When visiting San Cristobal and looking for a body and soul warming bowl of authentic traditional Mexican soup, El Caldero is the place to be. The food was fresh, flavourful, and served with enough sides to be more than filling.More

Great soup, huge servings, good tortillas, great prices. The vegetarian soup is delicious, particularly once you add some of the sauces. The bean appetizer is addictive. I wish I had a branch of this restaurant in my home town, a perfect late night dinner.More
