comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
@Newbie: No, the 'G' is silent--at least as I've ever heard it pronounced, and according to wikipedia.

MikO: I wonder if you think the OP is asking for examples where English and Spanish differ in their phonetic spellings? Your answer might make sense in that context; but that's not what the question is about.

@RahilArora: That's what I thought you meant, and this answer doesn't address that.

@WalterMitty: Saying that "México" should be "Méjico" is an over-simplification. But read about that here.

The OP does ask for exceptions to the phonetic rules--look at the title. And "Words that are spoken differently than the way they are spelled" is another way of saying exactly the same thing. And the words in your answer are spelled exactly as they are spelled.

But you didn't. You explained how words spelled with 'j' sound, how words spelled with 'g' spelled, and how words spelled with 'gu' sound. You just explained three phonetic rules and gave examples. Your examples in the last sentence are not examples of violating phonetic rules. Every one of those words follows the rules. hoguera, guía, Miguel, etc...

These explain the phonetic rules, not exceptions to them.

As the vocabulary for things like clothing and food vary greatly by region, it would be helpful if you could tell us which region's vocabulary interests you (if you know).
