Begin your gastronomic journey with a stroll in the Downtown area. Taste a tejuino (traditional drink) with ice cream and when you feel ready let your smell and palate lead the way. The table is set and the most authentic flavors of Zapopan await you.
Its traditional streets shelter you with their warmth until you reach the Fonda de Doña Gabina Escolástica, a traditional small restaurant that preserves the folklore and the original tastes of Mexican cuisine. The facade may go unnoticed but inside it hides one of the culinary gems of Zapopan. Pozole, quemaditas (toasted tortillas with cajeta), its sopes and stew tacos are served in colorful tables and dishes.
Following the family tradition set by Doña Gabina, Hostería del Ángel was born; it is a restaurant serving delicious meats and cold cuts, with the same Mexican style, serving traditional dishes and following traditional recipes. On weekends they prepare suckling pig and on week days pastrami and pig loin.
If you are thirsty or in the mood for a drink, just in front of Doña Gabina, Carmen Cantina opens her doors serving succulent craft beers, offering a little vanguard in perfect harmony with local tradition. Choose your next dish under candlelight: Marinated octopus, aguachile… or let the waiter recommend you a specialty. This is a gastronomic tour you will never forget.
