BT, one of our favorite restaurants on Cozumel, and the oldest, Casa Denis, serves them this way: Yucatan is minced pork chop, served on softshells with pickled onions, beans and other condiments. What they call the Mayan pork taco is, as far as I can tell, Cochinita pibil, long-cooked pork that's shredded and served with condiments. Any of the other taquerias and places back in the 'hood also have their various recipes and styles.

What a fantastic experience to have traveled so much of the mainland and to have sampled all of the cuisine, I'm envious!

However, I have no intention of trying eyeball or brain tacos (which are also offered at various places....)
