    Excellent point. While I continue to be alarmed at the price of raw beef, considering there is an overload of it up north, if you want to buy a rib steak at Tony's ($600 a kilo), fuggedaboudit. Caesar said it is too expensive to carry anymore. The New York cuts are $560/k, so any restaurant serving quality beef is going to have killer high prices. Which makes Tony's arrerchera at his new place at $189 both the most expensive cut on the menu, and the best piece of meat around.

    Don't forget that Omar at Cadillac Furniture has been building furniture too (even recliners); he says if you can give him a picture, he can build it.

    Just as importantly, "modern Mexican" uses typical regional ingredients in unusual ways. If you can get it, NETFLIX has a series called Somebody Feed Phil. Episode 6 is Mexico City, and is a wonderful journey through Mexican food, from street tacos to the revival of hand-made corn tortillas at upscale restaurants by young entrepeneurs, to some dazzling ideas of Mexican plates kicked up several notches. Also can be found on the torrent sites. In fact, it's great to watch this unassuming TV producer get his mind blown in locations all over the world. He also had a series called I'll Have What Phil's Having. (With the fed cutbacks in entertainment funding, PBS had to give up the show, and it too moved to Netflix.) What we are discussing as "modern Mexico" will be easily discernable by its presentation and uniqueness. The artichoke dish mentioned may indeed be unique and delicious, but it (to me) is not an upscale twist on anything Mexican I have seen. Perhaps his inclusion of Mexican tarragon, which I've never heard of. However, that being said, it sounds delicious, and if Bobby can present these kinds of dishes at a consistent level of quality, then let's go for it.

    Tiling roof

    I'm sick of redoing my roof every few years, and am considering any possible alternatives. I wondered about tiling the flat part of my roof, but know that this doesn't seem to be a popular option. Does anyone have any experience living in a house with a tiled roof, or know any reason why this may (or may not) be a good idea? The flat part of my roof (about 1/2 the roof total) does have drainage for rain water.

    The Search function at top right brings up many options for "stove repair." That said, Gualberto Real and son, 765 5653, are tops and if it can be fixed, they will fix it for you and do a spectacular job. They've been terrific for us.

    Thank you for the references. I am wondering why my Google search didn't find any of them. I read all of them and gathered that "Modern Mexican" is using non-traditional ingredients in regional specialties, with the emphasis on freshness and artistic presentation. Having spent most of my life enjoying California's version of Mexican cuisine, I was quite disappointed in the "Mexican food" available in Mexico, but see hope in the innovations. Looking at Bobby's menu, I see a somewhat scaled back version of the Modern Mexican trend, such as: "Fresh artichoke stuffed with jumbo shrimp and deviled crab, topped with a Mexican tarragon mustard sauce with a side of drawn butter". In other words, fresh from the cook's imagination.😉 Sounds interesting, especially if he can use Salinas valley artichokes, which are far better than any Mexican sourced ones I've found. Whether this type of dish qualifies as "Modern Mexican" is perhaps in the mind of the diner. But as usual, my judgment will be based on my taste buds' response.😋
  14. The electronic ignition on 2 of the burners of my gas stove don't work. Can anyone recommend a service man. I live in San Juan Cosala.

    Bisbee Gal, I Googled "Mexican Modern cuisine" and drew a blank. Could you please explain how it differs from regular Mexican cuisine a bit beyond "MM is a sophisticated take on traditional foods". Maybe give an example? I'm puzzled, curious and doubt that I'll have the opportunity to try those restaurants you named. Since I'm not a Facebooker, I didn't see the build up to the opening or the menu before going to the place.
  18. In that case, I'll correct my recommendation to: seamstresses who MAY be able to do the job. However, I'll guess that at least one of them can direct her to someone who CAN do it.🙂

    His menu is on his FB page. Before he opened his early posts at FB were all about serving Modern Mexican food....he even cited references to what he sought to achieve for those unfamiliar with Modern Mexican cuisine. MM is a sophisticated take on traditional foods and there are many restaurants serving it in CDMX (Pujol set the standard) and in SMA (Jacinto 1930, Aperi, Nomada)....we have been to quite a few of them. We were looking forward to having one here. However as Bobby's menu evolved, he stopped talking about MM and his FB page abandoned its focus to MM. His food may be perfectly fine but it is not the cuisine he originally said he would serve.

    The reason brisket is expensive is easy. USDA Choice Angus briskets cost about $220p/kilo at Costco, which is where Smokehouse buys them. You will lose 40-45% of that raw weight after being smoked so $220 cost goes to about $400p/k, not counting the cost of labor and smoking wood and profit.
  21. Just because someone is a good seamstress, doesn't mean she can do the job. The OP knows of which she speaks- a serger is needed for t-shirt fabric. Here they call a serger an "over" as in overlock machine. It uses 3-5 threads which all connect and form a stretchy seam or hem.

    Speaking of Mexican dishes. Many years ago on my first trip to Mexico,, I saw chili and cheese on the menu at a restaurant. Coming from Oklahoma I like chili carne with cheese and onion on top. When I got my order it was chili peppers in a cheese sauce. I decided in the future I had better make sure I knew what I was ordering.

    That's correct. I have been to the new location with a friend, however, who is pleased with the fabric she purchased and the cushions you recovered for her terrace.

    iLox @ LCS?

    U probably already know this but... there are some very good cellphone service data speeds in places around Lakeside, both with Telcel and AT&T. How about at your Fracc? If good you could tether a PC to that service using WiFi.
