I have returned time and time again to savor La Fuentes shrimp soup. On 4/27/17, I was greatly disappointed. Small portion, lack of imagination with garnish and cloudy broth was my $15.00 entree. I could have bought 2lbs of frozen shrimp and had a feast...More

I would like to know if you cater? I am anticipating 13 for a birthday party. If catering is not an option could I order a variety of items and I could just pick everything up, and reheat at home. Please advise
