most Michelin stars, 4 of them belong to Japan (Nara, Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo), with Tokyo taking first place (you can see the full list here)?  On top of that, Osaka is known as a huge gastronomic city, especially for street foods and cheap eats. As you can imagine, I had a long list of places I wanted to try in…

El Centro in Isla Mujeres

El Centro in Isla Mujeres

El Centro: Isla Mujere’s “downtown” is lined with many restaurants and souvenir shops. Miguel Hidalgo street from Playa Norte area down to Av. Francisco I. Madero and Av Ruesda Medina along the beach down to the ferry terminal seem to be the most touristy area with many vendors/shops and restaurants. On one of the nights, we walked down Miguel Hidalgo all the way down to a plaza (between Av. Morelos and Calle Bravo) to find a live band, food stalls,…
