Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants – 2016 Edition

latam50bannerWorld’s 50 best Restaurants issued the fourth list of the 50 best Latin American Restaurants. I have eaten on more restaurants of this list, I am up to 21, with reservations on two more :).  It is pretty similar to last years although I do like the change of the top restaurants in Mexico and Colombia, I am a fan of both Leo and Pujol. I also liked the inclusion of Tuju in Brazil, I had a fabulous meal there.

Heres the list (with links to blog post where I have referenced them in the past here in the blog and in bold the ones I’ve been to) : latam50
