They usually start with either a sopa or a cold pasta dish, a drink, Jamaica, tamarindo or such and then they have 5 specials each day to choose from. I had the best chili rellenos that I have tasted here (I'm going back next Wednesday in the morning and they are going to teach me how to make them) They were filled with a beef mixture that had cubes of potatoes, carrots and chaote, perfectly cooked. Their pozole de pollo was also the best. My husband has had a beef stew type of dish that reminded us of goulash only with Mexican spices and they had a pork dish that was so delicious we went back on another day to order it but it wasn't on the menu that day. The owners are a lovely husband and wife team and many of their family work there. It is always very busy and they even do delivery. They served breakfast but the main meal begins at 1:00 PM.
We happened upon this place on our way back from the beach and for those willing to go a little off the beaten path this is a real find.
Thanks for the heads up! This is the sort of place I love to eat at!
The stew - was it like a carne guisada or something?
