Pride of place belongs to Mariscos La Red ("The Net"), on Calle Las Casas at the corner of Calle Bustamante. We have eaten there three times, so far.

One is the Caldo de Mariscos, loaded with denizens of the deep, in a rich, red broth within a blazing hot black pottery cazuela.

|Filete de Pescado en Adobo|
|Fried shrimp and vegetables, too!|
|Tostadas de Jaiba|
Here's la cuenta for our latest lunch there.
Two Cervezas Bohemia, one Coctel de Camarones Grande, two tostadas de jaiba, one empanada, 1 Taco de Camarones (good, but not a favorite.), one filet de pescado en Adobo. Total, $284 pesos. About U.S. $22. What a deal.
Price: $-$$ BARGAIN!
Hours of operation: 1 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., but I recommend dining before 6 p.m. It is very popular, and later afternoons, especially on Fridays, can be very busy. There may be a wait for a table.
Gotta love the way we Mexicans service up mashed potatoes right next to rice.
My Mom would be appalled. She always thought two carbs at one meal was unthinkable. (Except for Linguine with white clam sauce, for which lots of Italian bread is called for to soak up the surplus sauce.
Just want to say I read every post, and enjoy them. A good balance of pictures and text that shows me a bit of a country I've never been to, nor are likely to. Keep on blogging :-)
Welcome to my blog, Richard. I'm pleased that you enjoy it.
