A truly unforgettable vacation begins and ends with an incredible culinary/drink experience – and of course is consistently filled with them throughout a trip! Did you even have a good vacation if you do not return home with a plethora of memories that make your mouth water? Food consumed and drinks sipped on throughout a getaway set the whole tone.
Grand Residences Riviera Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Mexico is one resort in particular that fully understands the art of a culinary adventure. Sun-filled days are enjoyed with refreshing drinks in hand and an array of yummy menu items to dig into poolside, on the beach or at the onsite restaurants – Flor de Canela, El Faro Grill and Heaven Beach Bar. Unique and customizable dining and drink experiences make it hard to decide what to indulge in first. For instance, should you join the weekly cooking class on Wednesday afternoon or take advantage of Oceanside views while digging into fresh ceviche at Heaven Beach Bar? Of course there’s always the option to indulge in both!
Taco Tuesdays will never be the same once you’ve experienced the freshly cut carne asada, grilled in front of you veggies, assortment of toppings and cheeses and array of sauces at El Faro Grill each week. Of course an endless supply of guacamole quite literally tops it all off. Speaking of avocados, one of the unique dishes that have become a must-try at the restaurant is their avocado soufflé. This decadent dessert is a fluffy pillow of avocado with the perfect amount of chocolate directly in the middle – it will be sure to leave your mouth watering at the memory!
A wide range of different cultural culinary experiences are consistently offered at the resort. Themed menus at El Faro Grill transport diners to classics associated with countries such as Italy, France and more. The weekly bar-b-q held on the beach is a must try! For those looking to stick to dishes representative of the surrounding Riviera Maya area, Flor de Canela is set to exceed all expectations. Favorited dishes include beef barbacoa flautas, tuna tostadas and more.
Some of the unique drink experiences offered include tea services (held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) overlooking the open waters. Guests are able to choose from four different flavors of tea, an assortment of cakes, traditional sandwiches, macarons and more while being guided through the experience by an onsite tea sommelier.
