Default food in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Guadalajara

Hi All,

I will be traveling to San Miguel, Guanajuato, Guadalajara and maybe Lake
Chapala the first week in April and would like some food suggestions to try,
both restaurants and markets to browse for hard to find supplies. I live in
Austin, TX, so I'm looking for a break from TexMex, and the only things I
would bring back are items that I can't get here. Are there any unusual
kitchen gadgets that I should look for?

From a.f.m-x archives, it looks like birria is the specialty of Guadalajara.
I didn't find any specific foods mentioned for Guanajuato, and I would like
to try something more than the candy mummies I got last time I was there.
San Miguel sounds like it is bowing under the culinary pressure of the large
population of USA expats, but there must be some original flavors surviving
that.

Thanks,
Leona

I just wanted to say that GTO is so beautiful and you are so lucky to go, I
have a lot of family there!! I think that you can get all the kitchen
gadgets here in the US but the thing I can never find is a good tamale pan.
I hope you have a great time there and enjoy yourself!!

In Guadalajara you can try ahogadas (a true submarine sandwich). If the
restaurant Si Como No is still open, it was very good (although not an
ahogada place). The glorietta in/on Chapalita has several really nice
small places. In the Tlaquepaque area of Guadalajara, there is a very
famous restaurant - Restaurant Sin Nombre. The Chilis en Nogada were
excellent. You'll also appreciate the open courtyard dining and their
bug control (peacocks).

Lake Chapala has a lot of expat US and Canadian citizens and there are
several good places. I cannot remember their names as I found them by sight.

You're going to really enjoy eating in Guanajuato. It is still a college town
and lunch is the comida corrida aimed at student budgets. We were there last
fall and the typical comida corrida was 25 pesos ($2.50) and that got you
bread, soup, entree, pasta, and dessert.

Don't miss the church, La Valenciana. If you pass through Santa Rosa en route
to Dolores Hidalgo, be sure to pick up a bottle of the local membrillo liqueur.

As you can tell, I prefer Guanajuato to San Miguel San Miguel leaves me cold
but Guanjuato has so much charm. Just hanging out at La Union plaza makes my
evening.

Also, check out the local tortillas enchiladas, that will be topped with
carrots and potatoes.

And in the main market, you'll find a corner where they sell pork roast
sandwiches. Delicious.

I can't help but notice that "ahogadas" seems like it might share a common
linguistic root with "hoagie". Can anyone tell me if the two words are
somehow related?
