Most beach vacation destinations are known for their active nightlife, but not usually for their cuisine. In some vacation locales, you would have a difficult time finding tofu, curry or pesto on any restaurant menus, let alone in one single restaurant. Fortunately that’s not a problem here in Playa del Carmen.
Among the many stand-out restaurants near Playa del Carmen is Babe’s Noodles and Bar. Located just off 5th Avenue, Babe’s is owned by a Swedish couple with a wide variety of culinary interests. Babe’s offers contemporary Asian-European cuisine and specialty Thai noodles. The bar is known for freshly prepared blueberry daiquiris, mojitos, margaritas and smoothies. In business since 2000, their meals are fresh, tasty, affordable and, if requested, vegetarian.
A few of the great dishes from Babe’s Noodles and Bar include:
- Goat Cheese Roll Appetizers: with passion fruit sauce, honey and walnuts
- Pesto: vegetables, parmesan, basil, olive oil and egg noodles, with your choice of chicken or shrimp.
- Swedish Meatballs: on mash potatoes, with pickled cucumbers and cream sauce.
- Thai Yellow Curry: Coconut milk, vegetables and pineapple, with your choice of chicken, pork, arrachera (skirt steak), shrimp or fish. It also comes with jasmine rice or mash potatoes as a side. (Tofu can be substituted in all curry dishes).
Not far from Playa Palms, Babe’s Noodles and Bar can be found on Calle 10, between 5th and 10th Avenues. Babe’s is open from 1 p.m. to midnight, Tuesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner. They are closed on Mondays.
