Papadzules are a traditional dish of the gastronomy of the Yucatán Peninsula. The name means, according to some Mayanists, the food of amo (Maya for “potato” or “food”), and dzul, (Maya for “master” or “lord,” or a person who does not belong to the popular class). Other linguists believe its name is derived from the Maya words papak (meaning, “smeared”) and zul (meaning “soaked”). In either case, it is a vegetarian, native dish with clear indigenous influences. It is a relatively simple dish that consists of corn tortillas dunked in a sauce made from squash or pumpkin seeds, and stuffed with a chopped hard-boiled egg (suitable for tacos). Finally, it is bathed in a tomato sauce with Habanero chile peppers. This dish was named as “the food of the Knights or patterns”, today one of the most representative dishes of Yucatan.
La Tradición like few others establishments, endeavors to rescue the original gastronomic legacies of Yucatán, given that the culinary variety of our State is very wide and strongly recognized in many respects. At present the Yucatecan cuisine is ranked among the best in the world in part to its high specialty in the use of indigenous herbs, and by their original processes of preparation.
