the grandmother of Medallo Krishna spots
Posted on 01 / 07 / 2012
Located next to the oldest church in town (I believe), it's actually quite a large building when you see it from the outside... though as other reviewers have noted, it's easy to walk past it several times trying to find the entrance.
Once you do, go up the occasionally crowded staircase into the second floor restaurant, which is surprisingly roomy and spacious. Food is pretty typical Krishna fare, not ideal vegans since they do use ghee and cheese, but there still several options. Best time is to arrive for the buffet lunch between 12 and 3, but they are open later for fast food and snacks.
The neighborhood is generally safe, but it's also a few blocks away from less desirable areas as well as some very crowded corners so it's important to be wary. Recommended!
central, hearty, friendly
lots of dairy products, a bit hard to find, need to take care in neighborhood
