Recently, The Daring Gourmet visited Casa Guadalajara and wrote this review about their great experience! We loved hearing about the extra-tender beef in their Enchiladas de Guacamole, tasty Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri and kid-approved Deep Fried Ice Cream.

Serving up festive fare and classic cocktails with a twist, Diane Powers’ award-winning Bazaar del Mundo restaurants – Casa Guadalajara, Casa de Pico, Casa de Bandini and Casa Sol y Mar – now present a unique menu that incorporates traditional holiday flavors into authentic Mexican offerings, available through the New Year.
The restaurants are beautifully decorated for holiday cheer with colorful Christmas trees dressed in handmade Mexican ornaments, Mexican paper flowers, donkey, bull and horse piñatas, painted tin ornaments, and lighted chili ristras. Strolling mariachis add to each restaurant’s cheerful ambiance.
Casa Guadalajara’s holiday menus includes Turkey Mole Tamales, a beloved Mexican tradition, filled with tender turkey, raisins, chopped pecans and apples, all topped with a rich mole sauce and sesame seeds. Served with achiote vegetables and black beans.
Other seasonal specials include: Enchiladas Poblanas, Enchiladas de Picadillo con Papa, Chipotle Cranberry Chicken and Crema de Elote con Pollo.
Through December 15, guests can buy a $50 gift card at any of the restaurants and receive a free $10 gift card; a $25 free gift card comes with the purchase of a $100 gift card.
All the Bazaar del Mundo Restaurants present a beautiful environment for family or corporate parties, especially while splendidly decorated for the season. Catering is also available.
