OK, the end of the current season closes in upon those of us who proudly call Yelapa home. My wife, Diana’s last night in town before heading “al norte” called for just the right touch. This was a no-brainer, it was off to Shambhala. Diana requested a masterfully crafted strawberry rum punch while I refused to deviate from my norm—a lime margarita on the rocks no salt. We listened with anticipation as each libation was individually created. Our drinks arrived in advance of the setting sun, so that the pastels of the sunset provided the backdrop for the enjoyment of the beverages before us. In due time, Diana’s Arrechera Role arrived. Now arrechera is roughly the equivalent of a prime cut of steak. Ray prepares this dish with two slabs of steak separated by infused goat cheese. The end effect is to cause acute cerebral arrest punctuated by endless “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOs.” My selection was the Shrimp Costa Azul which consists of four giant shrimp wrapped in bacon and grilled. It is to die for. Both plates were complimented with rice, steamed vegetables and garlic bread. Before we pushed back from the table, it had already been defined as a night to remember. Buen Provecho!
