Xalapa: "Great Mexican food in Palermo, few tourists" Buenos Aires Restaurant Tip by wadekorzan

Buenos Aires Restaurants: 725 reviews and 738 photos

by wadekorzan

If you're in the mood to eat in an area very popular with locals, head to Palermo Viejo. There are lots of restaurants here and few tourists. As I love Mexican food, we go to Xalapa alot. It has a nice atmosphere and good food at cheap prices, and is very popular with locals. The restaurant is always full so you may wish to make a reservation (keeping in mind that no one eats before 9 PM). They only accept cash in pesos.

The photo was taken at 12:30 AM (past midnight!). Look how full the restaurant is at that hour....

Favorite Dish: Tacos Dorados---yum.
