Babe’s Noodles & Bar
Calle 10, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Babe’s Noodles & BarSince around 2000, this iconic Swedish-owned restaurant and bar, just steps off Playa’s always-packed 5th Avenue, serves up an eclectic mix of Asian-European fusion cuisine. The appetizers just might be the highlight, in iterations like a flavorful cheese in mango-mint sauce, or the Vietnamese yellowfin tuna rolls wrapped in rice paper and served with a side of spicy Asian coleslaw and nuoc cham sauce. For your main course, try the famous noodle dishes and pad thai. Vegetarians love it here, too, not least of all for the noodle and curry dishes into which tofu is happily added.
