Mexico Dinner
Guadalajara, March 21, 2019
At the renowned La Tequila Restaurant
" The gastronomic richness of Mexico is due to its geographic, climatological and cultural diversity "

For its first event of the year, the enthusiastic Bailliage of Guadalajara (Bailli: Fernando Brizuela) had a wonderful dinner at La Tequila. This renowned restaurant in the heart of the city has delighted our palates since 1995.

We were presented with a wonderful combination of Mexican food - mostly prepared using local delicacies - combined with Mexican wine and spirits.

“The gastronomic richness of Mexico is due to its geographic, climatological and cultural diversity, but the love and passion for our craft complement the equation”, said Julio Sánchez, Chef of La Tequila when presenting the menu.
