This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


How to add links in comments

Hi Azul,
To be able to do this go here.
Click on Taoski and it will drop down with the html code. Can't put it in here as it turns into a link.

I am self taught on all this stuff and just figured it out myself a few days ago.
Paste the address between the "link" and what ever you want the link to say where it says "text to click on". Copy and paste the whole code in the comment and wa la there is link in the comments.

I take that code and put it in note pad or what ever on the desktop with the link to outta the cornfield ready to go and the code itself several times so when I need it I can just grab a blank and insert what I want.

Thanks for the link to your site.
Giv'em hell, Tom
