Best sandwiches in Cancun...well in our opinion!

For most readers that saw the title to this blog post, and thought of Tycoz you'd most definitely have to be familiar with Cancun.

Tycoz started as a small restaurant in el centro. They serve all sorts of sandwiches, and they are very reasonalby priced for the quality. I don't know for sure, but the only other Tycoz at the time was also in the Zona Hotelera across from the Presidente Hotel. Therefore, tourists and locals were able to eat these tasty little sandwiches. I lived in Cancun about 8 years ago or so, and those were the only two Tycoz in town. Currently they are EVERYWHERE. They have grown by 200%, or more. There are Tycoz Express next to Oxxo's, Pemex's, everywhere. LOL.


My brother who is visiting Cancun for only his second time asked me "what about those crazy sandwiches, tycoz"? I couldn't believe he remembered as he hasn't been to Cancun in 8 years!!!

Well, it was Monday Night Football, and in our house that means all eyes glued to the TV. I already had it in my mind that there wasn't going to be any way I'd be cooking up a storm. Perfect, Tycoz it was!!!

The football games were okay, but the sandwiches were fantastic! We always order the Baguette de Pechuge de Pollo. Don't think Subway, think gourmet sandwich. These are thick slices of roasted chicken breast, some kind of magic garlic butter sauce, tomatoes, and cheese, all toasted into deliciousness. Hahaha. We usually add the jalapenos, and chipotle, but it's not for everyone. I think it's about $50 pesos or so, and that is for an entire baguette.


Do you have a Tycoz or anything similar in your city??
