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.


What Kind Of Meat Is That

There's a horsey conference in Las Vegas for an interesting reason.

And then there is the why of it and there are many of those.

Once you try it it seems you want more. Personally I'm hungry and wouldn't think twice about haveing a horse steak fresh grilled over mesquite. You betcha-bring it on.


  1. It's damn silly to be a cow eater and not be willing to eat horse. Horses sure as hell aren't much smarter, and they're vegetarians too.

  2. Better us than dog food. At least give people a real market for this meat outside the US where common sense and open minds prevail over the stupid here.

  3. I had horse steak decades ago when I was in Belgium.
    Actually quite tasty.
    Taste buds will be changing as the price of food rises.

  4. Had lunch at a new place today. Would have been better off with horse meat.

  5. I've never had horse. Would be snacking on Republicans still be cannibalism? After all, if horse is OK, why not horse's ass?

  6. I've been watching A bunch of episodes of "Bizarre Foods" and I think that fit's the criteria of food TC.
