Very local experience in Tequila: Clemen @ Mercado de Comida de Tequila (10. April 2017)

Given Guadalajara is in the vicinity of ‘Tequila’ (not the bottle or alcohol, but the town after which the alcohol is named), I decided to do a day trip there. And obviously, one has to eat so I went for the ‘Mercado de Comida de Tequila’ and had some simple Mexican quesadillas with different stuffings: […]

Great for huge groups – not so great for small groups: Restaurant Santo Coyote (9. April 2017)

Originally, there were somewhat different plans for Sunday, therefore, I had nothing pre-booked for dinner for that day. Well, turns out that this wasn’t the best of all plans. I asked for a recommendation at the hotel and got referred to ‘Santo Coyote’. I mean, probably, the name should already have rung a bell. But […]

The “breakfast” (295 MXN) at the Grill & Vine offers basically everything you need and can imagine. There is a range of salads and fresh fruit to pick from … … as well as various milk drinks, yogurts, stuff for your cereals (nuts, coco flakes, etc.) … … a variety of pre-cut fruits as well […]

Tequila tasting menu – a new experience: Restaurant La Tequila (7. April 2017)

Years ago in Cancún, I have been to a place which serves a lot of different tequilas, called ‘La Distilleria‘. Now, I had expected no less from ‘La Tequila’ obviously. To start we were offered various lemonades and I went for the “Lemonada de fresas” (strawberry lemonade) which was quite tasty but the glass only […]

Decent Mexican food but not the real deal: Restaurant Grill & Vine @ The Westin Guadalajara (7. April 2017)

Finally back in Mexico, I was looking forward to enjoying some real Mexican food – and well, probably, a SPG property is not the best place for that when I’m thinking about ‘authentic’ dishes but nevertheless, or rather, because the room wasn’t ready yet, I decided to have lunch here and went for the “Marlin […]

The Molletes Combinados (Jamon y Chorizo; 104 MXN) are a great way to start the day early after a heavy night. The mollete is heavy but the combination of Chorizo and Queso Manchego makes it very tasty. The dish is actually quite simple – a bun of bread, ham or chorizo and cheese. The place […]

30. August 2012: Restaurant Maneira Grill & Vino

Starting with a Margharita into a blissful last evening in Mexico City was ideal … … to deal with the pretty spicy dips which were served with absolutely delicious bread (I never thought I would actually ever say that about Mexican bread but the bread was truly outstanding). As a main, I had “Bife de […]

The “Arrachera tampiqueña” (con frijoles refritos, guacamole, rajas preparadas y doblada de mole; 167 MXN) is astonishingly tasty for airport food. The mole is rich, the guacamole too and the tortillas are perfect to make your own little tortillas. Even the meat is tasty and juicy. The waitress is very friendly and helpful and even […]
