Feb 17, 2017 | Destinations, Yummy

                                               

 1)TACOS:


El Fogon

Tacos al Pastor (Pork tacos with pineapple)



Tacos with Chorizo and Queso




2)  ARRACHERA (Steak dinner)


HC de Monterey & El Fogon both have excellent steak dinners


3) FRESH FISH FILLETS & AWESOME CEVICHE


La Tarraya has been a local favorite for over 20 years.  Any of their fish dishes are a winner.  From fish in garlic sauce to Pescado Tikinxic—try them all;)  Winner ceviche with fresh homemade totopos (word here for tortilla chips).  For the health conscious a lot of their dishes are grilled.


4) FRUIT AND VEGGIE JUICES


El Nativo

Although this place is known for their amazing juices at very affordable prices, their lunch and dinner specials deserve to be mentioned as well.  A local favorite—I cannot stop going here whenever I need authentic meals on my nomadic budget;)


5) BEST COFFEE : Café Choux Choux


6) ITALIAN FOOD WITH FRESH HOMEMADE PASTA:


Romeo´s


7) VENEZUELAN FOOD:


Kaxapa Factory:  Breakfast, fruit juices that you have never tried like “Venezuelan Lemonade” and awesome overall menu all day.  


8) ENCHILADAS:

PikNik


9) DELICIOUS DESSERTS:

Ah Cacao (elote cake) and any of the desserts at Chez Celine.  The corn bread dessert at Kaxapa Factory is delicious too!


10) LOCAL DRINK: MICHELADA (a local favorite).  Order it anywhere!  It is not always on the menu but they will make it for you everywhere.


***BONUS:  MY FAVORITE FINE DINING EXPERIENCE: OH LA LA (Reservations required)


Buen Provecho! 


BEST TIP I CAN GIVE YOU?  Double check on the bacon situation:) Bacon here is sometimes "suspicious" and not what we know as good old fashioned crispy American bacon.
