That would be Tepoznieves

So glad I read about Kaxpa here. It was so good. Ate there last Friday.

We had the Reina Pepiada, which may have been one of the top three things, if not the best bite I had the whole trip. The Arepa was light and fluffy, the chicken and avocado perfect and a great compliment to the hot sauce provided for the table.

We also had a Patacon Mixto. The mixture of flavors (salty, savory, a little sweet) and the crunchy texture of the plantain with the chewy texture of the bottom tostone that absorbed all the sauce was delicious.

Sad we didn't get to go back but there are so many other places to try.

The owner is a gem as well. Katie and I cant give this place a high enough rating. It is a winner. We also really like Pirata Pollo.

We've been to Kaxapa Factory twice and we absolutely LOVE it. The food is outrageously good, different than anything we've had, and the man that runs the place is the most delightful, happy and sweet person you will ever meet. The place doesn't have much in the way of atmosphere, so we prefer to go there for lunch instead of dinner. Try the Soursop (guanabana) beverage. YUM. Oh, and the brownie and ice cream dessert is delish!

"Too Much" and "Ice Cream" do not belong in the same sentence say nothing of the same post

Is this place still around? I wandered up 10th between 15th and 25th and it was nowhere to be seen.
