Where to get your international food fix

Cosmopolitan Guadalajara is home to a wide range of international restaurants.

There are now so many that it has become harder than ever to decide where to eat out. Fortunately for you, the Reporter has compiled a guide to some of the best foreign cuisine available within the metropolitan zone.


The Vaca Argentina (Tomas V. Gomez 25; 3630-1160; Mon-Sat: 2 p.m. to midnight; Sun: 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.) is routinely rated as one of the best restaurants in Guadalajara at (it is currently ranked second) and boasts arguably the best beef and service in the city. Elsewhere, Savora (Terranova 122; 3642-7550; Mon-Sat: 1 p.m. to midnight; Sun: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.) is a must-visit because of its “pepitos,” hearty steak sandwiches best accompanied with melted cheese and chimichurri sauce, while Baires (Niño Obrero 618; 3123-0843; Mon-Sun: 2 p.m. to midnight) has a great range of empanadas, salads, steaks, seafood, pasta, pizza and some delicious sounding desserts. Finally, La Estancia Gaucha (Niños Heroes 2860; 3122-6565; Americas 1545; 3817-1808; Mon-Sat: 1 p.m. to midnight) is another highly rated establishment specializing in steak and ribs, plus all the usual Argentine fare.


Brazilian food means lots and lots of meat. The recently opened restaurant Mr. Pampas (Mariano Otero 1985; 3121-6190; Mon-Sun: 1 p.m. to midnight) serves quality steak, ribs, shrimp and chicken, while Scratch Do Ouro (Prolongacion Americas 350; 3633-9901; Mon-Sun: 1 p.m to 11 p.m.) invites diners to take adavantage of the all-you-can-eat buffet for 240 pesos. At weekends the latter joint also has live batucada music, a samba style percussion with African influences.


Famed for its “pastel de choclo” – a kind of corn-topped casserole – Puro Chile (Lopez Cotilla 1959; 3616-5868; Tue-Sat: 2 p.m. to midnight; Sun: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.) is decorated with photographs and maps of Chile, plays traditional and contemporary Chilean music and stocks a range of top Chilean beers and wines, as well as serving the distinctive national drink, pisco sours.
