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 , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.
