Vero’s Mexican & Seafood is by far one of the most authentic places that I’ve had the privilege to enjoy. The setting and location may not be ideal but the food is spectacular.
I’m used to good Mexican Food
Growing up in a Mexican Family my mom would make our tortillas for practically every meal until the age of 15 when prepackaged tortillas started to become popular and the hustle and bustle of the fast paced life that we now live in began to limit the homemade tortillas in my life. I explained that to give you an understanding of the type of Mexican food I am accustomed to enjoying. Authentic all the way. The enchiladas ——-Pictured above : Are so delicious be sure to try them on one of your visits.
I love their Fish Tacos Pictured here with an Adobado Taco with fresh cilantro.
Just Like Mom and Grandma(Nana) used to make
The fact that they make so many foods that I remember having as a child is what makes this place great. If your looking for a cold weather favorite you’ve got to try their chicken soup (Caldo de Pollo) or their beef soup (caldo de Res) I’ve tried them both and man oh man what a treat.They also have shrimp and fish soups but i haven’t tried those yet.
If your more of a seafood lover and want to have a south of the border taste bud experience then you’ve got to order the Shrimp Cocktail ( Coctel de Camaron) this is a seriously delicious entrée. That comes with Shrimp, Octopus if you’d like(I liked),tomatoes, cucumber, lemon juice, onions, cilantro, avocado and some chile sauce and ketchup to take you back to Shrimp cocktails like I’ve had in Ensenada. A couple saltines on the side and your set for the rest of the day.
If you like deserts how about some Flan— Have you ever ordered flan from El Pollo Loco only to get it in a prepackaged cup and it tastes like jello pudding? Not here. Take a look at their flan:
Lastly, these guys serve up some seriously incredible ice cream. The owner Armando makes it right there in the store along with the many flavors of ice cream bars. The coconut and pico de gallo are my personal favorites.
I encourage you to be daring and try as much as you can on this menu. You will not regret it. I really believe you can’t go wrong with their wide range of food choices on this menu. Enjoy!!! Tell them I sent you, I’m sure they would be thrilled to hear it.
