Tacos at “El Cangrejito”…

November 3, 2009

It’s off the charts delicious here!… I have to sit down just to talk about this place. El Cangrejito is a tiny restaurant that specializes in seafood tacos…and as a good friend says, ‘just the best, hot habanero natural sauce’.
You’ll want to take your time with this local fast food delight. Tortilla’s are hand-made and topped with the catch-of-the-day fish, delicately prepared and mixed with onions, avocados, tomatoes, salsa and cilantro. A seemingly simple amalgamation of freshness, yet so complex! Served two or four to a plate, these Yucatecan tacos are heaped with pride…and this is real love baby, real love!
While you’re enjoying lunch, you’ll want to study the eclectic décor spanning what looks like about 60 years of family memorabilia, Matadorial fame and lore. And of course while you have a few of these terrific Tacos, you’ll want to wash them down with your favorite beverage. And just to round out the afternoon, you can saunter home to Casa La Barenda just a block away from the restaurant for a long siesta—a sure-fire way to bring a smile to the day and courage to face the evening hunt for an equal or better value for dinner.
Typical of these small, great value family owned establishments, El Cangrejito is non-descript and hard to find. Good thing it’s close to the Casa! El Cangrejito is on Calle 57 #523 between 64 and 66 and is usually open serving lunch from 1 pm to 6 or 7 pm. It’s about mid-block on the north side of the street and about the only thing to look for is the brick-red colored awning.

Ahhh the life…enjoy!

P.S. Go on Tuesday just to be able to say it…’Taco Tuesday’!
