When they serve you rancid empanadas: Restaurant Zitto (20. October 2017)

| February 13, 2018 | 0 Comments

Talk about disappointment – after the next flight of the trip, we ended up quite hungry in Mendoza. And as the place we had originally sought out didn’t serve any food at the time we went to the next best thing. The Zitto is located in the pedestrian area and served at least some empanadas. Well, I finally figured that empanada isn’t equal to empanada. The ones I’ve tried here, the “Empanada Criolla” (25 ARS), “Empanada Vacío Cortada a cuchillo” (28 ARS), “Empanda Jamón y queso” (27 ARS) and the “Empanada Bondiola de Cerdo Braceada” (27 ARS) were not like the ones I’ve tried before. The meat ones were okay but the jamón y queso was somewhat rancid. Definitely not edible.

The place would be okay if it wasn’t next to a construction site. The service, however, isn’t. The thing is, if you can watch the waiter talking to his colleagues instead of bringing you that “Smoothie Multifruta” (40 ARS) – which was admittedly tasty – it kind of makes it transparent how slow they are, somewhat on purpose. The same was true when I ordered the bill – he forgot about it. And it’s not like there was a lot going on. So, my recommendation: Avoid Zitto!
