The Sunday Traveler~Lunch in Zirahuen, Mexico

We rode into town like two hungry desperadoes. Down cobblestone streets following the Bienvenido sign to the dock where we knew we’d find lunch. We’d made a short stop to take a peek at the church and courtyard, and moved on pretty quickly given the number of churches we had been through in the last several days.

We bumped down dirt roads with potholes filled with rain water, and parked down a ways from the dock itself, traversing the last couple blocks jumping over puddles and seeing a little local life.

A little cafe was selected from the myriad of places to choose from; my cousin has selected Cocina Economica Dona Mary, and we head in to get out of the wind and rain that has started. We’re met at the door by the woman making tortillas.

Another thing pulling us inside is the beauty right outside the door

Squash blossoms to cook, and chile rellenos on the grill….I’m convinced this is the place for us!

We’re seated and offered a beverage of choice while we wait for our meal.

Meal selected, and I wander over to the counter where all the cooking and food prep is going on.

To start, a local soup with beans and a slice of chile on top (I chased that chile around my empty bowl trying to cut it with my spoon until my cousin provided backup…highlight of the mealtime fun).

And then our main selections arrived; I had the chile relleno, and my cousin had the fish

Another wonderful day and meal in Zirahuen. The hidden wonders of Mexico.

  4. Yummy, squash blossoms are the best, floured and cooked. Marvelous tour and your discoveries.

    Uh, waitress, there’s a fly on my squash blossom.

    So that didn’t bother you? The photos are colorful and beautiful, but boy, that fly-covered squash blossom would have scared me away from this cocina.


  6. I love your photos in this post, especially the people ones – the way you frame them and the way you capture these everyday activities.
