An Oasis of food in the midst of sorrow
If you or a loved one need medical attention in La Paz, there is no place like the Hospital Salvatierra for ordered chaos.
Only two short blocks away from the random human element is
Antojitos El Oasis. To be encountered on Cuahetmoc between Altimirano and Gomez Farias, the Oasis serves snacks, breakfasts and comida corrida Mondays through Fridays from 730 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon.
Its a cozy place, three wall-mounted fans helping to circulate the air inside the modest dining room. The menu is ambitious with over 50 combinations. The claim made on the menu and on the sign outside is that you will experience the authentic taste of homemade. The restaurant is clean, the taste is unmarred by off flavors and if you leave hungry it is your own fault.
The food in fact was on par with Cafe Canela but without the packaged cookie option and parking is a little easier.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
