eating in: Cozumel, Mexico

Oh, hi there.

To give you a visual, I am sitting on the couch, wearing a pair of Soffe shorts.  You know, those soft cotton way too small shorts that were just all the rage when we 20 somethings were in middle school?

I didn't even know I still owned a pair, but it is amazing what you can find when absolutely everything you own is in the dirty clothes pile.

So here I am... in my Soffee shorts, catching up on what Bethenny Frankel has been up to lately.  Oh, come on.  Admit it... she's hilarious and I'll be the first to admit that I'm hooked on Bethenny Ever After.  If you are not, start watching so we can be on the same page.

But no matter what I'm wearing or what I'm watching, it is all a bit of a blur.  My mind is still floating its way through that little beach up there.  Sitting underneath a hut and sipping a margarita.

My unbelievably kind and sweet parents sent Mr. Hungry and me on a cruise as a graduation present for the both of us.  Mr. Hungry graduated from law school in December and took the bar two weeks ago.

Gosh, did we need a little vacay.  I totally agreed with them when they said that I needed a graduation present too. Three and a half years of supporting your husband through law school is present worthy in my book.

We were in Cozumel for the day and this being our fourth trip to this place, I deemed it about time for me to give you my expert opinion on where to eat.

You are in Mexico... we will be eating Mexican!

Let's start with fajitas.  If you are looking for the best fajitas in all the land, check out La Choza.  
Oh man, everything about this place is legit.  But I still dream about the fajitas.

This is what you need...
Fajitas Mixtas (shrimp, beef & chicken) 
Classic Margarita  

You will love the sauce that comes with the chips.  If you love it as much as my father did a few years ago, you can go home with a bottle of the stuff.  He swears it lasted him for years.

Next up, let's go with the freshest seafood around at La Mission

This is what you need...
Ceviche Mixtos with Fish & Shrimp

Side of Avocado

Sol Beer  
(recommendation from our waiter Miguel... perfect combo)

Optional Addition:  Queso Fundido

Great mariachi and if you're lucky, you just might get to don a sombrero for part of your meal.

La Choza!  The very top of my list in lovely Cozumel.
La Mission!  A close second, but skip the fajitas and go with the fresh fish and seafood.


  1. Congrats to your husband! And such a great present...

  2. haha, I love Bethenny Ever After too! (but rarely admit it) She is too funny. I am bookmarking this post in hopes that I one day end up in Cozumel and can eat at La Choza.

  3. This is so weird. I have only been to Cozumel once and I ate at La Choza. You are right. It is so so good. My husband and I have often talked about how it was the best Mexican we have ever had.

  4. Oh gosh, I had so many of those Soffe shorts. HaHaHaHa!

  5. I am feeling like we are more alike all the time. Is that weird? lol. I had so many Soffe shorts and Bethenny Ever After is my secret addiction. Cozumel looks amazing.
