Sure enough, true to how things work in Loreto, by 4:30 pm there were only a few signs in the town square across from the Mision of a celebration that would take place. Then whispers and rumors started to spread that the party was really going to begin at 6:30 pm.
With time on our hands, we decided to head over to Cesar’s for some drinks and for those that were hungry, some tacos.
The restaurant, like a lot of places in Loreto, is colorful and festive. Tacos are their specialty coming first on the menu. Cesar’s offers a variety of taco types including: beef, chili pork, fish, shrimp and a cheesy, beefy mixed kind. Further down the list they offer other fare such as hamburgers, BBQ chicken wings and fish and chips (calling it “Fish with French Fries in a Basket”). The pricing was very reasonable with no menu item over 70 pesos.
Well, I liked it so I’m passing on the word.
Having eaten at several restaurants in Loreto already during the day, I ended up only ordering a “cola light”. I think Deb did the same as well… Clint ordered a beer. Jane and Sharon ordered the fish tacos to share which they said were fantastic. I thought they looked delicious, thin fillets of fish dipped in batter and delicately sizzled until golden brown.
The complimentary nachos at the table with plenty of wonderful condiments/dressing. My favorites were the guacamole and the cold slaw. The guacamole tasted of fresh avocados and the cold slaw had a wonderful crunch and sweet & sour taste.
One of the highlights of the little meal we had at Cesar’s was what we didn’t order. A bunch of nachos with condiments/dressing came to the table which is equivalent to the US bread basket presented at the table. It was delicious.
If you have a craving for tacos or nachos, stop by cesar’s, grab a chair, order some goodies and watch the world go by.
