TULUM, Q. Roo — Before opening Safari in 2015, owner Luis Aguilar commanded the kitchen at Manhattan taco chainlet Tacombi.
Now back on home turf, Aguilar has opened an outdoor restaurant along Tulum’s hotel-dotted beachside strip equipped with a vintage 1971 silver Airstream, which he uses as a kitchen.
Here, the chef is serving a concise menu of what he calls “campfire food,” since most dishes which require heat are cooked on a small wood-fired pit beside the vehicle.
While the menu might read a bit like Mexican fusion (think yuca truffle fries, creme brulee), the tacos here — like the pork pastro — are some of the best in the area.
Alongside, opt for a variety of fresh juices (which can be spiked with mezcal), craft beer, and a slew of house cocktails.
