Cambalache Review

This beef-lover's dream is popular with everyone from businessmen to young families. The low-ceiling, wood-beamed dining room is hung with nostalgic pictures of Buenos Aires. Everything is grilled, from the Argentine beef to the lamb to the whitefish in a mild chili sauce. Desserts are large and inventive—try the riff on an alfajor, a typical dulce de leche sandwich cookie.

    I worked for 3 years in Mexcio City. There was a group of 12 of us who "hung out" at The Cambalache every Saturday night. It's an Argentine restaurant, so the beef is TENDER and BIG BIG BIG.
    It's THE BEST "steak house" in Mexico City. The Cezar salad is hand-made in front of you, the beef is all slow-roasted over wood coals, the wine list is VERY impressive, and yet the dress-code is VERY casual.
    Hands-down the best beef I ate in Mexico City. The "appies" are FABULOUS, but again are more Argentine than Mexican. The blood sausage is particularly good.
