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.


Check Out

Yea that's what has to be done in the side bar cuz the chair has kicked my ass for the last two nights. After work I need to bang some stuff out that's been on my mind and one is the lack of common sense in our society.

Glancing this morning PM has a great post up on his Family and Friends Blog and the new addition to the blog roll is Rude Kitty that cracks me up and it's funny but just as sad really. Then Cujo at Slobber & Spittle has a post up about Marc Emery that is worth the read for sure.

It is definitely fall now and I gotta get the hell out of here. Have a good one and thanks for taking the time to stop by where there wasn't much to see today.


  1. Thanks for the mention. Have a good outing.

  2. I just br'd Cujo and Rude Kitty too! It's great to find good blogs when so many folks are quitting blogging.

    Hugs to you an thanks for your kind words over at my place OF. ;)

  3. A 2003 BUICK LASABRE IS A DANGEROUS WEAPON!!! Driven, if you can say that, by an elderly person at high speed it killed 2 really good people who were out for a nice bike ride on a beautiful Sat. morning. They were on a vacation, too. Death is faster than Jesse James and meaner than Black Bart: so are Buicks.
