Lovely Place (and a great place to buy gifts for foodie friends!)

Located right by the Alameda, El Sureno is a lovely place to stop for drinks and food. I would highly recommend the "Chile en Nogada", a traditional dish that was made to celebrate Mexico's independence (so try to order this around Sept. 15 or when pomegranates are in season). El Sureno specializes... read more

Went twice this week during my visit to Torreon. The service was incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. It is very nicely decorated and Sunday afternoon there was live (very good) music. I will definitely be back.

This place is very nicely decorated with a very southern Mexico feel and a great location, right in front of the Alameda. They have live mexican folk singers at times and the overall ambience is very nice and cozy. The food...well, they sell stuff that you could get from a street vendor at a much lower price. Just because of... More

Authentic southern food, full of flavors, good portions, dish well presented, lovely decoration and atmosphere and music. It is also well located in the heart of the city just infront of the Alameda Central. The service is also fantastic. Great menu. It is my favorite placer in town. I was already in Oaxaca, Yucatán and Quintana Roo and believe me... More

A very good option if you want to try something new of Mexican Cuisine with a lovely atmosphere given the decoration which surrounds you by Mexican Folklore. You will be able to enjoy excellent culinary options from Southern Mexico, like its already famous "Chapuilnes" (grasshoppers) Sopes, Enchiladas, Tacos, Mole (Chicken with Chocolate-Chili sauce) and many more southern dishes. There is... More
