Here is a nice little sweet treat to try in Playa Del Carmen. We love little stories like this. Rollito Dulce has a cute storefront on 2nd Street and is run by a very nice couple. Be sure to put this on your places to visit when you are out walking or want something sweet (and guess what? it is vegan too!).
The Rollito Dulce Story
This story is short and sweet! There once was a couple from Hungary that moved to Playa Del Carmen. They wanted to start a small business here. Their names are George and Agi. In the summer of 2014 they opened Rollito Dulce. This sweet treat come from the Transylvania part of Europe. The name is actually “KÜRTÖSKALÁCS” but it might just be easier to call it Rollito’s. They have the only machine in Mexico that can make these treats. You can go an meet them there. English is spoken.
How are the Rollito Dulce made?
First the dough is made fresh each day. It has to go through stages of proofing (rising and resting the dough). Then the dough is put on hard wood rollers and baked in a special oven. In the photo above behind George, you can see the small silver oven. Then they are covered with different toppings. When you want one you can choose things like Nutella, jam, or caramel to have swirled on the inside.
It is an art form to make enough for the day and predict how many customers they will have because they make everything fresh and they don’t last. So every time you are getting something made with love and is fresh.
When you order on they heat it briefly so it is nice and soft and ready to get a nice coating on the inside.
The price is 40 pesos or 50 pesos depending on what one you get. When you go to eat it, it pulls part like a coiled snake and it makes it easy to eat.
