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