Average pressed sandwich shop. Their strength are the shakes. Fresh fruits. Papaya Lechosa Shakes and other fruits makes this place a good place to go!

I am a follower of the Late Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, and tried out Barra Payan as recommended! Amazing place with excellent sandwiches. I totally recommend Barra Payan for a great local experience.
