Moving in out of the city..
By bye Mexico City for now.. Looking forward to getting some fresh air! My nozzle feels like it’s done a whole box of ‘wolf of wall street’ donuts!!
So for the last breakfast I went to what is thought of as the best breakfast in the city.. (Am told…)..
A short walk from my hotel to this place was just the way to start the morning .. It really was.. and it opens at 8am.. There was already a short line when I got there for 7:45!
Oh and also had to pass through a customs style scanner to get to stand in the line.. Welcome to downtown Mexico City I guess!!
The place was already filling up with ‘suits’.. Yet I was about eight people from the front.. Cool!
The door opened and I was seated fast..
Am told this cook is highly regarded for keeping it real and traditional. Ok.. That’s got my interest up.. It doesn’t open for dinner just a breakfast and brunch.. Wish I had come for brunch.. There was a good reading lamb dish on the menu.. Hmm yeah the menu..
When it is also written in American English I know two things..
First.. It ain’t gonna be the super authentic that I am pining for.. There are so many street side stalls that the driver takes us past that I it’s wish we could stop at.. Ahhh well.. Feck it ..
Second .. I better double check my wallet…
Ok.. Let’s eat..
First the hot chocolate .. Very nice.. Twizzled with a spoon thingy to froth and mix it up.. No longer will I view hot chocolate as a nighttime affair!
The menu read well , I didn’t have much time on my side so quickness was needed in the choice .. The place was also getting pretty busy indeedo !
Went for a pastry first.. Cheeky really as it was offered like a bread basket.. So you think it’s free.. Humph! There goes the same price as two packs of cigarettes and a Pepsi..
The dish decided upon is a beef with scrambled eggs in a red watery sauce thing .. served with corn tortillas.. I heard people decree that “they make them fresh here font you know”.. Bleeding right they should!! Sheesh already!
I have to admit it was rather good.. Then came some free bread.. Yet the ‘ butter’ which was like a curdled type of clotted cream where you scooped up the whey bits ( is that right?).. Umm there was a charge for that though..
Bang goes that next Pepsi ..
It was ok.. Interesting.. In the words of my blogger pal Jaquie .. Would I have it again?
Probably not.. Sorry .. ACTUALLY NO! am not sorry.. Humph ..
lunch at work was better.. a spicy beef dish with rice.. A piece of fried fish .. Yup fish.. And alfalfa.. I really have re-found my liking of it since being here..
On the drive into the next district we stopped for a pee break.. There was this wonderful looking pot with pieces of sausage and porky wonderful ness bubbling away in pork lard I was informed..
No time to stop days the driver and also the ministry host we have with us..
