Soo cool! Simple and tasty soup. The rock is so hot before they place it in the gourd with fresh seafood, onion, chilies, tomato and water. The rock when placed in the bowl boils the water and cooks the soup.

This is something you must see and try. Make sure to take your camera and a good appetite. Ask for extra lemon, salsa and you can't forget the tortillas. Great service !!!

To start with, the soup is delicious and enough of a reason to visit. The cooking method is very different. Staff invite guests to watch the soup being made, to take photographs and videos. The staff are courteous and friendly creating a lovely atmosphere.

We had such a good time here. The soup is really fun and I would suggest everyone try it once. The juices were excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The soup was good but it lacked a bit of flavor. For entertainment...More
