Buenos Aires Restaurants

Xalapa

Fodor's Review

One look at the frozen margarita machines and bags of supermarket corn chips and you'll know what you're in for at this colorful dining room. But strangely enough, this is where you'll find some of the city's better Mexican food—it's reasonably authentic and comes truly spicy if you request. Don't expect to be wowed, but an ice-cold beer with a plate or two of quesadillas or the delicious tacos al pastor (stuffed with sliced pork) may just hit the spot.

Xalapa Review

Just wanted to add that it opens from mondays to sundays at night, and also for lunch on saturdays and sundays only. The margarita is excellent and I recommend the pollo con mole or its enchilada version (enchilada poblana). Also the taco pastor is very good!! Very cheap!!

Not Hot but Not Bad

In a town where mexican restaurants can often leaving you wanting...this isnt bad. The restaurantin located in a hip neighborhood, has a cute and fun interior and the staff is cheerful and efficient. Unfortunately, the food is only ok. Its hard for argentines to embrace "comida picante" and no matter how much hot sauce I added the food didnt have the needed heat. Also somewhat disappointing was the marguarita which was too sweet and was reminesient

of Country Time Lemonade Mix. Nevertheless, this has been the most satisfying Mexican experience in BA.
