Yep, yet another food post, I must be missing the Mexican food even if I'm fed well at my current location:-) And guess that with this post I can prove that there are other things to eat in Mexico other then tacos! Here is what to eat in Guadalajara...
French toast at Cafe Finca Riveroll, thickest slice of french toast I ever come across. Perfectly sweet, fried and a gooey on the inside, served with a flawlessly fried egg and topped off with some fake maple syrup. There was the option to add crispy bacon which I didn't but could imagine it would make the dish even better so not sure why I left it out.
QuesaTaco at Tomate Taqueria, Not to be had if on a diet but perfect if seriously hung over. Unfortunately I wasn't hung over so struggled big time finishing off this fat fat fat calorie bomb! It's basically a layer of grilled cheese filled with sliced fried pork and tons of melted cheese. The side dish of cactus, onions and jalapeño gives a welcome freshness from the fatties of the cheese.
Ham sandwich at Romea, on the picture you see a completely unordinary sandwich made out of ciabatta bread and filled with Serrano ham, tomato and lettuce. Doesn't sound very exciting but when its far in-between when you have the possibility to eat good tasty bread with good good filling then it taste delicious.
Tostadas at Boca del Celio, imagine a huge crispy nacho topped off with what ever seafood you like. Here in picture one topped with Mango, some white fish, cucumber, chili powder and hot sauce and the others again with white fish, lime, cilantro, tomato and avocado. Three of these was defiantly one to many! This place was by far my favourite restaurant in Guadalajara.
And here is what not to eat when in Guadalajara, Torta Ahogada or drowned sandwich as I would call it in English. This is a local dish and I completely understand why it hasn't spread over the rest of Mexico. They take a perfectly good baguette or similar piece of bread, stuff it with some good tasting meat and lettuce. After this they destroy the sandwich completely by pouring lots of tomato sauce on top, drowning it. This means that if you don't finish it in about five seconds then you have the soggiest bread you ever had, just imagine the texture of bread that you have thrown to the ducks on the lake.
I decided that it was time for a career break. So handed in my notice to the company who I worked with for the last ten years. It's time to pack my bag and depart from Amsterdam which been my home town for the last 4.5 years. -"Amsterdam, it's not you it's me and I need a break!". Read more
