For dinner this evening we tried El Nido, a seafood & steak restaurant reviewed in Lonely Planet
Tuesday 23 June 2009
We spent all of today just lounging in Rosarito, Mexico again. We began the day checking our email and enjoying coffee and some wonderful crepes at Nina’s Kafe, a tiny coffeehouse with a wonderfully friendly feel. Jim made a meal of the ham, egg, cheese, and mushroom crepe. Steph had the nutella and cream cheese crepe with a tasty mocha. We then made our way back down the beach where we both successfully and thoroughly burned large portions of our upper torsos. In our haste to taste local cuisine and enjoy, as cheaply as we could, local flavor and color, we totally forgot to spend any money or time on sun protection
Before the ill effects of our new coloration truly had a chance to set in that evening, we showered and set out to find dinner and do a little shopping. We initially wanted to try a place we had stumbled on called Tacomics, which was adorned with several action figures of Marvel comics’ heroes. However, the dog guarding the locked gate this evening was not in a very hospitable mood, so we moved back to another taqueria we had seen and shared some tacos – beef and al pastor (a seasoned roasted pork).
Finally, before reading aloud some more Kinky Friedman and finding out the killer’s identity in Greenwich Killing Time, we stopped at a few sidewalk stands along the main street, where Jim found a couple of really sweet Luchadore masks (Mexican wrestlers a la Nacho Libre). And with those two souvenirs in hand, he could already declare the trip to Mexico a success.
