We are headed to La Paz and looking for good street food and restaurants. Any suggestions?

Craving deep fried tacos.

    I've never heard of fried tacos, but Rancho Viejo in La Paz has great tacos (the arrachera and al pastor are the tastiest). They also do very good breakfasts for a very reasonable price. If you like gorditas there is a fast food place in the food court at the Soriana and it has great gorditas. Not a lot of street food along the malecon, but a few block up you should be able to find a few stands. Hope you enjoy La Paz!

      Les Tres Virgines was one of the best meals we had. I'll get the address and phone number from my journal. Have a great time!

          The address for Las Tres Virgines is
          Madero 1145
          Esq Constitucion
          Tel # 612 165 6265

          Club El Moro is on the malecon and has a small cafe...but the best breakfast!!
          If you have a car Todos Santos is worth a visit for lunch.
          Hotel California good and Santa Fe deli on backstreet has a lovely outside area and excellent food.

            If you decide to come to Todos Santos let me know and I will be happy to give you suggestions - I live in Todos Santos. As I have posted before, the best tacos in the world IMO are to be found at Bismark on the Malecon in La Paz - smoked marlin tacos hmmmmm. And yes, I agree, Tres Virgenes is the best in la Paz.
