This little neighborhood restaurant is well out of Centro, but very close to where I was staying.  Which is fortunate.  Great home style cooking and hospitality. 

Sundays, while it lasts, La Bruja serves a seafood stew/soup called Chilpachole - shrimps, squid, lobster and more, all in a spicy broth.  A lot of hand labor to eat, but well worth the extra effort.  They run out early.  Best to get there before one.

My first time at La Bruja I started with a sope, totally cooked to order, followed by grouper sauted with olive butter. 

Another day I made a lunch of their queso fondido and guacamole.

2009 Update - As good as ever.  Started with a very creamy home made guacamole.  Then garlic shrimp.

2012 Update - La Bruja is still my go to place for local cooking out in the Colonias. Good home cooking.
