The shrimp that falls asleep is carried by the current...

Right to the front door of the new Vegetable Bar. Yes, we realize Shrimp are not vegetables, but they are often referred to as the "fruit of the sea."

First and foremost, our shrimp are not farmed. They come straight off the boat and are purchased by a person who really knows shrimp and the shrimp know him and they know he does not sell impostors and the real shrimp are very afraid.

You cannot eat too much shrimp which is why we are serving up shrimp tacos for our Monday special. If you have had our shrimp tacos, you know first-hand how good they are, and you are welcome - we heard you loud and clear.

If you have not had our shrimp tacos, you don't know what you are missing, but trust me when I say the taste of our shrimp tacos transcends mere words. When a person bites into one of our shrimp tacos, moans of pleasure follow because the person eating them is rendered speechless - they are that good. Here are some other things you should be aware of about the shrimp in our tacos.

1. Shrimp contain a cancer-fighting mineral.
You’ll want to keep this shrimp information in mind: if the small crustacean is a part of your diet, it may reduce your risk of developing cancer. That’s because shrimp contain selenium, an antioxidant mineral that activates enzymes to fight the growth of cancer-causing free radicals.

2. Shrimp are low in calories, high in protein.
Here’s some shrimp information for anyone trying to eat healthy: shrimp are a very low-calorie food (a medium cooked shrimp has about 7 calories), which means you can eat quite a few without feeling guilty. Shrimp also have a lot of protein and are particularly good for you when served with healthy carbs, like brown rice or vegetables.

3. Shrimp are omnivorous.
Shrimp typically consume microscopic plant and animal matter by filtering the water around them or sifting through the ocean floor. Certain types of shrimp also catch and eat small fish.

4. Shrimp are an important part of their ecosystem.
Shrimp are an important source of food for many crabs, fish, sea urchins, whales, dolphins, and seabirds. Some species of shrimp also have a symbiotic relationship with fish and clean parasites, bacteria, and fungi off their host.

5. Some shrimp can loudly snap their pincers.
The ocean may look peaceful, but it can get pretty noisy below the surface when there are snapping shrimp around. Certain shrimp species are able to make a snapping sound that is louder than any other marine noise by hitting their large and small pincers together. It’s believed they do this to communicate with other shrimp or temporarily stun their prey.

It is up to you. You can have an almuerzo laden with carbohydrates and nothing worth writing home about or you can come to the new Vegetable Bar and have our amazing shrimp tacos. The lunch special includes 3 tacos for $5.95. If you are still hungry afterward, you can tacos at $1 each. With your special comes a free cappuccino or you can add a glass of wine for $3 more or a bottle of Nordica beer for $2 more. Get here early because our shrimp tacos sell out.

We are located at Ordonez Lasso y Los Cedros in Edificio Los Cedros next to Mundo Digital and across the street from Produbanco.
