“Best restaurant in Tuxtla Gutierrez”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I was born and raised Tuxtla Gutierrez. I would like to entirely recommend this GREAT restaurant. This place offers to its clients the opportunity to eat traditional Chiapanecan food. The recipes of this meals are hundreds of years old and some are a blend of native Mexican and Spanish cosine. If you are a good lover, this is your place. Ingredients used in their meals are really fresh because they are produced locally. Also as many people mentioned before the show (I believe is daily) is the best part. I would strongly suggest you to make a reservation, they could provide you the best seat to see the show and you can plan accordingly. I always make reservations 45 mins before the show, so we can have a nice quiet dinner and enjoy desert while watching the show. The decoration of the place is very traditional like you mayu find in old housed in Chiapas. Well, hope this helps, enjoy "Las Pichanchas"!

“Chiapan restaurant experience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Las Pichanchas is a good choice if you're looking for the
Chiapan experience. The food was good and dinner included Chiapan folk dancers and lots of bell-ringing when anyone orders a pumpos, the local drink that's similar to a pina colada. It's a fun experience, but not the place I'd go if you're looking for a quiet or romantic evening.

“Great diversity of wonderful Chiapas food”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The restaurant is a classic. They have an ample and wonderful selection of some of the best Chiapas food. It's a great place to sample different dishes, particularly if you go with more than 2 people. Dishes include different local tamales (e.g., chipilín, cambray), rellenitos (plantain patties stuffed with refried beans and served with cream and fresh cheese), soups, meats, desserts and a local drink called "pombo". When a pombo gourd is served, you have to ring the bell right next to your table. They also sell all kinds of local food at the little shop which you can take home. The Ocosingo cheese is particularly good, as are the tamales, chillies from Simojovel, organic coffee, etc. It's a great treat at a very affordable price!

“Food From Chiapas that you can't miss!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

To get a taste of local food you should go here. It isn't too expensive and depending on the day you go, there is music and folk dancing
