Only two days left in Puerto Vallarta, and we’ve been having a total blast… especially our stomachs! Mexico is truly a paradise for gourmets, where gluttony is queen. The city is filled with food stalls that spreads an amazing aroma all over the streets… day and night! It’s truly hard to resist eating everything in sight haha
Also, we discovered that Mexico had some quite amazing beer – my ultimate discovery (for now) is “Indio”. It tastes like really fancy Czech pilsner! It’s round in the mouth, and really really tasty. I can’t wait to find a bar and drink a whole pitcher of it…
Today we saw some cheese that looked like curds, so we decided to make mexican poutine for dinner. We used (for two), 1/2 cup of olive oil, 5 potatoes cut in fries, a pack of salsa and 175 g of oaxaca cheese.
You start by boiling water in a large pot, then adding the potatoes in. Cook until they are soft enough to pierce easily with a knife and then fry them in olive oil in a pan for 20 minutes or until they become golden and crispy. When the fries are almost ready, you can heat the salsa; it needs to be boiling in order to melt the cheese. When everything has finished cooking, do it like this: Put cheese on the bottom of a plate, place fries, add more cheese, then smother with salsa… and serve!
We also found a record shop in Puerto Vallarta! And they have a small but decent metal section too. The shop name is Sonido Rana, located at FCO. 1 Madero 325.
So yup… the next time you hear from us, we’ll be in Guadalajara. For now, here is a non-vegetarian friendly photo of François in a butcher shop in the Mercado Emiliano Zapata.
