We were curious because we read that Julia Child used to come here often. We decided to give a try. Line was too long, which was probably a good sign. We waited in line for 15 minutes and finally gave our orders through window. There...More

Freshly prepared and very tasty plates like in Mexico. Drinks available like horchata and aguas frescas. A simple but cosy, airy and clean sitting area.

I really enjoyed my meal at La Super Rica, you order at the counter and they have indoor seating available. You are lucky if there isn't much of a line. Cash only.
