    Wow that is cheap!

    I actually find the cost of living in Cancun to be expensive, but we are a family of 4 and probably spend money on lots of things you don't need to.

    There is a little bar/pub under (or was last time I was there) mundo joven that has pretty good service and pretty low prices. Not really close to mercado 23 however there is the place next to soberanas few blocks down from mercado23. Of course there is also I think McDonalds or Burger King a block away and subway near the bus station.. not exactly commida economica however comparable prices to stateside.

    This probably doesn't help much but I'm only really familiar with eats in PDC I usually just buy and make my food in Cancun as I'm usually a block or two away from a major shopping place and my diet is ideally seafood and vegetarian and I love fruit, (one of the reason I love mexico, my favorite foods cost the least in Mexico..)

    Good luck with finding some. I would think that most places in the tourist areas will be tourist prices due to "costs of operation"

    Some of the places closer to the end of mercado going towards the ado though were packed with locals (closer to art decosuites) not the strip malls.

    The deeper you go into Cancun, the cheaper the food gets. There is two Walmart's in Cancun (you can google map it) - the area near the 2nd Walmart, further away from downtown - has plenty of cheap eats. You can also check out the Sunday tianguis if you want an ultimate authentic/budget experience.
