About Us / Casa Maya History: Tucked in a small corner house on Hypolita Street in the ancient city of St. Augustine, Casa Maya’s chef /owners Karla and Marco Jr. Barrera have created authentic Mayan cuisine reflecting their Mexican roots on the Yucatan Peninsula.\n\nThink fresh, organic, new tastes, seasonal, and really home-made, and you have the essence of what these two talented people provide for breakfast, lunch, and weekend dinners. They search out the best seasonal organic produce and herbs, shopping many times each week to bring fresh ingredients to your table. Karla's made-by-hand marinades and sauces (ranchero, mole, tomatillo, and annato seed) are based on family traditions and recipes which have been passed down through the generations.\n\nFish comes from local fishmongers. The chef/owners visit the St. Augustine docks to pick up the day’s catch which then appears on the Casa Maya menu. Delicious fresh healthful daily specials are the rule. Unique beverages include sangria which is prepared individually by the glass combining a hibiscus flower infusion topped with melted berries and grandma’s fine Mexican hot chocolate.\n\nBreakfast offerings include fresh fruits, omelets, sweet potato pancakes, and the exceptional Apocalypto sandwich on homemade bread. Select from homemade guacamole, unusual wraps, salads, and soups for lunch at midday. Do not miss out on the soft tacos. Weekend dinner fare is fit for Mayan kings and warriors with pork and beef; the sea gods with inspired fish selections and mother earth for her vegetarian dishes. All entrees sparkle and will intrigue anyone interested in authentic Mexican cuisine.
