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.


Just Because A Nutter Says So Does Not Make It True

And these people are more than likely educated. We have more than any other country in the world but choose to live in caves. Worthy of air time - I don't think so but the crazy's want to believe so badly.

  1. I look forward to throwing a chunk of that miracle calf on my grill when he's a bit bigger, but why wait I like veal too.

  2. Do ya think it will taste any better being veal from heaven?

  3. Veal done Scollapini style couldn't get more heavenly.

  4. This is just the latest example of stupidity at this time of the year. It looks more like the perfect target to drop the sledgehammer on when this divine bovine is turned into burgers.

  5. I saw some Jersey's there but that is no Holstein nor a shorthorn, what is that a mutt?

  6. Well today a snowflake landed on my windshield and it looked just like...


    random genetics affects life.


    sound familiar?

  7. Average Patriot- Is a Jersey what we call a Brown Swiss? First of all it's a Christian Cow: so is Sarah Palin come to think of it.
