Late night eats could be a hit or miss, luckily for me and my husband we found our go to place for Cochinita Pibil at Blue Pointe Grill. I've had my eye on this place for some time now but I just haven't made it over to that area of Playa and this night I was determined. I didn't let finding an unsure parking spot deter me, I was getting my seafood tostada! Well, what I thought was a tostada was actually the Calamari taco so I tried it along with the Cochinita Pibil Taco. My husband ordered the Beer Battered Fish Taco and the Cochinita Pibil Taco. He enjoyed his fish taco and I definitely will return to have the calamari taco as well. I'm secretly hoping they add Pulpo (Octopus) tostadas to the menu or the owners see this blog post.....that would make this place heaven for me! We both agreed the Cochinita Pibil was delicious and comparing quantity and quality to the price of the tacos, it's worth it!
The small outside dining restaurant is run by a husband and wife team from Minnesota, Miguel, and Nicole, with little ones running around. I find it charming and endearing and typical of a small family run business. Nicole stated they did not want to go to sleep and I jokingly said: "put them to wash dishes, they may not wash them but it will keep them busy and you'll have future dishwashers". Hey, everyone starts somewhere!
The mosquitoes were fierce this night and I usually carry repellent with me but I didn't have it on me. I noticed the owner brought a can of repellent out per the request of another customer and I jumped in on that! As I mentioned it was late and this night they close at 11 and it was only the 2 of them so I assumed they sent the wait staff home.
Everything is made to order so expect longer wait than normal but well worth it. There was one other table they attended and then another customer showed up so they do get those late night customers. I couldn't help but to peek over at the table next to us and notice that they had ordered the T-bone steak, oh boy.....guess what I'm having next time! They have burgers on the menu as well and there are many good reviews about them so if you're craving a burger and your other half wants a steak or a taco, this is the place to go.
There is something for everyone!
