Each month Yucatan Today visits a restaurant in order to describe what it has to offer. This is not a review; it is a summary of the menu, service, ambience, and opening hours.
Amaro Restaurant is a wonderful treat for first-time visitors, and continues to please those who return time after time, delighted by the delicious vegetarian and international cuisine.
To the sound of trova guitar, the flavors, aromas, colors, and breezes swirl around, all contributing to this unique space.
The menu offers numerous vegetarian dishes, with and without dairy products, as well as specialties with chicken and fish, fresh juices, wines, beers, and a varied bar list.
The cocktail list includes a Margarita Yucateca (with cilantro and habanero), Coctel Maya (chaya with tequila); and there are also some divine alcohol-free cocktails: Piñada, Ticket to Fly Amaro, Conga, and Long Island Amaro.
The menu boasts an excellent salad variety, including Amaro salad (red pepper, tomato, onion, carrot, lettuce, avocado, and corn); chicken and chaya salad; and beet salad, among others. The yummy appetizers include delicious Argentinian turnovers, Nachos Amaros, and ajillo mushrooms.
Vegetarian options include eggplant Meshe: breaded eggplant stuffed with grated vegetables, and cheese fondues, bathed with k’ool (soft white Yucatecan sauce) and served with rice. There is also eggplant curry, enchiladas, stuffed squash, and veggie shishkebab. There are both soup and cream of chaya, as well as cream of squash.
But Amaro is not just vegetarian any more! They have an ample selection of meat and seafood dishes, including a mixed shishkebab of chicken and arrachera, and chimichurri salmon.
There are pasta dishes including Bolognese lasagne, and their regional cuisine includes Cochinita Pibil, Panuchos, and other options. And for something completely different, there are chaya and onion tarts. Love pizza? Try the Pizza Amaro, with red pepper, tomato, onion, basil oil, ham, mushrooms, olives, and cheese, or the famous avocado pizza.
And for the perfect finishing touch to your meal, there is not only fudge with ice cream, but also crepes flambé with orange and Cointreau, or Kahlua and caramel crepes flambé…mmmmm!!!!
Amaro offers a serene and inviting ambience, situated in a grand casona dating from the 18th century whose historical value is that it was the birthplace in 1787 of Andrés Quintana Roo, important Mexican figure and husband of the great revolutionary Leona Vicario.
Celebrating 24 years, Amaro feeds the body with delicious food and feeds the spirit with vibrant culture. Here you will find visual arts displays, poetry, theater, and contemporary trova music.
