|Pueblo Eden, Uruguay|
Just one block off the central plaza is a restaurant called La Posta de Vaimaca that advertises “slow food in a slow town”. It is a rustic place with a wood burning heating stove in the middle and overhead lights with armadillo shell lampshades over the serving bar.
Ten years ago Robert Giordano, a famous Argentine hairstylist, built a grand estate just a couple miles outside of Pueblo Eden. When in the area he made Sunday dinners with his guests at La Posta de Vaimaca a part of his routine. Giordana’s discovery caught on and today going to Pueblo Eden to enjoy the countryside and eat at La Posta de Vaimaca has become a popular side trip for vacationers and travelers.
Pueblo Eden is located on Route 12 at Kilometer 30 (13 kilometers north of Ruta 9).
La Posta de Vaimaca is near the Pueblo Eden school, one block off the town’s central square.
It is open for lunch during the off-season from Tuesday through Sunday (closed on Mondays). In the high season months of January and February they are also open for dinner. Reservations are strongly recommended on Sundays and during high season: 4410-2017
