Need to impress a secretly admired someone with a Homecooked, Authentic, Gourmet Mexican meal? Then Cheen-huaye on Biscayne is the perfect place!

Cheen-huaye offers Southern Mexican cuisine particular to the Yucatan, and actually means “Only Here” in Mayan. I have been there several times, and the tacos and tostadas were always moist, seasoned perfectly, and just the right amount of food.

The red wine

has a particular flavor original to the restaurant, which finishes with a hint of cinnamon… it sounds funny, but actually works.

My favorite dish is the

– a classic Yucatecan dish, tastes just like a classic baked and simmering pork dish that a grandmother would cook… tender pork marinated in recado rojo (almost like a Mexican paprika thin sauce), served over plantain leaves and covered with shredded marinated red onions – absolutely delish!

The flautas are moist, intricately seasoned and authentically flavored.

What I LOVE is that if you are looking for a really spicy kick (sometimes you have to live a little) the chef prepares a homemade marinated habanero pepper that is out of this world! Perfect on any of the dishes offered (except for the banana icecream enchiladas).
