  1. If you look at the Munsa website, you'll see that the pizza 'flour' contains: harina de trigo, aceite vegetal, manteca vegetal, azúcar, sal yodatada y acondicionadores de masa. It's flour pre-prepared for pizza with a lot of extraneous ingredients, and is not the hard-wheat flour that the OP is seeking.
  2. Most drugs in Mexico have the caveat that their sale requires a prescription. However, as far as I know the only drugs that actually DO require a prescription are antibiotics and controlled substances, including many psychotropic medicines.
  3. No, it is not correct. The area code (LADA) for Guadalajara is 33. It is NOT 331. You need to separate the LADA from the telephone number. 33-1000-0000. I know it still 'seems' the same, but it is NOT the same. For example, if your dog gets out of your car and disappears in Guadalajara, a person in Guadalajara will not generally understand if the first numbers are 331. It's a TWO digit area code and an EIGHT digit phone number. The Guadalajaran will only need to call eight digits, without the LADA.
  4. ?? Two digit AREA CODES plus eight digit telephone numbers. My landline phone number in Mexico City, for example, is 55-5XXX-XXXX. Sr. Fulano's landline phone number in Ajijic is 376-766-XXXX. Sra. Fulana's landline phone number in Guadalajara is 33-3XXX-XXXX. Of course they all add up to 10 digits, but the configuration is different. I don't understand your point.
  5. Mexico City (55), Guadalajara (33), and Monterrey (81) are the only three cities in Mexico which have two-digit area codes and eight-digit telephone numbers. Here's a list of 100 Mexican cities and their clave LADA (area code): http://www.claveladade.info/
  6. MAW, talk to Jaime at Mario's. His wife Alicia is a professional baker, trained at Wilton, and HAS to be better than Soriana. I suspect she'd be glad for the work and able to do it for you.
  7. OK, MtnMama, you have thrown down the glove. I will see your Rochata pastel de tres leches and raise you one--but you have to come to Mexico City to try it!
  8. Mamá Coneja, in the retail section of the Mercado de Abastos, has every extract you could possibly need for baking. The store also carries nuts of all kinds by the kilo, chocolate by the kilo, beans, seeds, and things you never thought you needed but won't be able to live without.
  9. Suertudos! We pay 34 pesos per 20-liter garafón in the DF, plus tip.
  10. Joco, I fear that this time you are mistaken. If the raw milk you consume comes from a cow with brucellosis, chances are pretty good you will get the disease. A friend in Ajijic contracted brucellosis from raw milk and was sick for months.
  11. It is illegal to import potatoes into Mexico beyond a 16-mile distance. Read here: http://www.capitalpress.com/oregon/JO-MexicoTrade-122712
  12. Pete, I just looked at the US Consulate website. Maybe the page hasn't been updated.
  13. Take money, lots of money. It costs $50 USD or the equivalent in Mexican pesos to have a single document notarized.
  14. 15 or 16 pesos for a 19-liter garafón? That's what I was paying in Ajijic in 1999! In Mexico City, we pay 40 pesos.
