This is another interesting strip of interest to Mex cuisine devotees. Though it is short in length there are a few spots to check out.

I checked out one - Raspados Acapulco - a mexican snow cone, fruit and snack specialist. I dont want to dismiss them straight out based on my experience with their Tejuino - as they offer some interesting rapasado flavors such as the rare arrayan and ciruehla.

The teijuno sucked so bad I had to toss it - from now on its honey bananas all the way.

La Nueva Michoacan is a Tiendita/ carneceria but with a great menu. Some exquisite looking guisados a la super cocina as well. My interest is is most piqued by their sope and gordita variants. I like their thinner horchata.

Ramierez Tortilleria is the only place where I could not breath - the heavy scent of the frying of chicharron is so strong. They offer menudo, stewed chichs, carnitas, burritos, tacos, and they are a full fledged tortilleria.

Not sure what to make of Birrias - they seem to specialize in Mariscos despite the name - dont think any relation to the small chain.
