I decided to do this Cinco de Mayo location since we are fast approaching the date this Thursday and I didn’t have any other agenda in mind because I was still recovering from all the Royal wedding festivities last Friday.
I arrived at 11 AM – opening time for brunch on the weekend. I was the first one in the door and there was no rush to open. That’s OK. I am use to it because I lived in Mexico where manana is manana.
We finally got a sunny, beautiful day but they were not letting people eat outside so I happily sat at the table in the front window where I often try to sit to photograph food.
I ordered the Queso Fundido which I lived on when I was in Mexico. It was always one of the least expensive things on the menu and when you are a student you look for cheap.
My waiter finally went off to bring me a bowl when I started rattling off in Spanish that the Queso Fundido was very different from what I’ve had in the past. In fact, he looked rather amazed that I spoke Spanish at all.
At this point even the green sauce could not rescue this bowl of Queso Fundido because by now it was cold and I just didn’t have a taste for it anymore.
Seemed like a good excuse.
