Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico

He has painted murals on the walls. He is a poet and has hung his work out for everyone to see. Take the time to read these short poems; some of them are quite funny. The menu is long and there is a great variety on the items offered. When I used to stay in this part of town I would come in almost daily and eat Enchiladas Huastecas. They are absolutely wonderful! The tortillas are folded into triangles, instead of rolled, and covered with green sauce and crumbly cheese. They are served with a thin steak and some of the most incredible beans I have ever had. They cost 55 pesos (US$5.50).
The seafood is always very fresh and sometimes they have great daily specials. They offer a large assortment of soups but I am pretty sure the cream soups come out of a can. If you are here on a hot day, be sure to sit under the best fan, this place can get pretty stuffy. Las Tres Huastecas is open daily 7am to 8pm and does not accept credit cards.
