The hamburger guy

Has anyone seen the hamburger guy around town this season? I'm referring to the gentleman who usually sets up his cart just across from the basketball court. Not sure if I'd call his burgers food, art or both, but they are darn good and just watching him cook is a show in itself.

That's good to know. Now the people of Phoenix will have something to be proud of cause you sure don't have much of a football team. 58-0 Really! And at the hands of a first year rookie quarterback. This might be a good time to sneak out of town and hold up in Zihua until the football season is over.

p.s. I don't want to hear anything about the Giants

This thread reminded me of the woman I called the bread lady when we were there 2 years ago. She walked the neighborhood around Playa La Madera every morning selling those small loaves of bread (what are they called?). Hope she's still making her rounds when we're in Zihua a couple weeks from now.

25 years ago we stayed at a little condo property in Ixtapa called the Coral Ixtapa back in the residential area behind the golf course. When we would take our morning walks, we would see a little bakery delievery truck making the rounds to some of the residents as well as a few little hotels back there. We could buy "fresh" bakery right off the truck direct from the driver. We found out a couple years later that they were part of a restaurant/bakery (Montmarte) that was on the corner across from the Dorado. The restaurant closed and they moved the bakery several times, down sizing each time and eventually closed for good. When they were in a little location behind what is now the General, we would go there for coffee and fresh rolls every morning. I would bring them a pound of butter on our first day in town and they would keep it refrigerated for me. Then every morning when we would stroll over and purchase our fresh bakery and rolls, my butter was still there from the day before. Like the corner candy store we had where I grew up, I miss them both.

The "Bollio" lady seems to have retired as I have not seen her for a couple of years. I loved getting some each AM hot & fresh. So Good!

ted- I liked that story.

There is a bakery truck that parks on a side street every day on Isla Mujeres and sells baked goods to passersby. I like it. :)

Thanks for the info Imanze! Yeah, I bought from her too, just for the experience of it. I'd usually buy 6 bollos (thank you, peddler), which 2 years ago cost 15 pesos, and pay with a 20 or 50 peso note. She'd put the note in one pocket, then from another pull out a bag of coins, and start counting my change in 50 centavo coins, knowing I'd eventually give in and tell her to keep the change. It was our little game, and from my perspective, we both came out winners. :-)
