Cabaña Tapacolmes Rosales Reviews
Delicious seafood! Dec 30, 2009
There are many seafood restaurants between the towns of Rosales and Delicias in the mexican state of Chihuahua, but Cabaña Tapacolmes is definitively the best. They offer both local and mexican varieties of seafood, including the infamously delicious "bear soup"! (Caldo de oso - Actually a fish soup, not made of bears!)
The origin of the term "bear soup" is uncertain, but the most likely theory is that it comes from the name "caldo odioso" (unbearable soup) given by the workers of the construction of the Delicias dam, because they had to eat fish soup everyday. Eventually the name changed from "odioso" to "de oso" which is the name with which it is known now. If you are ever in Chihuahua and want to try some delicious fish soup don't hesitate ordering a "Caldo de Oso" (even in the picture in your mind is a bear claw coming out of your soup!)
All other fish options are great, and very cheap! Most entrees are 5 dlls. The restaurant decoration is also gorgeous. You can have some live music while you are dining. This restaurant is a must if you are ever in the area!
