Real Mexican Mariachi experience: Restaurant El Salón Tenampa (14. April 2017)

Given I had failed so far to see Mariachis live, it was about time to fill this gap. So, when you’re in Mexico City, you should definitely go to the Plaza Garibaldi where all the Mariachis are and order a mariachi song for you. Or, you enter one of the many establishments around the square […]

Good bar to have a drink after Chapultepec: King Cole Bar @ The St. Regis Mexico City (14. April 2017)

When you visit Mexico City, you have to talk a walk through Chapultepec – a huge park in the center of the city! And if you are there during a holiday or a weekend, it’s absolutely packed! It is really kind of incredible how big the park is – and it is actually quite beautiful, […]

How the locals spend Easter – with delicious Mexican food: Restaurant Cabaña Juárez (14. April 2017)

As a tourist you would probably never end up here – but you should. If you drive basically through the whole city and exit around Santa Fe and keep going towards Toluca, you will at some point encounter an area where along the highway there is one little house besides the next and all of […]

How to get your tummy full, Mexican style: Cantina El Amanecer Tapatio (13. April 2017)

A Mexican cantina is a really interesting experience – something I have never tried before despite having been already three times to Mexico before. Now, the concept is rather simple – it is a huge room, like a canteen, you get a table (but you should book in advance if you’re a larger group), and […]

50 Best restaurants but not the best service: Restaurant Quintonil (12. April 2017)

The Quintonil has recently been awarded as one of the 50 best restaurants of the world and given I have been to Pujol and Biko previously, I thought it’s time to try a new one. I went for the “tasting menu” (1’800 MXN) with “wine pairing” (1’385 MXN). The restaurant is rather small and reservation […]

Only good for a break at the shopping mall: Restaurant El Diez, Parrilla Argentina (13. April 2017)

If you are looking for a quick stop while you are in a shopping mall, then the El Diez, Parrilla Argentina, is not a bad choice. I started with an “Empanada Elote con queso” (44 MXN) which was a bit dry but went quite well with the chimichurri sauce served. As a main, I went […]

Be on time – don’t be early though: Restaurant I Latina (11. April 2017)

I had booked a table for 7pm but given traffic can never be fully anticipated, the Uber arrived a bit earlier than 7pm. And while I do understand that they only open at a certain time, there was a security guy standing in front of the door, looking at the watch, stating that it will […]

Touristic place in Tlaquepaque with female mariachis: Restaurant El Patio (11. April 2017)

You should definitely plan to pay a visit to Tlaquepaque when you are in Guadalajara as the area is super nice and full of history. There are also some rather traditional restaurants which obviously focus strongly on tourists – one of them, recommended to us by our tour guide for Guatchimontones, the El Patio also […]
