“This is the place to go if you want authentic Veracruz food w/out getting sick”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

yeah yeah, I know, you can get picadas pretty much anywhere in Veracruz as most street food vendors have them. The difference is that this place is really neat and clean, unlike your local market or the lady selling them at the corner of a busy street, who "washes" her plastic plates with the same water and rag all day long.

...but anyways... here you will be able to find authentic Veracruz food which you cannot find anywhere else in Mexico. Picadas, which are basically Aztec Pizzas, that are made of corn dough, your choice of salsa for the sauce and fresco cheese (crumbling cheese), Gorditas, Empanadas, Molletes (simply a piece of some bread similar to french bread, cut in half, smeared with beans and cheese and sometimes ham..just sinful), enchiladas and many other things that you just don't find anywhere.

It is cheap, you cannot pay enough for cleanliness and that safe feeling that you get from eating at a decent place, but this is pretty safe.

...oh, I forgot to mention that you can order any NATURAL fruit juice that you like, and when I say natural, I mean natural, different from the definition of natural of the US, which consist on a glass full of Florida's natural, or Tropicana....This ladies and gents is "Real local fruit, squeeze it in front of you" type of juice, Orange, Apple, Grapefruit, Pineaple, etc. also you can get Freshly made Chocolate milk, Strawberry and for you healthy freaks, you can make your own, they can get really fancy like "orange, celery, egg and hay" for example. Simply delicious!!!!
