I happened to visit Tepoztlán on a singular weekend when they celebrated the “challenges” and strolling through the streets I saw a sign of this restaurant marketing argentine food. Due to sheer curiosity I jumped the stairs (it is located in a 1st floor) and discovered a quaint place with a few tables and as it was early many were empty.
I decided to try a dish or two to ascertain it’s authenticity (I am argentine) and sat in a place overlooking the street below.
I requested empanadas and a glass of malbec. My first surprise was when I asked the waiter of the strange feeling of finding argentine food In Tepoztlán and his answer was “all of us here love argentine food”. He was not talking of any foreign staples but about his sincere opinion of the dishes he served.
The food arrived and to my surprise they were the real thing. The empanadas’ fillings were authentic as was the crust. He wine list was also interesting and had several argentine wines.
Then tables around us began to fill and dishes arrived and I was able to appreciate the fettuccine with tomato sauce, some grilled piece of tender beef, a large-sized milanesa with French fries and a few other items that made my mouth water.
Service was agile, efficient and kind. But I also learned that the staff had better compensation that anyone working in the other restaurants in town.
I was even more pleased to learn that a material percent of profits go to local charities.
I will go back any time I visit this beautiful pueblo mágico !!!
