LA PAZ - Restaurant Jalal POSTED You have to be really brave to eat in this restaurant. First, you have to summon the gumption to go up the narrow, dirty, unwelcoming three level stairway past two dirty sinks in the hall. Upon arrival at the...More

Hidden up a dark staircase, but the food and the service are fantastic. Wrap up warm though if you go at night in winter, there was no heating.
