Veracruz Restaurants

Gran Café de la Parroquia

Fodor's Review

A leisurely stint here in the sun, watching ships unloading their cargo, is what Veracruz is all about. This family restaurant was so popular it split off into side-by-side establishments run by two brothers. The menus are nearly identical, both serving renowned traditional lechero. The milk is flamboyantly poured from silver jugs at a great height by a server. Visit the Gran Café closest to Hotel Emporio for classic picadas y gordas (puffy, deep-fried tortillas

with beans, onion, mole, and cheese). Try for a sidewalk table under the arches, if you can withstand the competing marimbas and the appeals of women selling crafts.
