food is where the HARTWOOD is…

sun and sand

water and waves

bikinis and sun tan lotion

everything has its side kick…. personally -> travel, food and drink can make the most  beautiful threesome

i would not call myself a foodie but i do love  food, and   a few years back when i started to develop food sensitivities i thought i may very well starve to death…over-reacting to the stress of not being able to just grab food on the run, or eat at any old  dive …gives good reason to panic

anyways…now years later i have spent much time researching ….eating food and getting  sick…and testing new recipes..ditto…i think i have formed a semi-truce between food and my pains and belly woes.

down in mexico…. life is good…the sun shines most everyday, the sea forces laughter to bubble  out of you and the food….is heavenly

hartwood is a fairly new addition to the tulum circuit…one year….and being jungle side….most here say its like swimming upstream to stay afloat…..eric and his crew have overcome such superstitions and have made jungle side the new “it” side

who's afraid of the jungle?

wood powered kitchen

i have been very fortunate and thankful for being invited to experience a slice from yummy heaven, a few times -> gluttony 🙂

Eric’s wood burning powered kitchen…a new and already copied concept on the beach interestingly enough….and his use of fresh local products he delivers a creative array of dishes that change nightly. 

fresh beet salad w/ crazy creamy goat cheese and barley salad w/ apple slices

amerICAN thanksgiving

yes that is good old fashion’d turkey accompanied with squash, rye bread stuffing and baked purple sweet potato <- too sweet for my liking.

skirt steak with crab infused mash'd potatoes

kitty eye's the grouper

sugar cane mojitos

served in a mason jar…kitty loves..the price 110 pesos ->not so much ):

although this place is way beyond my pocket book…on a regular basis that is….its gorgeous, great staff, fun, creative tasty food and drinks, and it just feels so comfortable, mellow and light.


lovely servers

Valentine meets kitty


i ♥ this place so hard x
