Turkey with a Mexican twist

Picadillo stuffing:


Gourmet burger joint moves over and up

A couple of years ago we reviewed Pig’s Pearls, a five-table upscale hamburger hole-in-the-wall at Morelos 1349 in Guadalajara’s Colonia Lafayette. Things have changed.


CASA nurtures pleasures of the palate

Lakesiders who cook with passion, seek learning experiences to enhance their culinary abilities, get a kick out of tasting foods from around world and enjoy sharing ideas with folks of the same ilk find the perfect milieu in the Culinary Arts Society of Ajijic (CASA).


Halloween gigs, Day of the Dead feast

All dressed up and no place to go? You’ll fit right in at lakeside hotspots that will be throwing Halloween parties on Thursday, October 31.


New ribmaster at the helm of Bubba’s restaurant

Iceland native Thor Hjaltason and his wife Laura from Texas have taken over Bubba’s restaurant from Ed Hofnel, who is now living in the U.S. recovering from an illness.


European bistro keeps flavors true to form

Cedric Defayes got out of banking business in 2009 and returned to Guadalajara to eventually open a bistro with friends he made 10 years before during a stint here as a student.  The steely blued-eyed native of the Alps region of Switzerland serves up European cuisine in his Le Bistro, Le Cava & Le Jardin, just half a block off Avenida Chapultepec.


Mexican Independence provides excuse for culinary indulgence

Even the most miserable expats find it hard not to get caught up in the excitement of Mexico’s Independence celebrations. Many enterprising restaurants will create special menus and events for the occasion, while others will offer their regular fare but with more joviality than usual. Here is a sampling of Lakeside’s culinary options over the Independence Day weekend.


Eat out on Canadian Thanksgiving

The Canadian Thanksgiving Day meals at the Canadian Club and American Legion Post Seven may be sold out but there are other options for those looking for traditional fare on Monday, October 14. 


Number Four hits all the right notes

If you’ve not been to Kim Everst’s Number Four restaurant in Ajijic, then you’re missing out. The wine list is ample, categorized by price and well designed for the novice with descriptions of each bottle’s flavor, the cocktail selection includes all the favorites and a lively martini list and the menu is just broad enough but still kept to four pages (bilingual) and a one page special sheet.
