Downtown bakery Mexican food
This little spot churns out homestyle Mexican food and a few baked goods and has occupied the same spot at 69 1st. Ave. and 4th. Street since 1989. The owner graduated from elementary school across the street and has planted himself in the neighborhood ever since. There are three sticky tables and a counter with 4 barstools in which to eat. Pictures of Mayan goods and Mexican figures provide the only decoration here, and this spot makes no pretense about anything other than the food which is freshly made to order, cheap and good. There is an extensive menu including many breakfast burritos, tacos and platters and I already plan a breakfast excursion shortly. There are a few specials per day and mine was chicken chipotle which is pictured for $8. A large burrito arrived slathered with homemade guacamole and crema(Mexican sour cream). Spicy chipotle chicken, and black beans in a fresh flour tortilla. Que rico!
