Carnaval Trip February 2012 Part 7
Posted 08 March 2012 - 10:05 PM
Monday after the dives we went over to Paula and Gregs (Coz2wonder) to deliver some Miracle Whip. We had a great visit seeing their home in the jungle out by Playa Mia, meeting them, their dogs, and paying homage to the cat who rules all. We then went into town to grab some dinner. We went to a nice place at the corner of Juarez and Ave 15 called Sonora Grill. It is a second floor restaurant with very nice decor. The walls are all open windows and the breezes that blow through are great.
We had some tortilla soup and then some yucatan chicken and enciladas.
The next day, Tuesday, was the last night of parades. (The carnaval parades are usually Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday.) We decided this would be our night out at a 'fancy' restaurant. We went to La Kinta (on Ave 5 between Calles 2 and 4, almost across the street from ISIS). Most of the seating area is a walled garden towards the back. Here are a couple views of the seating area.
We started out with glasses of Jamaica (pronounced Huh My A Ka), a tea made from hisbiscus flowers that is very popular in Cozumel. Claudia had never had it before and found it very refreshing.
There was a 'special' appetizer that night. It was great. Sorry, but neither Claudia nor I can remember what it was.
We also had an order of their black bean with cumin soup to share. They split it into 2 small bowls for us. Claudia had the
PORKY PASILLA ($145 pesos) Slow roasted Pork tenderloin with Chile Pasilla and Crimini mushroom demiglaze toasted Almonds, Fig marmalade and mashed potatoes (this description is copied from their online menu).
I had the KAMARON ADOBADO $155 Grilled Shrimp, marinated in Achiote with caramelized Pineapple salsa and Cilantro rice. Both dishes were really excellent.
For desert, Claudia had the DESEO DE CHOCOLATE $55 Warm flourless Chocolate cake with Cajeta and Today`s ice cream. That's the photo below. I had their
BUDIN DE LA ABUELITA $55 Three Milk Bread pudding with bananas, Mexican chocolate and Cajeta sauce. They were both great.
After this we waddled down to Melgar to watch the final Carnaval parade.

See you next visit.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

I drink to forget, but I eat to remember.... so it all balances out
