Go Italian in Mexico!

The one thing you will find in Playa del Carmen, Mexico is diversity! This is true in many ways and most delightfully when it comes to food. Playa del Carmen has locals from all around the world. Thankfully the Italians make-up some of our diverse community and with this comes some welcomed specialty food shops. If you are looking for a taste of Italy try Sapori di Casa and Sabrina Pasteleria Italiana.

Sapori di Casa can offer typical Italian Sandwiches, Deli meats, cheeses, breads, pasta sauces, homemade and dried pastas, Italian espresso and coffee, sweets and much more. (I have been known to stop in for a dozen or more thin slices (100 grams or so) of prosciutto or mortadella and eat it before I leave the shop).

If you are having a battle with a sweet tooth, you will not be disappointed with the selection of delicious pastries at Sabrina Pasteleria Italiana! The best part of looking in the gorgeous case of sweets is that they have bite size treats (well, they are really 2 bites) which allows you to have one of many. Sabrina’s artesenal baked goods, authentic Italian bread and homemade pizzas and sandwiches and Italian coffee’s will make an impression on you.

You can visit both, Sapori di Casa and Sabrina Pasteleria Italiana in the Marketplace section of the Taste of Playa Culinary Event, November 21st 2010 or in their shops which are located  1 block from each other.
