El Zarape in La Paz


Last week we went to La Paz and returned to one of our favorite restaurants - it did not disappoint.

Unfortunately, it was way too hot to sit outside on their upstairs balcony, but it was nice and cool in the air conditioning on the main floor.

We actually went twice and the second time ordered the peach mango sauce chicken. It was great !

almost any place on the Malecon will get you mediocre food, high prices, bad service, charging irregularities. Some rare exceptions though.

That sounds like the burger and pizza joint we ate at, Harald, verdad?
It was very good. Great view of the Malecon people cruising by.

Harkers is one of our favorites for fast food on the malecón. Way better than Tailhunters as as you stated, it is a super view of the people enjoying the malecón in the evening.
It is unfortunate that some who live here continue to bash the great environment La Paz gives.
A up and coming place to eat is El Cardon at the newly renovated Costa Baja, Puerta Cortes. Best view of the city in the evening with breezes, great food.
Don't worry that Harold won't like it, because it does cost money, as he still hates everything in La Paz that costs money and has not planned well enough in life to enjoy what does cost a little.

Check it out as it is super nice

Unfortunate, how? Think someone living in LP might have something to bash about. LP is great. But not that great.

I love Cabo and esp. San Jose. Everyone bashes Cabo. So f'ing what?

When you've eaten at that place (El Cardón), what percentage of the diners do you think are native Paceños? :?:


Many are natives, dumb A. Mostly educated, successful people from Mexico City, and here in La Paz, that laugh there asses off of gringos who think they are so successful and smart and want to be rid of cheap gringos who invade their country and complain about there way of life and how they operate .

Give that a moment and think about it. There are many pacenos here that really don't like us for what we represent.

For example, how many cheap gringos drive around in their SD plated cars? Thinking they are soooo smart in beating the system, pay nothing for the infrastructure that they only complain about. These people here know gringos are trying to cheat, and maybe that may predispose them to cheat us. Maybe a little profound for this audience however. Just a thought.

I am headed to play some golf at Puerta Cortez now, have some good food with my Mexican buddies and my wife. Will report back how many Pacenos were there .

FYI, a burger at Harkers is not $10 and always loaded with locals. Just 4X4 trying again to debut La Paz.

Sorry, Lee for calling out your buddy, but he is always banging life here. Bad doctors, bad food, bad service, bad people, ect. But still can't get enough money on the go fund him page to get a ticket out of the place he hates so much

Blanca,

That looks fun ! When we drove by years ago it looked like it was permanently closed. We will take a closer look next time.
All the best to you and Les, Lionel :cool:

Lee, just thinkig about your post. Cabo is fine if you are between the ages of 19-25. Otherwise what we have seen is that people living there need to be near a Cosco, Walmart and a Home Depot. Not exactly people moving and living here to assimilate into the culture....Nothing wrong with being young, immature and without direction yet, where there are cheap drugs, hoars and alike..... been there and done that. Not our deal anymore as we have grown up.

Hope you do well there an enjoy. For vacation check out Las Vegas!

Please donate to the welfare kids on the street that bother you every 1 minute. Sad.
