We went to Cafe Castro this week. It was our first visit there, and we loved it!
Castro's has been in Santa Fe for a long time, but moved in the past year from their location on Rodeo Rd, to their present location on Cerrillos Road just across from Jackalope.
The service is friendly and very prompt, the food is very well prepared, delicious and inexpensive, and the interior of the restaurant is all painted in bright colors. Lots of windows so the atmosphere is very light and happy.
I had two tamales, with beans and rice and posole. John had carne adovada. The sopapillas were huge and puffy and light. And the green chile was EXCELLENT.
Castro's may move up near the top of our favorites list, and we will be going back often.
(Hey Karin -- you and Carlos will love this place. And Katy - next time we go there I am going to try the chile relleno and let you know how it is.)
