We always go to Herradero whenever we are in San Jose, always for dinner as it seems so festive and fun there in the evening with the twinkly lights. Our current favorite is the "Grandpa's bowl" and for us, the beef, though it is available with chicken or shrimp. The meat is soooo tender and has been cooked to submission along with some sort of thin chilis and green onion, cheese melted throughout and chunks of avocado that have been stirred in at the last minute, keeping them fresh. Ladle it into their wonderful homemade tortillas and one bowl is enough for 2 adults. We need to expand our horizons and have breakfast there, as I understand it is really good too. Perhaps the breakfast is $, but the dinners, at $$, are still reasonable.
