Cambalache was established in 1986 by a group of culinary professionals
dedicated to offering the most authentic home-style Argentinean cuisine

There is no doubt you will enjoy the best Argentinean food in Mexico within Cambalache. Their exclusive “charcoal grill” and Asador (Vertical Spit over hot coals) are what make the difference. You will enjoy the best cuts of prime beef; beef de chorizo (similar to rib eye); tenderloin with sauces; and strip steak.
Also, tender pork and lamb roasted slowly over hot coals. Add to your experience with gourmet salads, pasta dishes, grilled vegetables, and heavenly desserts. Their extensive wine list includes varieties from Argentina, Mexico, Spain, France, Chile and California.

New Customs Procedures Simplify Entering Mexico

The traffic light lottery utilized by Mexican Customs will soon be a quirk of the past. Changes intended to improve service to travelers include elimination of the traffic signals that randomly select people for a baggage search at Customs entry points. At present, travelers must press a button when passing through Customs, and those who get a green light are free to go. The unlucky few who get a red have their bags searched. The changes were implemented at Mexico City airport’s Terminal 2 as a pilot project and will include the elimination of Customs declarations forms that are completed by travelers coming from abroad. At airports, baggage will be inspected by x-ray scanners while in transit between planes and baggage carousels in coordination with the Federal Police. Following the pilot, the new system will be introduced gradually at Terminal 1 in Mexico City and at the international airports in Cancún, Los Cabos, Guadalajara and Monterrey, through which 85% of international travelers arrive in Mexico. Authorities say the new procedures, which are standard practice internationally, will make it simpler for travelers, to whom control and inspection measures will be imperceptible.
