We now have a nice delicatessen and market on the malecon, Chiara Maha. Chiara Maha is owned and operated by a woman from Milan, Italy, Chiara. She has been here for 16 years, and is a part of the community here. She is also raising a daughter here in Mahahual, and she says it is a great place to raise children.
Chiara Maha has been open for five months, and it is located right off the malecon in the YaYa beach complex, next to the Costa Maya Real Estate offices.
Chiara Maha sells a wide range of deli meats, cheeses, and products. They also have a line of coffees, pastries, and desserts. Chiara also sells a number of Mennonite products like organic butter, eggs, honey, and coconut oil.
They sell meats and cheeses by the gram. They carry meats like, ham, pastrami, salami, bratwurst, chicken, and even steaks. She has rib-eye, t-bone, and New York strip steaks, which are very hard to get here in Mahahual. They even stock very hard to find stuff like sauerkraut and herbs and spices.
They also have some seafood like shrimp, octopus, calamari, and even smoked salmon. Also you can get fresh deli sandwiches there, I got a pastrami and cheddar sandwich the other day, and it was great. There is also a wide selection of different cheeses at Chiara Maha, my favorite is the cheddar cheese. There are other cheeses like Parmesan, brie, cheddar, mozzarella, Gouda, in stock, and the prices are listed by the gram.
She also carries fresh pasta like ravioli and fettuccine, and sauces. These are hand-made by locals. They also have complete meals like lasagna, and other Italian favorites, that you can take home and heat up for yourself. Chiara tries to keep the deli up to date with the latest products, and she will take special orders. You can also eat in, she has tables out front, and she even rents bikes.
Chiara is very friendly and open to suggestions. Her prices are very reasonable for Mahahual, and she has all the hard to get quality deli meats and cheeses. The business hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10am to 6pm. She will also deliver some products. To get in touch with Chiara you can get her on WhatsApp at 983-138-2564. You can also check out her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/chiara.andrade.39
So if you are in Mahahual are looking for some deli meats and cheeses, or other deli products, go by and see Chiara Maha, and she what she has. She will also order anything you may need, if she does not have it. I finally have a place where I can get cheddar cheese in Mahahual.
