SanJalisco Review

This old-time, sun-filled, colorful, family-run restaurant is a neighborhood gem (and that's not just because it serves breakfast all day). Try the hearty chilaquiles, made from day-old tortillas cut into strips and cooked with cheese, eggs, chilies, and sauce. Or order eggs scrambled with cactus or with chicharrones (crisp pork skins) and served with freshly made tortillas. Soup offerings change daily, with Tuesday's albondigas (meatballs) comfort food at its best. On weekends, adventurous eaters may opt for birria, a spicy goat stew, or menudo, a tongue-searing soup made from tripe, calf's foot, and hominy. The latter is a time-honored hangover cure—but don't come expecting margaritas here (although you will find beer and sangria). Bring plenty of change for the jukebox loaded with Latin hits.
