Fonda Mama Fefa
Matriarch of creole cooking, Mama Fefa usually runs out of lunch by noon (though you can linger longer). Cheap and cheerful, these huge platos típicos include meat or fish, rice, salad and a drink. Devotees share the space at a few outdoor tables. Take the side street abutting Dim's Hostel for a block and a half, it's on the right.
