La Central is a fantastico Mexican restaurant at the fantastica location of the Copan Building, the Oscar Niemeyer landmark building in the heart of São Paulo. Not only is the place very nice, but the food is really really really good. I had been craving real Mexican food since my two weeks in Oaxaca and Mexico City back in 2013. Most of the times in Brazil a Mexican restaurant ends up being a Tex-Mex thing proud of its chili con carne. Not La Central, where the tortillas, arepas and all are authentic. To eat until you burst! Wash your meal down with some mezcal, than get an Uber back to the hotel.
