On the last night in Chiapas, our client Lenn treated us gourmet dinner at the fancy and chic El Giraldillo Gourmet in the capital city Tuxtla Gutierrez. Apparently the governor recommended it as it’s his favorite restaurant in town. Once again it’s wonderful to have Lenn to handle the ordering. Though that also means I don’t know the names of some of these dishes. It’s a nice restaurant but the price is very affordable, most dishes are under $15. Chiapas price.
The service was top notch. When they brought out the dishes they seperated them for us. The tacos were the most delicate tasting tacos I’ve ever had. Good shrimp and meat with refine tasting sauce, very very good. Duck meat to make your own tacos (green color tortillas comes in a seperate basket).
Gourmet churros, chocolate souffle with vanilla icecream and Flan. I like the churros the most.
I was introduced to this alcoholic coffee drink Carajillo. Originally from Spain, in Mexico they use liquor 43 to mix with the espresso instead of brandy or rum. Creamy and very rich. It’s so delicious! I got a bottle of 43 at the airport and tried it at home. Roughly about 2/3 liqor and ice + 1/3 espresso.
This concludes my trip to Chiapas. Next food entry back to LA~
