    La Paceña

    La Paceña is great. And yes, the sashimi appetizers are like candy. I find it impossible not to order them. Rafa is a very good waiter, as are others there. They are firing on all cylinders.
  2. Five of us ate there last night. WOW! Food with FLAVOR!!! Wonderful. I had the Boudin balls and stuffed mushrooms. Fantastic. Among other things at our table were Shrimp Toast, Etoufee, and Jambalaya. Everyone liked it.
  3. They delivered to my house (Ajijic) yesterday. Santorini is E-pura now. New name.
  4. The last meal I had at Emanuel's, a few weeks ago, was one of the best meals I've had in 12 years liviing here.

    Agree completely. I've eaten at Elegante a couple times recently. They serve high quality, well-prepared food, but the menu isn't very interesting. Emmanuel's has, I think, more interesting and "better" food. But I also agree with the others, if the wife wants Elegante then the OP would be a fool not to take her there on their 40th Anniversary.
  6. And they re-branded/re-named themselves "E-Pura".
  7. There is a place that does aluminum welding on the road leaving Chapala going toward Mezcala. I can't remember the name or location exactly but it's (maybe) a mile or so outside of Chapala on the left/north side of the road.
  8. She's a friend of mine and is very talented. And....nobody has seen her work before! All are invited!
  9. 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.
  11. 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."
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
