FOOD & DRINKS:
La Cazuela M & J restaurant: Great breakfast! Very nice place with a comfortable atmosphere. Lots of old pictures on the walls and lots of cheerful colors throughout the restaurant. We sat on the small veranda overlooking Guerrero. It’s located just 2 blocks away from Hidalgo the main street in Dowtown Isla.
CAZUELA: The specialty of the restaurant is the Cazuelas, which are kind of a cross between an omelet and a soufflé. They are brought to the table in piping hot ceramic bowls. They offered many varieties. The one i had was with ham, tomato, peppers and cheese. Delicious!
We started with a fresh watermelon water – which was refreshing and delicious. Then it was on to the toston sandwich, which was chicken with onions in vinagrette on flatten fried green plantains. I enjoyed the simplicity of the dish.
This restaurant was located basically on the opposite tip of Isla from where we stayed. Took about 25 minutes in our golf cart to get to it.
