Everyone's kind of distracted this time of the year. Here are photos of revisits to two places that I'd like to clear out of my memory card before the year ends.
The Lion's Share:
Especially since She's really gotten to enjoy a nice cocktail now and then.
And Her favorite Happy Hour item still are those Deviled Eggs.
$6 during happy hour; the Missus is often tempted to order two. I enjoy the Prosciutto with Truffle Oil the most.
The Rabbit Sausage ($6 - Happy Hour) was nice; but it was the delicious whole grain mustard we really enjoyed.
The wbBLT Sliders ($8 - Happy Hour) are fine; we both enjoy the nice rolls.
The Wild Boar Poutine ($8 - Happy Hour) on the other hand was a disappointment.
Looks like this was placed under a broiler and the fries dried out making it seemed more baked than fried. The cheese was way too gooey and this was pretty salty so we couldn't make out any "wild boar". Also, where's the gravy?
As whole, we really enjoy the good cocktails ($6 - Happy Hour) and good Happy Hour pricing. The rather odd and eye catching artwork is a bonus. The Missus really likes the Lion's Share...to the point that She's willing to head into the Gaslamp.

Aqui es Texcoco:
It's been way too long since we last visited. But our old favorites are still great here.
From the consommé; full of lamb flavor and nice and comforting with a squeeze of lime.
To the salty, but satisfying Chicharron de Queso.....griddled cheese.
And the Missus's favorite; the Plato Azteca......with huitlacoche(of course) and flor de calabaza (squash blossom) of course.
And of course you gotta get some Borrego....in this case the Mixiote.
Aqui es Texcoco never lets us down.

I couldn't help but take a photo of this sweet face.......waiting faithfully for its owner who was probably doing some Christmas shopping....hopefully for the pooch.
