Puerto Morelos Up Date What's on February 27th, 2012

Talking of food - announcing arrival of guest Chef Jeff Martinez until recently the Chef de Cuisine at Fonda san Miguel, Austin, Texas, www.fondasanmiguel.com, one of my all time favourite restaurants. With 21 years of experience in the industry Jeff brings with him his passion for Mexican food and is about to share it with all of us. Scheduled to take classes 22, 23 and 27 March he is designing a menu right now and we have asked him to prepare a special brunch for that Sunday as well. Here is a link to a review of his menu at the restaurant http://www.examiner.com/mexican-restaurant-in-austin-mn/fonda-san-miguel-a-stunning-hacienda-style-restaurant-with-genuine-mexican-food.

In case you had not heard we have a few new eating places in Puerto Morelos - Vegan Tacos is now where the old hardware store was a few doors south from Oxxo, apparently delicious and cheap. I Wanna Pizza, run by a young Uruguayan - I ate there the other night, delicious thin crust lobster pizza (not a lot of lobster) and they have really great home made bread and serve delicious bruschettas, in a renovated little house, it is very quaint and cosy (BYO). Hooray! Constancia has reopened Taninos! Remember the wine bar opened a couple of years ago in the street where the high school is? Well now Taninos has

taken over where El Bistro was last year, next to Chimmichurris, and she has renovated that space. It is now very charming (no mosquitos last night!) with a really extensive wine list, cheese and crackers and snacks to go with wine, just a lovely atmosphere. Must mention the Salciccia - if you have not discovered the sausage shop at the Pemex station you must go and grab one of their sausage baguettes, 20 pesos, with pickled onions and your choice of salsa.

I admire enormously latin cultur. My first contact was when I traveled for work to Argentina, I stayed in a buenos aires apartments for 3 months. I created many friends very fast, as they are very amuzing guys and very open to foreign people. I had the time of my live. Since then I traveled Latin America a lot and finally I got married with an Uruguayan girl, so I am very happy.
