The Kinich restaurant (solar face) was born in 1992 from the hand of Miriam Azcorra Rejón de Romero with the desire to spread the traditional Yucatecan food, something that she has undoubtedly achieved over the years. El Kinich is a gastronomic reference not only in Izamal, but in the Peninsula.

Kinich restaurant groups both local and foreign and national tourists. The enclosure is built in a colonial-style house with a large covered patio that accommodates 150 guests. There is an area inside the restaurant where you can see the cooks making the traditional tortillas by hand, delicious by the way.
