Five of us recently ate lunch at the newly opened Mi Casa Es Tu Casa, situated on highway 3 across from the old Coopatenas supermercado parking lot. The building used to be a hamburger stand.
I'm sorry I did not get the name of the owner - he's nice and affable. I understand he is from Northern California. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and closes at 9:00 pm.
As soon as we were seated, we were served complimentary large fried tortillas accompanied by four different salsas, each one varying in hotness and all good. At the moment, the restaurant does not have a liquor license but is planning to get one soon. An icy cold beer would go really well with this kind of food.
I ordered the shrimp burrito - it was excellent. The portion sizes certainly are generous. The Aztec soup was pronounced very good as well. You must try the homemade vanilla and macadamia nut ice cream with caramel sauce - so creamy!
Total cost for five lunches - including four sodas, a coffee and four ice creams - 23,000 colones ($46). All of us agreed we would be going back here soon.
