New Restaurant in Colonia

Just down the street from us at Refugio Sur #24, Cafe San Antonio has opened for breakfast and lunch. It is in a lovely big garden and you sit under the trees and umbrellas while you enjoy your meal. The lunch menu includes a soup or two, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, milanesa and a hamburger. We had lunch there this week. We found out that they have only been open three weeks and are still working out the kinks. The owner's family has owned the property for 30 years and he was in the hotel industry in DF before opening Cafe San Antonio. The food was good and we will go back again but what they need to go with that gorgeous garden setting are a few outstanding items. Or as Emeril would say, they need to knock it up another notch. BAM!

In reading your blog we realized that you lived in Rogers Park. We lived in both Evanston and Rogers Park back in the 80's. The world is even smaller in Bloggerville. Enjoyed your receipe for Ceviche.

Dear Houston girl -

Juan, I think the items were in the 40-70 peso range.
