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

| June 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

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 has female mariachis after 3pm. The place is – after its name – basically one big patio. You are asked to tell them where you’re from and you’ll be seated with a little flag on your table. Interestingly enough, the majority of the tables were occupied with Mexicans.

I went for the “enchilladas verdes gratinadas (rellenas de pollo, bañadas con salsa verde y acompañadas de frijoles refritos)” (135 MXN) which were rather dull. I mean, just putting a slice of squared cheese and not even letting it melt properly isn’t really the way to go.

But at least what was served as snacks before the actual lunch started was decent. There were freshly cut vegetables, chips, and a variety of salsas which were all quite well. When it comes to the service, I must say, I was kind of positively surprised as they were actually quite attentive and always around which is something I had definitely not anticipated.

Overall, the El Patio is a place I would not go again – it is located centrally within Tlaquepaque, sure, but it offers nothing outstanding in terms of food and atmosphere. And as the mariachis are only there from 3 pm but I was there around 1pm, there were none. Maybe it’s better when they are around.
