Though they won’t be leaving the market proper, owner Gilberto Cetina says that the company will be embracing a seafood angle in their cooking. That means starting up an entirely new stall near the original, operating under the name Holbox, where the team can prepare a variety of Caribbean seafood specialities like conch and dogfish, without losing flavors like habanero and achiote peppers, true backbones of Yucatan cooking.
The plan, says the Weekly, is for Holbox to rotate a menu of ten or so dishes at at time, serving them all from a small seafood stand that offers counter seating. Those plans are in motion as of right this moment, which currently puts the exciting new Holbox on a path to arrive sometime in February.
