  1. We were there early today for the 1st time. We enjoyed our lunch. Simple but tasty. We had a campechana (cocktail with a bit of everything), which we liked. We then shared a camaron + pulpo a la pimienta. Great stuff.

    Had a fun chat with Sergio.

    1. I'm in Guadalajara hermano, but thanks for the initiative.Did you have the pescado zarandeado?

        Actually went by myself and had an order or mariscos diablo. Well just 1/2 an order, after I had scarfed on a full basket of chips. Took the other 1/2 home and ate it a few hours later over some white rice.. muy sabrosito..

          Hey, I was there with some friends yesterday about the same time. They were visiting and I dragged them out for a snack. Was that you sitting on the side closest to the restrooms?

          We were the two couples and one kid in the middle row of tables. There was only one other party there and it looked like they were friends or family with the owners.

            snack?? I think that you had changed tables while the plates were piling up.. Yes that was me. Nice spot huh..

              Two couples and a three year old sharing four dishes which had a dozen shrimp each, beers, chips, salsa and tortilas. Yeah, I'd call that a snack in the middle of the afternoon. <grin> My wife and I order that much for just the two of us. Besides we dragged the extra table over only because the serving dishes were big, ha! What we had was perfect for visiting with old friends.

              Heck that didn't even count snacking on Angel Maid, Mexican pastries and then followed up by BBQ for dinner.

              Sorry to have missed your posting. Would have liked to have said hi at least. I live within easy walking distance so it would have been easy enough if I was around and had been online.
