  1. Where Do You Go For a BIG Salad??

    How about Yves, they have a great salad bar with all sorts of good things you can add to your plate. Make it as big as you want or go back for seconds.
  2. Immigration issue with Mexican cruise

    My wife and I took a cruise this year with a stop in Cozumel. At no time were we asked or checked for visas. We just carried our passports and resident card when we left the ship. I have been on several cruises and have never had any problems off ship.
  3. Cooking Chinese/Asian food here

    Hi mkshawn, what you see there is a barrel smoker I built last year. I use it for slow cooking pork butt and brisket. Also as a smoker to smoke sausage. Thought I would paint my wok cooker to match my smoker. If you are interested I can send you some more pictures. Half Glass

  5. Cooking Chinese/Asian food here

    Well I had to chime in on this subject. I have been cooking Chinese food for over 35 years, and love it. Coming from the Seattle area, we had a unlimited supply of fresh ingredients to choose from. When I moved here I brought three of my woks down, a 10", 12" and a 18". For heat I purchased a stand alone gas cooker at a local hardware store, purchased a good sized burner at the Monday market in Chapala. And with a little paint and some fine tuning I have a great heat source for my Chinese cooking. I cook outdoors to eliminate any odors and keep the mess down. (Splatter) As for ingredients I have found several places at the wholesale market (Abastos) in Guadalajara. Good selection and good prices. Super Lake has a good selection for the area, but you pay for it. I stock up when I go to Guadalajara.

  8. Been using Kodi for sometime and love it. Lots of good builds to choose from. With a little patience you can watch about anything you want from current series to old westerns.
  9. BASA

    OK, so Basa is in the catfish family, sort of. I have always liked catfish much better than Talapia. My question is, is there a red Basa. I see Wal-Mart sells red and blanco Basa.
  10. Swiffers

    I purchased a spray mop that has replaceable micro fiber pads made by Rubbermaid from Amazon. It comes with several pads and two refillable bottles. You can put your own cleaning solutions in. I use white vinegar and water to clean our tile floors. Much less expensive than the Swiffer.
  11. Who has THE best guacamole at lakeside?

    Had the guacamole at the Beer Garden. It was so-so. Had better at other places. I thought the guacamole that they used to serve at the Cozumel restaurant was much better.
  12. Robertos Restaurante

    My wife and I along with another couple had dinner there a few weeks ago. It was on a Friday night. The place was quite busy and the waiter was running all over. Food was fair at best and the service was also a mess. We have dined there before and had a pretty good experience, food pretty good and service OK. With so many good places to dine it may be some time before we return.
  13. Braised Pork Shank

    Hey, thanks for all the input. I tried the braised pork hock at Charlotte"s restaurant and it was spot on. Cooked just right and the sauce that was served with it was fantastic.
  14. Amazon.com.mx

    I have purchased items from both Amazon U.S. and M.X. I have found that some items from the M.X. site are more expensive due to the item has some import fees on it. I shop around in the M.X. site and sometimes I find a similar item at a larger discount. Good service and prompt delivery. Have to love Amazon.
  15. Braised Pork Shank

    Well ever since the El Sarape restaurant closed I have been looking for a great braised pork shank. I have to say I really loved the shanks at El Sarape, slow cooked and served with a delicious red sauce. Oh and lots of tortillas. Any suggestions?
