San Luis Potosi

I have not found any good restaurants in the City of San Luis Potosi and would appreciate any recommendations.

  1. Try the fonditas in REAL DE 14 ! Excellent food

    1. I highly recommend El Callejón de San Francisco (across the street from the Templo de San Francisco—but on a side street, not on the main plaza/boulevard). If the weather is nice, eat in/on the rooftop garden—great views. The restaurant offers a mixed plate of Potosino appetizers which gives you a good idea of the types of regional cooking and dishes of the area. They also (for reasons unknown) make a very good Tarascan soup.

      1. El Rincón Huasteco. Breakfast at Woolworth´s, yes, it was a nice surprise, we didin´t expect it to be so good, so Mexican and original.... And "bueno, bonito and barato" (...and fast and clean) Cafetería Tokio.

          There is a Woolworths in SLP? I plan to visit there this summer. Might try that, just to see what a Mexican Woolworths looks like. Er, tastes like. Last time I ate in Woolworths was San Francisco in the '80s (real good hot dogs). As a teen I was partial to the grilled cheese sans.

        2. You know i Wrote something so long and complicated for directions... and since i do not know street names lol. i am just going to navigate the streets with google maps and show u. i love my dads city and every 2 mths i am there. but things are just not done how it is in america. we usually identify everything with plazas or centrally located buildings hotels churches etc. but yes woolworths and sears in downtown. walmart by industrial and by the new casino that opened and 2012 .... walmart homedepot, etc. we have all the subway and dominos kfc starbuks baskin robbins. name it we have it lol :). investors love san luis.
