Those bunuelos are huge! They could almost double as umbrellas if you got caught in a spring shower ;) The plaza is lovely, and too bad that your room was sub-par 'cause it looks so, so cute in the picture!


Hello - new reader here, loving your posts on Mexico so far. I live in Chicago but have visited my boyfriend's family in Guadalajara several times. We had a similar evening in Tlaquepaque, such a cute town. We did a day trip/one night in Tequila last March ... it was awesome. If you're not afraid to throw back some tequila, you can do one of several distillery/tasting tours. Anyway, I'd highly recommend fitting a day in Tequila if you can manage ...
Look forward to reading more through the year!!


bunuelos are large flour tortilla-sized. the picture you're talking about features the chicharrones. fried pork rinds. and they didn't even cut them up first. heh.

Hi! Yup, Diana, those are the giant chicharrones. They break them up when you order them and then ladle a plastic cupful of spicy stuff on them - I can't quite bring myself to do it, yet!

Krista, the place was definitely cute. You can sort of see the paint peeling in the mirror over Logan's head, but I think it looked a bit worse in person. He jammed a bunch of toilet paper into the matress today to keep the spring from sticking him. :-p

Hi, Molly! Thanks so much for the comment, and I'm glad you're enjoying the blog! I'd be curious what your boyfriend thinks of Rick Bayless's Xoco torta ahogada. We couldn't get to Tequila this time, but we did buy some to conduct our own little taste test. Wondering if there are mezcal tours in Oaxaca...

Thanks for reading, and please let us know if you have any other suggestions!


how happy and jealous i am for you guys to be visiting Mexico like this. i hope that some day, i'll be able to visit the ancestral land! and feast myself upon delicious chicharrones! haha.
please stay safe!
