  1. Ask at Superlake; I used to buy it from them all the time. If they don't have it, maybe they can get it again.
  2. You know how there are certain things that just won't stay in your head? For me, this is one - could someone please explain to me again what the difference is between the two terms in Mex?
  3. Chillin, if you get the Char Siu happening, I'll be your first customer - just let me know! I've made it here from lomo de cerdo and pierna (more fat) - got a recipe I was really happy with from https://thewoksoflife.com/chinese-bbq-pork-cha-siu/. You might want to compare it to your recipe. Took me years to find one I liked. There was a take-out joint in Edmonton that did nothing but Chinese BBQ-to-go, and they did ham sausage the same way - absolutely phenomenal! Missed them desperately all these years in Mex; it was a weekly stop.
  4. Have a craving for dark, old-fashioned bran muffins. Has anyone seen wheat bran recently and, if so, where? Superlake used to carry the Hodgson Mill brand...
  5. Would be helpful if menus on social media included an address, because not everyone knows where these places are. Beto's sounds yummy!
  6. Thanks everyone; I'll explore these options. happyjillin, I was from Edmonton too, 22 years ago. Have to make my own pierogies now but could still use some real kielbasa. These days, though, I'm more interested in learning more Asian cooking and, of course, they're very fond of pork belly...
  7. Is there a butcher in SAT or Ajijic that sells pork belly? Only need a small quantity - 1/2 to 3/4 kilo to try new recipe.
  8. If memory serves, the key kiosk by El Torito's got me a 2nd chipped key when I bought my car (only came with 1). You could ask, anyway. Never needed to have the car nearby, but I don't know where they actually got the thing (7 years ago now).
  9. $800 peso antibody test right at Ajijic Clinic last week.
  10. Dr, Karen Gonzalez Rodriguez was recommended to me and I'm hoping a few people are willing to share their experiences with and impressions of her by PM. Would be very helpful in reaching a decision on who to see.
  11. Is there any place besides Jara that sells GAC Plagas.Sin? I've been told it's the best to use indoors and harmless to pets. Can anyone verify that?
  12. Found a new website that's got me fired up to try fermenting some things. Recipes call for unchlorinated water tho, and I realized I don't know if what we get in the garaphons is appropriate. Does anyone know if they chlorinate it? I use normally get deliveries from E-Pura. Thanks!
  13. Thanks everyone. I found the guy I was originally looking for who's done work for me in the past. He changed out all the screens for the heavier mesh I had in a previous rental, even painted it, and was 1 day, start to finish. I'm happy.
  14. Who replaces window screens for a reasonable price? Need someone who'll come and give me an estimate. More important than ever with the threat of dengue, but I want the type that are a heavier metal mesh. I see it more often on screen doors...
  15. My instructions to change the PIN number CAME from Master Card/Bank of Montreal in Canada, where it's apparently easier to find a cash machine equipped to do this. I have to call them back now and request they open a new 12 hour window in which I can make the change. SOMEONE at Lakeside must have needed to make a pin change at some point; if you haven't done it here you needn't comment, because the location of such a machine is the only info I require.
