At Holbox in Mercado La Paloma, the seafood sparkles with megawatt brightness, Chef Gilberto Cetina taking inspiration from traditional Yucatan and other regional Mexican cuisines to craft a menu that showcases the very best the ocean has to offer. Yup, the ceviches, tacos, tortas, tostadas and cocteles here all brim with bold, brilliant flavor, but it’s the tasting menus served (in better times) up at the counter that’ll really blow you away—think octopus with almond pipian, pickled onions and caramelized pumpkin seeds or ‘callos al carbon’, live Maine diver scallops grilled over mesquite and plated up with fried frills, grilled roes and salsa X’catic. It’s here that Gilberto has room to play and experiment with his own unique take on whole fish cookery and in this little book these recipes—along with all the rest of what makes this market masterpiece so very special—are given the airtime they thoroughly deserve. So, what are you waiting for? Get in now and catch this one while you can!
