I have always heard that Neri's is the best and since I mentioned them in yesterday's post, it was time to try them. Lucky for me, there are two Neri's in San Pedro. One located closer to the lagoon side in town and a relatively new one, Neri's #2, in the DFC area...just around the block from me.

My best directions if you don't know DFC? When you are on the main road about 1.5 miles south of town, look for the signs for Hidden Treasure Restaurant. Make that turn (it's away from the ocean) and ask one of the many walkers or bikers headed to work. Ask them the way to Neri's Tacos. Odds are that they already are carrying a bag of the Neri's with them.

They are absolutely addicting. The tortillas are insanely fresh, the chicken filling is rich and salty, fresh chopped onions and the hot sauce is just spicy enough. You will be turned into a breakfast chicken taco will be converted immediately. And get this...the juice is ONE DOLLAR. My choices today were: watermelon, lime, banana, orange and horchata. Fresh juice. I have never seen watermelon juice less than $4bzd anywhere. One catch, it comes in a bag. So you can either have them snip off the corner and drink it that way (it's pretty much all or nothing at that point) or you can bring it home, dump into a glass and enjoy. Both the watermelon and the lime are delicious.

Mango's (one of my favorite favorite places) has a fancy new the hanging mangos.

As always, the food is delicious. It's my #1 recommended lunch place in town.

On my way home, I ran into one of the Belikin/Bowen & Bowen employees. All the delivery men have new uniforms. Upside? They have name tags...I like that since I am horrible at remembering names. Not so good? They dress exactly like the police in town. And they are no longer "color coded". Before, the water guys wore blue thin stripes, soda wore red and beer green.

The Neri's in town has the best (and only) fry jacks I have ever had. And the watermelon juice was fantastic. AND great prices!!!

The harder I work the luckier I get.

Check out the fry jacks at Estel's. DEEELISH. It's 423am...I wonder if Neri's has opened yet. I'm dying to try the pork breakfast tacos.

Estel's and George's Kitchen are my top 2 for fried Jacks, love them with honey on top or if I am lucky maple syrup.
