So gotta say it was a BEAUTIFUL day in Mazatlan today. Absolutely gorgeous. Not a cloud in the sky. We really had a great day.
Oddly enough though I got burnt today! I thought I was sufficiently tanned that I didn't have to worry about it but when we met our friends for dinner all that she could keep commenting on is how red my face was. Then FranL (from Trip Advisor) stopped by to say hello because I had said we were having dinner at Minnesota Café and also commented on how red I was. Weird - on what day is again? Oh yeah, day twelve. Didn't think I'd have to worry so much about sunscreen when we've already tanned so well.
Nice to see you again Fran. Thanks for stopping by! We also saw Marcel and Pat again today who we met on the road several days ago and have run into about three or four times already.
So my quest for great food continues to be a bust! As reported on another post my breakfast at Allegro Café was a disappointment (surprisingly). We skipped lunch cuz we had an early dinner reservation with friends. We went to Minnesota Café. I gotta say, we won't go there again. We've been there before and weren't impressed. It was really hot in the restaurant the last time we visited and they didn't turn the AC on and it wasn't much better this time. Also, I can't stand the ambiance. The lights are bright, bright, bright and I'm all about the ambiance. There was supposed to music tonight but there was none.
And the food - well, I was totally disappointed! Are the prices and deals great - absolutely! You can't beat it. Two for one steaks, ribs etc. and then 20% off on Tuesdays and Thursdays with bottles of wine for 70 pesos. Where can you beat that? But the ribs were drowning in sauce and the sauce was not that good. Not anywhere near as good as Fat Fish. Our friends that we went with though will never eat at Fat Fish so I asked them why. They said, "Have you ever seen that grill? They never clean it." I don't know but the taste is so good that it can't be that bad! And at the heat that they run it, it must kill anything bad that is on it. Anyways, we won't be returning to Minnesota Café. I always look for great food and a great ambiance and will pay more for it if I have to. Don't get me wrong - this is a great place to go to if you're on a budget and looking for a deal. I'm just looking for something more.
Only a few nights left and my last couple days have been a bust in terms of food so I'll have to fix that! We have a Mexican party planned with friends tomorrow night which will be great. Carne Asada and all the fixings - and Tequila for the guys! Thursday we are heading to the Aquarium but hope to fit a lunch in there somewhere. Thursday night is a free night so maybe Mr. Lobster for the Lobster Thermidor which I've been wanting to try forever. Friday night we have reservations at El Presidio and it is Art Walk Night in Plaza Machado. Then flying home on Saturday - to hopefully prevent any flooding that may occur in Edmonton if there is a fast thaw from all the snow we received this winter.
Good news - we've already booked a condo for a MONTH for December and over Xmas and New Years. Way too excited!!
