The food here is just amazing. The chicken was very tasty, and I enjoyed having the egg mixed in. Something I have had never had before!! The sauce was good, but the spiciness definitely increased as you kept eating it! I could eat this everyday!!

Chichen Itza is my favorite place to eat in Mercado La Paloma. Their dishes are straight from the Yucatan Peninsula and their juicy cochinita pibil, whether served as a taco or wrapped in a palm leaf, is the best you'll find in LA. Their traditional juices like guanabana are tasty and sweet with no added sugar. If you go at lunchtime, expect a line but don't fear as it moves quickly.

You are just too kind, Michael! Thanks so much for the kind words. Hope to see you soon. -Gilberto

This may be one of a kind in LA. Its Yucatan cuisine but they are trying to fight the health problems East LA is facing. They use stuff like bean tamales and shredded turkey to keep things healthy. Its a pretty good spot. Parking is pretty bad.

Thanks for spreading the word about us, Michael! Glad you enjoy our food and support the use of healthy ingredients in our cooking. I know the parking can be frustrating sometimes, but that's unfortunately out of our control. I hope you'll come back and dine with us again soon! -All the best, Gilberto

My favorite Mexican-Yucatan restaurant in LA. Don't let the cafeteria decor of the mercado fool you. Service is fast friendly. Definitely recommend any of the appetizers, pollo asado, and cochinita pibil.

Great food and great ambiance. I've tried several of their dishes. Just love their carnitas tacos. They're just perfect flavoring.
Response from the owner - in the last week
You can never go wrong with carnitas, Esperanza! Happy to hear that you've tried and loved so many great dishes here. Love to see you back again soon! -Gilberto

This gem of an eatery is a gift to LA's Mexican palate. A best kept secret to some, a food haven where you'd least expect it, Chichen Itza is located in Central LA, just east of USC's campus, at Mercado La Paloma, a dynamic and vibrant modern marketplace and community space. This restaurant is, to me, the highlight of the small businesses and eateries they have to offer. As an LA Native and lover of Mexican cuisine, these fresh, soulful, carefully prepared offerings are beyond my expectations. A perfect balance of flavor, refreshment, and richness, it's a style of Mexican cuisine you'll rarely get a chance to experience. One of my favorite eats in town.

The food is amazing, the owner and Chef Gilberto is a very humble sweet man. Fave dish-Pollo asado plate.

This is a really unassuming restaurant crammed into a marketplace near USC and the DMV. With a small counter at the front where you order and take your food to a small table, what it lacks in ambience it more than makes up for in delicious, flavorful and unique food. There's nothing else quite like it, and you simply have to try their cochinita pibil to believe it.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Glad our flavorful dishes make up for the small space we're in, Heather! Thanks for recommending the cochinita pibil — it's definitely one of our top sellers. We're all about serving up delicious and authentic Mexican food, so it's great hearing we knock it out of the park for you every time. Hope to see you again soon! -Take care, Gilberto
