  1. Yes Joel is very creative. We ate the lumpia, the boudin balls and the avacado toast appetizers. All good and presented beautifully. My favorite was the avacado toast. Also ordered the jambalaya and etouffe. Both good. The chairs weren't very comfortable and the garden is a work in progress. So nice to have a new restaurant with NOLA/ Cajun cooking. We'll definately go back.

  2. So disappointed with the consistency of dishes at Min Wah. Chef specialty dishes like orange beef range from delicious to blah. Itt's embarass8ng when you tout dishs to experienced diners before taking them to the restaurant and they really drop the ball. So wish they would get their act together.

    It sounds like 15D is often under construction in one spot or another every year.  We are leaving on October 30 and have all our reservations along the way since we have a yellow Lab and have to have pet-friendly hotels. It is 185 miles from our home near Scottsdale, AZ to  Nogales, where we will stop for the night in order to get an early start from the border at the Mariposa Truck Crossing outside Nogales. Then we are planning to stop in Navajoa(400 miles) and the next night in Mazatlan(350 miles) on our way to Ajijic(335 miles). On the other hand, if we have to go to Laredo, that is a 1065 miles (long 2 days)journey from our house. Then it sounds like crossing the border there can be really congested and take a long time. Then we have to drive 650 miles to Ajijic, stopping in Matajuala for one night.  

    Pros and cons of each plan? Thoughts and opinions from you seasoned veterans out there? Many thanks.

    Have made the trips you've described with exactly the same stops many times. You may also consider going through Ciudad Juarez with overnight in Jimenez. Cuts one day off the Laredo-Matehuala route

     

  4. A party of 10 of us ate at a this new restaurant last night and had a wonderful evening. The baked brie appetizer and lobster entre were rated most highly by five of us that ordered them but everything was good. The service was exceptional and all of us felt the value was good. My only criticism is that the decor is a little sparce, but we trust that will be remedied in time and I am happy to recommend this new addition to the lakeside dining scene

  5. Bread stale and dry. Pepper steak had been defrosred in a mictowave oven and was served ice cold in center. Escargots were tiny and onion soup only average. Loved my meals when Remy's was at Tres Leones but something has changed. If that's not enough for you, suggest you go waste your money and findout for yourself.
