Authentic Mexican Cuisine at La Laguna
We dined as a guest of the venue
On our last evening in Mayakoba, we were treated to an evening full of culinary delights at La Laguna at the Fairmont Mayakoba. La Laguna is located right on a river where families can bask in the beautiful water views. My daughter and I had a seat right on the waterfront where we could see animals frolicking in the mangroves across the water.
The minute that the menu arrived, we were in heaven. They had my favorite Mexican dish on the menu – queso fundido. We started our dinner with some queso fundido that was pure cheese bliss. It is melted Mexican cheese that is paired with warm tortillas and chile morita salsa. You must try this dish when dining at La Laguna. We also enjoyed some freshly made guacamole, chicharron style. The guacamole was made with fresh avocados, crispy bacon, serrano chile, and cotija cheese.
For the main course, my daughter ordered her favorite tacos, Al Pastor. The dish came with three tacos filled with adobo pork, caramelized pineapple, onion, cilantro and salsa verde. The tacos tasted just like her favorite Al Pastor street tacos that she loves getting whenever we are walking the streets of Tijuana.
While my daughter was enjoying her tacos, I savored every bite of the Tampiquena. Tampiquena is filet mignon paired with a mole cheese enchilada. It was served with guacamole, poblano chile-potato gratin, and a cactus salad.
We ended our dinner with the Empanadas de Plantano. The freshly made empanadas came filled with banana and Mexican cream. It was topped with a cinnamon creme anglaise and coconut ice cream. Every bite was heavenly.
There were so many things on the menu at La Laguna that we wanted to try, and I recommend planning at least two meals at this restaurant. Reservations are available for La Laguna at the Fairmont Mayakoba with your resort concierge.
