You have an iPad Ed??? Oh my, now I know all things are possible!!!


The drinks sure do look refreshing, especially the cantelope one! Is that Liz Taylor on the yellow wall?

Ed (from Yuma)

Well, Kirk, notice that I did not say that I owned an iPad, though I have used someone else's on occasion.

All the aguasfrescas are good there, cc, but I'm not sure about the picture. I have rather poor facial recognition skills (they actually have a test for this online), but I was wondering Ida Lupino, but I can find neither of them with exactly that pose, and Liz Taylor wore her hair like that more often. Does anyone else have a guess?? But I do recognize Cantinflas!


CC, I have looked at the photo both times we have been there and I do think it is a young Liz Taylor. We need to ask.


Looks and sounds like a winner.


What a great find-food (and description of) look so very good. Always looking for tlaycoyo variations around here. (Cantinflas-with that mustache-and I'd say that is a young Elizabeth.)


I should know better by now to to read your posts until around lunch. They always get my saliva going no matter how much I ate for breakfast. Man, I'm going to have to make myself some of those enfrijoladas. I just wish my son like refried beans (he loves tripe though, go figure).

Ed (from Yuma)

Well, Cathy, you and Tina and cc are probably right about Elizabeth. We will have to ask. Tlacoyo was new to me - they also had a bean stuffed version, but since we were having enfrijoladas, we decided potato was safer. It is a good restaurant billy.

When I wrote up the Viejo Loco post, jan, a reader commented that he'd grown up eating dishes with frijole sauce. Back in the day, that would be a frugal and healthy basic food, particularly if the tortillas enclosed things like verdolagas that people could find growing wild.
