An old standby at Punta Uva, Selvin's keeps limited, sometimes irregular, hours, especially in the off-season, so head out here if you're fortunate enough to be in town when it's open. (Always call ahead.) The owner, known to everyone in town as "Blanca," cooks up a menu of rondón, rice and beans, lobster, shrimp, and chicken with sweet mole sauce.
