A Bridge to Pinal Villa

Finally some decent work is done on the road to Pinal Villa. Hopefully, we'll get two more. They did grade most of the road but there are still two more water crossings. We also have new night lights around the "campo de futbol". Cihuatlan Government is doing what it promised. 

Whoops .... make that two bridges.  They must have finished this one late yesterday. Only one more to go.

Expo-venta de "Coqueta"

Have you not tried the coconut caramel treat? The company "COQUETA" will have a large Expo-sale which will take place on February 26 this year, in the Jardin of San Patricio Melaque, from 5:00 pm.

Cajeta is a Mexican confection of thickened syrup usually made of sweetened caramelised goat's milk.

Mexican cajeta is considered a specialty of the city of Celaya in the state of Guanajuato, although it is also produced with the traditional method in several towns of the state of Jalisco, such as Mazamitla, Sayula, and Atotonilco el Alto.

Cajeta is made by simmering goat's milk, or occasionally a sweetened liquid, stirring frequently, until it becomes very viscous due to evaporation of water, and caramelized. While goat milk is the most usual base, other liquids or juices may be used.

Melaque First Beach Fishing Contest

About 20 contestants caught quite a few fish this last weekend, Many of them good sized. None compared with that Ray. A friend caught a smaller one with a spear gun in Cuatecomate. I don't know if these have barbs on their tails like the dangerous little Stingrays people often step on.

Kyoto is back

For good Japanese food open noon to 9 PM. The other Japanese restaurant closes around 5 in the afternoon. Like many restaurants here the owner will want his property back or raises the rent so Kyoto moved on and has been closed for about a year. Jose the owner, is a great guy and has no problem with 1/2 orders. Fried rice and shrimp is my favorite.They are located at the end of Taco Row next to the computer shop.

Tacos Cano

Tacos Cano on Ramon Corona just east of the market and on the next block south of Taco Row. They are the only taco stand on that block with almost no traffic like Taco Row has. If you don't like those large, smelly Urbano buses missing you by inches ... let alone crazy drivers and motos .... this is the place for you. Nice people, good food and Wednesday's tacos are 5 pesos. They use two tortillas so you can usually make an extra taco with what is left on your plate

Papas on the Plaza

El Rinconcito

A recent discussion on Tomzap about stuffed potatoes and a few were mentioned in Barra and Melaque. The most famous is Las Güinas in Villa Obregon but their papas are huge and over stuffed. You might be able to order a toned down version but haven't tried them .... and they are expensive. 

This place is on the corner of the Plaza at the entrance to Taco Row. Their papas are small, inexpensive and you choose what you want on them like tacos. I've seen them cooking but they weren't ready and I seldom get into town in the evening anymore. Gonna have to force myself so I can try them
