The name (pronounced “shnee pek”) refers to the runny nose–inducing habanero salsa, but the truth is everything here is so flavorful you won’t need it. Must-haves include Yucatecan specialties like cochinita, rich pork cut by pickled onions served with rice, beans and housemade tortillas, and papadzules, tortillas stuffed with egg and topped with sprightly pumpkin-seed sauce. If the relleno negro tacos are on offer, get them—the shredded pork-chicken-beef mixture is immersed in a midnight-black sauce with throat-tickling heat and endless flavor.
