Normal and good food - nothing special

Nothing special here. Wasn't bad, wasn't good. Not sure why we there. Suppose to have a good breakfast but we only had lunch. Service was good and a decent place all and all. I'd go there again if it was convenient!

The Sanborn's restaurants owner is no less than the richest man in the world according to the Forbes list, Mr. Carlos Slim. He has a taste for old buildings which he has helped to restore and bring back to their ancient architectural value. He did it in Mexico City with the Casa de los Azulejos and has done the same...

Half the experience is walking through the store on the way to the restaurant. Some locations, like El Triangulo, have covenient parking.
