The place was established 46 years ago and offers a varied menu. One of its signature dishes is the fried sea bass that is served with patacones (fried green plantains), rice, avocado and traditional salad.
It is located in Ejercito Avenue and Clemente Ballen Street and has room for 70 people. There are two branches, one located in downtown and the other in Kennedy Citadel, north of the city.
At the beginning, the owner of the business, Juan Molina, prepared the dishes but in time he passed his recipes to his sons and several employees.
Picanteria Don Juan also offers ceviches made of shrimp, fish and concha (shell), arroz marinero (rice with seafood), sopa marinera (seafood soup), and encebollado (fish soup). For its quality and tradition, the place was one of the 30 huecas that were part of the Raices International Gastronomic Fair.
The schedule of attention is from 07h30 to 17h00, every day.
