Kurai

Reviewed By ReyVas - Madrid

After visiting countless Japanese restaurants around the world (that are, presumably, too, only adaptations of "real" Japanese cuisine), on can only wonder how Kurai can call itself a sushi place or an Asian restaurant at all. From putting cream cheese in virtually every roll and throwing in random pieces of meat and chicken into rice rolls that are always falling apart, this place is one big mess. As if that wasn't enough to make any sushi lover recoil in horror, they also fry many of their rolls, which results in rolls dripping in OIL being served to the customer. As a result, every roll tells exactly the same and makes for one really messy and unsatisfying experience.

Nice place to have breakfast, clean and good service. The food is good too. I personally didn't like the decoration, looking at dead animals while eating is not my thing, but overall it was a good experience.

El Itacate

Reviewed By guilloguzman - Tampico

El Itacate is a local bakery and restaurant famous for its sweetbread and Mexican/regional food. Lomas de Rosales is its nicest location (and only one with parking). Despite tough competition from national chains it remains a locals' favorite for breakfast, dinner or just having a coffee or tea. I really like their chilaquiles and enpipianadas (a kind of non-spicy enchilada). It can get really crowded during peak hours and that can make service slow.

This place has some of the best seafood in town. The cheese tortillas are unique never have seen them elsewhere. Don't miss if you visiting. Local landmark. BETTER THERE THAN ACROSS THE STREET says the sign on the front (the grave yard is a cross the street)

Juana Cata

Reviewed By Carlos M - Tampico, Mexico

One of the best restaurants in Tampico. Although its not a typical beach place and its just across the road from the shore.
The soups and creams are amazing and the sea food is great and more elaborate than a traditional seafood restaurant. You gotta try the "Aristocrat cream soup".

Reviewed By guilloguzman - Tampico

El Muelle is always packed in the weekends and that's for a good reason. It offers a large menu of local seafood dishes and even things like lobster. The place is brand new and well maintained, it has A/C too, just be careful with the floor, it's really slippery!! The food is great, fresh ingredients, and nice dish presentation. The prawn cocktail was plentiful and the fish fillet tasty. Prices are on the high end but justified by quality and size of the dishes. Cards accepted and no problem invoicing. I will surely return to try other dishes.

I had the pleasure of having lunch here with a client who eats here frequently. I left ordering up to him and everything was incredible. The service was good and they went the extra mile to provide as good of service to their guests as possible. The cheesecake was really good!
