Well, we've all had Mexican food before - and Cuban, and Puerto Rican, but for really Wild Dining...
Here's a chance to try authentic Comida Jalisqueño! LA BARQUITA is a unique & friendly family-run Central-Mexican restaurant featuring authentic recipes from La Barca, Jalisco, which is about 50 miles southwest of Guadalajara on the Michoacan border just east of Lake Chapala.
I found this place last summer, and I've hosted several succesful events there. The menu is VERY extensive, including regional specialties, most cooked to order, all made on premises! Birria, mole, seafood, molcajete combos (see below), etc.
The atmosphere is homey, the accommodating service is first-rate, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable, considering portion sizes and just how marvelous everything is! Plus, they have cold Bohemia, Tecate, etc.!
They don't have a website, but here are a few recent reviews:
Ths last time I was there, I had a long talk w/ Don José (the chef) - in Spanish - about the recipes, & his wife Lupe is an effervescent gem running the front of the house! What fun & engaging restaurateurs!
So, c'mon by and indulge in something really different! It's exciting to share this with the group & I can't wait to go back!
