Playa Del Carmen’s Skinny Bikini Potatoes

(Last Updated On: April 15, 2019)

When in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico we’re always on the hunt for new restaurants. There are quite a few to choose from but this one sounded different. We decided we needed to give it a try – particularly because of the name: Skinny Bikini Potatoes. If somehow they had found out a way to deliver on their name, we needed to know.

You have arrived – Skinny Bikini Potatoes Playa Del Carmen

Anyone who is a fan of the humble baked potato is usually really talking about all of the things that you can pile onto it. And this place does just that (so much for the skinny part, ah well).

You can choose anything from basic sour cream and butter, surf and turf, chicken fajita style –  on and on. And as it topical in Playa there were also numerous additional topping available in a squeeze bottle, including blue cheese, creamy garlic, chipotle, cilantro and a fiery hot sauce strong enough to bring tears to your eyes.skinnypotatosauces


We went with an arrachera potato – which is a marinated steak along with sauteed peppers and onions with cheddar and sour cream. Enough to keep that bikini put away in the drawer for a long time. But it was fantastic.

This place isn’t exactly off the beaten track. It’s located on 20th street just off 5th Avenue in the tourist zone.

Update: Unfortunately, this restaurant has now closed….ah well.

  1. Funny I came across this specific article, as tonight I had the STRANGEST killer craving for a loaded baked potato. And I’m not a crazy loaded potato girl, but tonight it was like those ‘tatos were speaking to me. AND THEN I READ THIS. Potato fate? I think so. So I kid you not, went to the local produce guy and just bought myself a potato… poor baked potato is about to be drowned will all sorts of anti-bikini things…

    So thank you for further inspiring me and my potato I’m about to attack 😉
