Dining Guide for Old Town
Casa Guadalajara, the popular Old Town restaurant owned and operated by Diane Powers. Food: Casa Guadalajara provided a disappointing experience as my friend’s sister, who has a celery allergy, was assured by the server, Vanessa, 3 times that the poblano rice contained only spinach. However, after taking a few bites, she discovered celery pieces, resulting in a severe allergic reaction.
Casa de Reyes
Great location in the middle of the marketplace with outdoor seating. Besides the great ambiance the service was excellent – I ordered the chicken mole enchiladas from the specials section and the chicken tortilla soup to warm me up on a chilly night. The soup really hit the spot and was nice and hardy with a lot of crispy tortilla strips on top. The dish also included rice and corn which was a full meal.
