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 […]

Delicious Mexican dishes – newly interpreted: Restaurant Alcalde (10. April 2017)

Funny enough, I only recently learned in the app ‘Duolingo’ what Alcalde means – mayor! So, I had apparently booked a table at the ‘Restaurant Mayor’ which served ‘French cuisine’. Now, I was quite curious what was going to expect me and went for the “tiradito del dia con emulsión de aceituna, aguacate e hinojo […]

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 […]
