Thanks for the additional advice Gourmaleta. I am all for sashimi-grade mexi fish. Doubt I'll convince my wife to eat any menudo though, or anything with tripe in it. We'll try to figure out the cleanest, freshest places to get our south-o-border sushi. I prefer raw fish (if it is safe & good) over something like civiche, where it's been modified/cooked with citric acid. I like civiche too though. Now I'm thirsty!
I had heard about the Agave Azul distillery before. Word is that the expeience is kind of overated there, if you've done this kind of thing at other places where your get try more interesting flights anejos & reposados. I thought I read it was no longer active as well. True or false? We always love a visit to a good barrel-aging facility. So is it really worth it? A bit of a drive too right?
What is the finest artisan distillery we can visit (and sample) in the area if we have a car? I wish I was within driving distance to El Llano Distillery in Jalisco, makers of Arrette Gran Clase...my fave. How far?
Interesting thread. I really appreciate the time & thought from DL & Dee. OK, so we're heading there for the first time in 3 days. We’ll be there for 9. So far the list I've gleened from this forum is:
pescado zarandeado…eat some
1. La Copita
How does this list sound? Any “must eats” missing?
BUT, I want nothing more than to eat crow and come back telling people how awesome it can be. So bring it on! Any other recommendations for restaurants, shopping, bull fights, hikes, etc?
