Currency Exchange

Often, we will take the bus to Chacala beach in Nayarit, Mexico.

Coming back to Chapala in Jalisco - as a reward to ourselves for this long winding road trip - we will treat ourselves to this particular steak house in Guadalajara.

Serving fine cuts of imported beef (along with pastas and other selections) we take the afternoon and drink some wine, having a beautiful steak dinner.

Come with us to Res Publica.

We take a taxi from Chapala Beach to the bus station in La Penita. Then we grab the bus to Guadalajara and when we arrive, we take another taxi to Res Publica.

This is approximately 4 hours from when we leave the beach, and the restaurant doesn't open until 1pm.

If we time it just right, we only have to wait a few minutes before they begin taking customers in.

Various grills

Here you see various grills built Argentine style with chains lifting the meats higher or lower on the coals.

There are different cuts of beef cooking right now, as well as sausage links.

There's nothing like that open flame flavor.

We are getting used to the terms that Mexicans and Argentines use for their different cuts of meat.

Vacio is the cut of flank steak around the belly of the animal and it is one of the most popular cuts in any Argentine Restaurant.

Bife de lomo is Filet mignon, Entrana is a thicker style flank cut and Tira de asado are short beef ribs generally cooked crispy on the outside with the bone in for tenderness and juiciness.

Bife de chorizo is a Rib Eye, and Churrasco is a NY Sirloin cut.

Ojo de bife is a huge chunky cut  of rib eye with lots of marbling.

Here is the Rib Eye that comes with a salad, bread and a chimichurri sauce.

Chimichurri is a favored Argentine sauce made of parsley, cilantro, garlic, shallots and olive oil. It is used on bread as well as grilled meats.
