Soaking up my Saturday like 🌶🌮🌮🌮💃
La Guadalupana is a classic hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint in the heart of Montrose. Chef and owner Trancito Diaz manages the restaurant that's been open for over thirteen years. Diaz migrated to the US from Mexico in 1982 and started as a dishwasher at River Oaks Country Club and worked his way up from there.
The eatery is famous for their mole enchiladas, breakfast tacos, and flan. Today we ordered the omelette, spinach enchiladas, and bottomless coffee. Omelet Especial: tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, egg and cheese and topped with ranchero sauce. Enchiladas de Espinacas: spinach and cheese enchiladas topped with crema Poblana, mushrooms, and cilantro. The spinach tasted bright and fresh and the cream tasted like Alfredo sauce. #laguadalupana#becauseigothungry#eeeeeats
Michael Marras’ visit to Cantina La Guadalupana
The start of a personal project based on the Michael Marra song ‘Frida Kahlos’ visit to the Tay Bridge Bar’. In the song he imagines that Frida has gone to heaven only to find that the pearly gates have jammed and is asked by St. Peter if she wouldn’t mind retuning to earth and waiting in The Tay Bridge Bar in Dundee until they’re fixed.
I started thinking about this and what it would be like if Michael Mara had received a similar request but instead had been asked by St. Peter to wait in Cantina La Guadalupana in Mexico City.
I’m imagining Frida Kahlo there too and her running towards La Guadalupana, free from illness and a thousand vogue covers and both of them smoking*
* Please note that I have not been able to find any evidence that Frida ever visited La Guadalupana in Mexico City nor have I been able to find any proof that she ever visited The Tay Bridge Bar in Dundee either. #lostcontrolcollective#brianmchenry#fridakahlo#michaelmarra#taybridgebar#dundee#art#artistsoninstagram#artistsofinstagram#pencilsketch#sketchbook#mexico#mexicocity#scotland#laguadalupana#cantinalaguadalupana#illustrator#illo
"Juan Dieguito, le dijo la Virgen. Juan Dieguito le dijo la Virgen. Este cerro elijo, este cerro elijo; este cerro elijo para ser mi altar..." *Cántese con el tono apasionado de Itatí Cantoral* (Sing this with the same drunken passion as Itatí Cantoral (aka Soraya Montenegro "cries in spanish")). #laguadalupana#basilicadeguadalupe#itaticantoral#sorayamontenegro#mexico
