La Gorda - Restaurant Guadalajara - Mexico

This downtown branch of La Gorda, the family restaurant that began as a street stall in 1956 (operated by "La Gorda" aka Josefina GarcĂ­a RodrĂ­quez), nearly always has a line outside. Justly renowned for its tasty Jaliscan cuisine, this unpretentious open-air dining room is a good place to try Guadalajara's famous "torta ahogada" (drowned sandwich, 28 pesos). This dish consists of a perfectly toasted bread roll, filled with hot roasted pork and dunked in an oregano-spiced tomato sauce; it is served with hot sauce and onions on a traditional clay platter. Overall prices are cheaper than at La Chata down the street.
