Has it really been a week? Yes, it has. I have been swamped. Hopefully, I will be able to settle into a routine soon.

Today I was looking for a new camera bag and I happened on a new restaurant across the street from the Mercado de Dulces in Centro. El Taquito is a comida corrida – a place where you can chose from a wide range of entries in a home-cooked style for a flat price. It is one of several new restaurants beside the mercado. I will just have to do more investigation. I am doing it entirely for you, dear readers. Believe me.

The meal I selected included a consume de camarones (shrimp consume) with bread and garnishes, a plate of puerco con chile verde with arroz Mexicano and a small salad. Fresh, house-made tortillas were served with this course and a fresh agua de mango was my choice of beverage. Good food, service and atmosphere for 50 pesos (less than $4). The choices were extensive – almost ridiculously so.

Do I recommend it? Yes. But I’m going to have to go back and try a few other things I’m sure…. Wait. I was trying to lessen my load right? And I just committed to trying new restaurants and taking more pictures. There is no hope for me it seems…
