  1. Has anyone found Monk Fruit sweetener?? I don't like the aftertaste of Stevia and read thaqt Monk Fruit is also natural but with less aftertaste. I can buy thru Mercadolibre but is very expensive, or order from US cheaply but have it take a long time to arrive. Any help appreciated.
  2. I have had the same experience with Wal-Mart chicken and ribs and eggs, all smelling spoiled when just purchased. Their produce is often nasty also. I still go there but only for a few things I cannot get elsewhere.
  3. Just sent you a message, SGMike. Thanks.
  4. Does anyone know of a Mexican company that tests for toxic mold and micotoxins in houses to isolate whether they are there and identify the type?? These businesses exist north of the border, and kits can be ordered to sample and send to labs, but I am wondering if there is anything like that here. Thanks for any help.
  5. No one mentioned the Pollito Deli 9 across the street from 7-11 (just south of the Pemex) in Chapala. We think their fried chicken is better than Tony's. Haven't tried Josy's though...and want to!! We do love fried chicken.
  6. We are big fans of great burgers AND Daniel Cordero. We'll be there. Thanks for posting.
  7. I hear you have live entertainment too. Can you tell us the lineup??
  8. Oh! Just answered my own question. I just found a July 2015 article in the GDL Reporter entitled "Phony fumigators on the prowl". I knew I'd read something!! Everyone, be wary of this.
  9. We have a friend who apparently opened his house recently to some people saying they were with some free government program to spray their house and yard. He seemed very impressed with how thorough they were, even asking if he had any more rooms or closets. I was alarmed and suspicious when I heard this because I seem to remember reading something somewhere about this being a scam. I found a post from 2011 like this, but cannot find anything more recent than that. Has anyone heard of this scam, or this "free" program which I am leary of?
  10. FYI, there is ALSO an authorized Emissions Testing Center in Los Cedros, about 5 minutes north of Ixtlahuacan, or 15-20 minutes north of Chapala ... much closer than Guadalajara. Cost is $250 pesos. We got a sticker there just today. It is called AutoServicio Martinez -Techmart. Tel (376) 762-1676. Good mechanics, large covered and well equipped shop, also with computer analysis.
  11. Another recommendation for Carsten Groppe. Very dependable and quality oriented.
  12. Can't believe no one has suggested Il Giardino, a little-known gem right on the main drag in Chapala, just north of La Leña (a block north of the fountain, across from the plaza). They are open till 11 p.m. Mon-Thurs, and till 12 p.m. / midnight Fri-Sat. Their exterior is weathered wood, so it doesn't look fancy. But inside it is terraced up,up and UP the mountainside, and VERY nice. The topmost terraced area (# 4 or 5) has lovely landscaping, awesome mature trees, and a great view. They have an super extensive, somewhat upscale menu (including NOB-style steaks) and they specialize in wood-oven pizzas. We think their food rivals almost any place at Lakeside. And we tend to eat late, so it suits us. Would recommend you check it out, but stick to one of the lower terraces if you drink a lot of beer or wine with dinner.
  13. Contact Alex Peterson, apet.rapidpack@yahoo.com or cell 333 577 7765 or 331 753 8151. He does this, speaks English and is reasonably priced.
  14. I read online that the factory lost its contract with Romertopf and is no longer open. If anyone has been recently, I would love to hear that this info is wrong and they are still open!

    I was recently told that there is now a Red Lobster in GDL, near or in Andares mall.
