What to Eat in Guadalajara

For such a laid-back place, Guadalajara takes its food seriously. The city's signature dish is the torta ahogada, literally "drowned sandwich." This pork sandwich is drenched in broth and served with diced onions and spritzed with lime juice; you use a spoon rather than your hands. You'd also be remiss if you didn't sample some of the region's tequila. Try it straight-up or in a cocktail, or head about 40 miles northwest to tour the Jose Cuervo and Sauza distilleries

Try the cafes, called loncherías, ice cream shops and fresh fruit drink stores, called neverías, and don't miss San Juan de Dios Market's multitude of taco vendors. Also, save some time to dig into birria, a stewed goat meat dish made with tomatoes and savory spices. For a more formal meal, try Sagrantino or Asador La Vaca Argentina.
