  1. I grew up a few hundred miles from Castroville, California, the "Artichoke Capital of the World" their Chamber of Commerce insists. That's an alcachofa leaf, I say. 😎 Nice review Computerguy.

    I ate at Elena's for the third time this evening. And I liked it for the third time. Best if I live it at that, I guess.
  3. Good ol' giltner, continuing to haunt and spook from afar. Even Breitbart admits: "The registration form on the DNC website require that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers. It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns."
  4. Rolly Brook was a kind and generous person who, over the internet, helped a lot of us figure out how to move to Mexico, and he did it with extraordinary grace. When he moved his life here, México gave him a giant, welcoming hug. And he hugged México back. Thank you for all those lessons Rolly and RIP.
  5. I've lived here long enough to know not to expect "everything right" when a restaurant opens. And yes, this is definitely a family run operation. So while I usually insist on waiting a couple of weeks before trying a place, I disregarded that in this case. Tonight I went there for the second time because some friends really wanted to try it out. We were a party of five and intentionally chose to go "late", arriving at 7:15-7:30, hoping they'd be less busy, etc. We didn't want to overwhelm them during rush hour, etc. Their menu is extensive. Being a Friday night I thought they'd come back to the table and say "we've run out of that". Nope. Five people ordered five different items and all arrived in a timely manner. And it was all hot. And the salsas were great, again. And everyone seemed happy. Admittedly, I liked what I had tonight (Chile Colorado) better than what I had the first time (a smothered burrito), but that's just me and my taste. Prices are so reasonable at Elena's, trying it out is not placing a big bet. Roll the dice.
  6. I noticed it yesterday and ate there last night. The salsas were GREAT. I'd add friendly service and very reasonable prices to the above review. I look forward to trying different stuff on their menu.
  7. I'm not even that picky. I'd be happy with a place that serves a basic, simple, consistently good chile relleno.

    An absurdly stupid, invisible location. Irregular hours. AND understaffed. The recipe for a place determined to fail. After 11 years here, I quit chasing "promising" new restaurants a long time ago.
  9. All of which begs a question only the moderators can answer: If a forum member reveals himself to be a scumbag by what he posts, is it OK to call him a scumbag in a follow-up? Or is that a violation of board rules? Herman, I replied to your pm, scumbag.
  10. I knew what it was and I'm 58. (And I have absolutely no interest in UFC.) Quit while you're behind Cedros. 😎 Sorn: Unless there is some other huge event at the same time, I bet they'd turn it on for you at El Bar Co. in Ajijic (by the Pemex station). Lots of good TV screens, sports programming, etc.
  11. Sounds like you want to treat employees like shit and shouldn't have moved here in the first place. Just saying...
  12. Where were you two weeks ago when I needed that number bmh? Jaja. I was never at home when he passed by so finally had to put a note on the garage door asking that he call me. He did, yes that's the #, and he took away my dead 20 year old dryer the following day. (That, by the way, is a truck that patrols Ajijic. Not sure if there are different trucks in different towns.)
