A Taste of Aztlán

El Sabor de Juarez balances north and south

Meet El Sabor de Juarez, a joint where eaters can relish the best chuleta a la Mexicana ($9.95) in town or feast on a combo plate complete with challengingly piquant carne adovada and perfectly hot, fresh and pillowy sopaipillas.

Burqueños Learn to Cook

Jan’s on 4th owners work as private chef, caterer, cooking instructor, baker and farmer

The cooking school, Jan’s on 4th, is inside a 100-year-old adobe home in the North Valley that Jan’s husband, C.E., renovated when they bought the place. It’s a small house, but taking down a couple walls and installing an industrial oven and six-burner rangetop made it into an ideal spot for small classes of aspiring cooks.
