suggestions? I was hoping to avoid a high cost dinner at a hotel. thanks!
Sweetwankle, I don't want to state the obvious...but Thanksgiving is not a holiday celebrated in Mexico. You'll be able to eat dinner that day at any restaurant in Guadalajara. I don't guarantee turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce, but maybe a great mole con guacalote (mole with turkey) would do the trick. Try La Chata http://lachata.com.mx/es/ The location in the Centro Histórico is charming. I don't recommend the other location.
Are you kidding? I thought Cristina's reply was helpful, particularly since I had the exact same reaction to your question that she did.
If you're looking for an American-style Thanksgiving dinner you should probably head to Ajijic. The ex-pat community there is sure to have something planned.
Me too, Bronwen. It's a very well-done and interesting restaurant.
And certainly there are lots of other options in Guadalajara
--Sacromonte can be good, but it can also be mediocre
--La Matera is marvelous (Argentine steakhouse)
--Adobe or Casa Fuerte in Tlaquepaque
