El Parian Salagua
Owner: Javiar & Lupita


While striving to maintain a positive attitude, generally,
I’m not one to gush about “new found treasures.”

However, today may be the exception.

El Parian one block, headed easterly, from the Los Hadas intersection is a true culinary find. Easy access, superlative food, outstanding service and simply great prices!

During our first visit we ordered a Caesar Salad (Cesar de Pollo), two orders of Chiles Rellenos De Picadillo, and Eggplant lasagna. YUM on all counts including the garlic pita served along with our meals and a chocolate drizzled crepe for dessert! And sweetness upon that was the fact that, including beers, drinks and a generous tip, our tab was only 430 pesos!

The open air ambiance is delightful what’s occasional traffic noise anyway, it simply confirms the local “feel”.

Comfortably seating forty plus at checked table clothed with settings for four (easily joined for larger groups) it is the sort of place we all keep an “eye out for!”

And while the owners a distinguished looking Javiar and slender, long-haired, attractive Lapita are not bi-lingual, their wait staff all speak good English and displayed a most friendly and responsive attitude.

Beyond a variety of tacos, fajitas and delightfully prepared pescado, sumptuous smelling and attractively presented lasagna and spaghetti, also available on the menu is a lip smacking array of pizzas, all prepared in the nearby charcoal fired clay oven. We know this for a fact as we returned but a few nights later thoroughly enjoying three different varieties the best we’ve had in Mexico!

Bottom line. This is a “gotta’ go to restaurant!
