    Pampas do Brasil: A little bit of South America in Tijuana

    by spartan Written Jun 14, 2006

    On a recommendation from coworkers, my buddy and I decided to try this restaurant. Something different from the ordinary TJ eatery, and I must say that we totally enjoyed the experience. Located away from the border and not frequented by many tourist, you'll find Pampas to be a first class establishment that is not very expensive, the service is top notch and the food is...well...delicious.

    Favorite Dish: The menu revolves around meat...beef, chicken, pork, ham...a generous salad bar and hot entrees that you should not leave starving.

    To DIne in TJ: A potpourri of other places

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Two blocks West of the Avenue on the North side of Fourth is 'Super Antojitos', with very good Mexican food for cheap. Try the 'Potpourri of Enchildadas', two each of red, green, and mole sauce.

    At Second and Constitucion, by the old City Hall, you'll spot La Marinella by the spit of adobada meat roasting outside. They have tacos of that or fish, or about anything, along with seafood cocktails and a special treat, quesadilla de cameron--shrimp and melted cheese in a tortilla. Lots of people like the artwork by a local surfer/painter.

    Around the corner on Constitucion is Chico Pollo, with good cheap chicken dishes on the West Side and the very good Pipirin painted bright orange on the East side. Pipirin has the traditional border architecture of brick archways and serves all sorts of tacos, antojitos, and dishes of chicken, pork, or beef.

    A few blocks past Plaza Rio (at the Glorieta Zaragoza) is La Casa del Mole, a tropical fantasy of a restaurant that specializes in a very authentic mole Poblano, Mexico's ancient characteristic chile sauce (not all that hot). They also have other old recipes like chicken cooked in maquey leaf that you won't find elsewhere. And at very reasonable prices.

    Various: A taste of Mexico

    There are many restaurants to choose from in Tijuana, from nice sit-down joints, to street vendors selling food right from an open stand. However, be careful about eating food that does not look like it is properly cared for. I wouldn't be too excited about eating fruit that you don't peel yourself. Oh yeah, and don't drink the water. Stick to soda, beer or bottled water.

    Closer to the US border are several tacos shops that sell 3 tacos for $1 USD. Howver, the closer you get to Avenue REvolucion, the higher the price, from 2 for $1 USD up to just onve taco for $1 USD.
    the pricae and the fact it's open 24 hours!

    Favorite Dish: Soft shell tacos.

    There are thousands of restaurants around Tijuana. I really recomend to avoid Avenida Revolucion restaurants.
