  1. Morelia restaurant recommendations?

    Fonda Marceva on Abasolo a few blocks south of Plaza de Armas.

    Had the same lunch yesterday. Tasty as always. Wanted to try the pie but none available until B returns from up north. Good reason to go back!
  3. Map (if correct) is pretty clear when enlarged. Also there's a storefront photo hiding in that yelp link. And a phone number - 33 380 84353. Looks very close to Viva Mexico. Happy hunting.
  4. RequestingReviews on Jetomate next to Ancla

    Wow. I liked the one I had today. Nice crust, FRESH tomato sauce was delicious and lightly distributed, mozzaela was good quality, etc. Adorn it however you like. Gerard also mentioned he had home-made fig ice cream. Nice! That's two of the new pizza places tried by me in the last few days. I liked them both, but no more pizza for me for a while. *burpito*
  5. Ate there tonight. Thumbs up! Good pizza, good people, good space. Slam dunk. Recommended.
  6. Fire in La Cristina

    Ja! Like I said, "FWIW". What do I know? I'm a "towny". Good luck!
  7. Fire in La Cristina

    How about....give CFE the meter number of a house connected to the pole (yours or otherwise, whomever is attached) just to get them out there and then point to the problem? Just a thought FWIW. Good luck!
  8. I noticed them opening this afternoon. Wish I'd gone there tonight instead of where friend and I ended up.
  9. Oops. Apologies for the mis-direct.
  10. Road work starting in Ajijic?

    You're no fun Colibri. I preferred the laugh-filled, eye-watering speculation for which this forum is famous! EDIT/ADDITION: I live one block above Farmacia Guadalajara in central Ajijic. It's 10:30pm. I just stepped outside and I hear heavy equipment and demolition going on from below. Who knows what tomorrow will bring!!!
  11. This is Chiquita, not a great photo per bmh, but recent. Elderly, lots of white fur, several missing teeth, somehwat hard of hearing. Again, west Ajijic area, below Danza del Sol.
  12. If it's just a 2 week rental, who cares? Pick based on LOCATION, amenities and comfort/price. So what if you don't use a room or two? You're just auditioning the area afterall. Readjust your thinking and live it up!
  13. Who is sending this?

    Don't worry. The evil HA749 is only using Chapala.com for cover. The people HA749 are really after are Blackberry users and...oh, no...Student Nurses...and...egads!!! Entropians!!!
  14. Earthquakes

    This thread is from 2010.
  15. Mexican cheese recommendation?

    Now do you believe us?
  16. Scorpions

    Buy a packet of Cynoff powder at Jara or elsehwere. $60 pesos. Dilute with water in a garden sprayer and spray around baseboards of house interior and exterior. Repeat occasionally throughout the year. No more scorpions (or cockroaches). Safe for pets.
  17. Buying a new toilet

    Why not make your own?
  18. Elegante

    I have only eaten at Elegante once, so I can't speak to consistency, but... A couple of weeks ago a friend and I went there. She and I are both difficult to please. We each had the small caesar to start, and she ordered the beef filet and I had the lightly breaded pork tenderloin with spaetzle. Shared a creme brulee for dessert. It was all absolutely perfect, thoroughly delcious. We kept looking at each other with wide eyes, as in, "Is yours as good as mine?" Of course we each tried the others food and agreed it was all delicious. Service was attentive, maybe a bit overly so that night. And yes, the room is definitely minimally decorated to the point of being stark, but I don't care about any of that if the food remains this good. I hope they keep it up!
  19. Actinver, Intercam or Monex

    Dang. My post was edited by a "member". So I'll delete what was left of it.
  20. Can We Still Pay CFE at OXXO?

    I paid my bill at OXXO a couple of days ago.
  21. Mexican cheese recommendation?

    I like this cheese also. I think it says "fuerte" on the packaging, but I equate it with a good, white, medium cheddar. And it's from Jalisco! (I think?)
  22. Spine Surgeon

    I've been battling my back for a long while and after trying several less invasive remedies, finally resigned myself to surgery. A very good friend has a relative who works at biggest hospital in Guadalajara, so she knows all of them. She recommended two neurosurgeons: Dr. Dittmar mentioned above, and Dr. Braulio Orozco Reynoso. I was unable to get a timely-enough-for-me appointment with Dr. Dittmar because he was out of town for several weeks when I called, so went with Dr. Braulio who gave me great confidence. He performed surgery in the cervical area in April, and much more recently surgery in the lumbar area. Dr. Braulio Orozco Reynoso: 33 3813 1157 / 33 3813 0440 (office numbers) His office is on Tarascos, behind Plaza México in Guadalajara. Best wishes and good luck with your decision!
  23. La Vie En Rose # 2 on Independencia in Ajijic

    Excellent! It's a relative of the delicious French pastry place on the west side so it's bound to be very good!
