Always a loads-of-fun party when some of our SMA family gets together; in this case on October 23rd at Bonom Club de Petanca, near Bodega Aurrera and Distrito Soma.
At the restaurant there, the food is prepared by one of SMA’s favorite chefs, JJ Castaneda; getting high marks for what is considered to be world street food. As a special treat, Chef JJ Castaneda fixed his famous cabbage rolls for the birthday boy and girl, Rick Thompson and Susan Smith Gist.
Rick remembered the cabbage rolls as being one of the best dishes he had when we ordered a load of small plates to sample one night when JJ was at Fatima as the chef. In fact, JJ is such a great chef, we believe he can cook anything so if you want him to fix something special, ask him a few days before.
We also loved JJ’s burger; the recipe from his friend Chef Gabriel Ordonez, who use to serve this hamburger at Mercado Sano on Saturday mornings. It’s made with a blend of short rib and brisket with a special sauce. There’s a full bar with reasonably priced drinks – from artisanal craft beers to your favorite spirits.
Petanca is the French version of the Italian game of bocce. The best things is you always play for free of you order food or drink. It’s the perfect place for a party; open air and the only place of its kind in SMA to eat, drink and play Petanca. Contact the restaurant to reserve a table in advance.
Love you, Patsy Dubois, and thanks for the one-of-a-kind, very special, birthday cake, which everyone LOVED.
