In the morning, numerous stands at the Mercado Juárez offer the local specialty, zacahuil (a huge tamal cooked in a banana leaf). In Papantla, the zacahuil is cooked in enough liquid to be served in a bowl. Look around until you see a cook with a line of patrons -- that's where you'll get the best zacahuil.
