Pleasant Evening at “My Sunshine Restaurant”

The Senor and I always enjoy bidding on dinner certificates at the Sailfest Silent Auction with the reason being two fold. Most importantly this insures me of some dinning out which is not real high on the Senor’s priority list as we have a perfectly good kitchen in our apartment. It also means that some of our dinning experiences will be places we have never been to before and sometimes ones we have never heard of and have to search out the location. The searching out is my job as the Senor is still on the mend.

Gourmet dinning is not what we look for. For that matter tiny servings on tiny plates with a squiggle of sauce across the plate is a turn off for the Senor. Our selection of restaurants this year was quite satisfactory, we had 4 different restaurant certificates on Calle Adelita which is primarily a street of restaurants and small hotels.  All were great meals, but my one objection to a couple of the lovely sidewalk cafes on Calle Adelita is the traffic. Exhaust fumes from a constant stream of taxis and even the Modelo truck making deliveries does not make for a great dinning ambiance and conversation.

Tonight was different, our certificate was for “My Sunshine Restaurant” a couple of blocks down from the bridge that crosses the canal. In an out door courtyard off the street where a good dinner at very reasonable can be enjoyed with out the interference of traffic. Charming waiter, great food and they even have their own house mescal that was highly praised by another patron.

Our certificate was for 2 margaritas (I drank both and they were delicious) dinner and desert. We opted for a take home box and didn’t finish all our meal so we  could indulge in the desert which we almost never do.

That was definitely a good plan, desert was yummy ! So a great dinner, enough left overs for lunch tomorrow, pleasant surroundings, friendly service and no exhaust fumes, I’m happy. We will be back. Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
