Yucatan Dining in Cozumel
Don and I returned to an old favorite, on a trip to Cozumel last May.
Over 10 Years Before
Here we are with our kids in 2007. The quaint sidewalk cafe, was just steps from the town's plaza. I believe our good humored waiter took the photo.
The place looked pretty much the same after 10 years. This photo shows the tables and chairs looking more modern... and the diners looking more aged. I kind of missed the old wooden tables and chairs.
As the placemat reminded us, Casa Denis has been around since before Don and I were born. So that made us feel younger.
Don and I recognized our old waiter from 10 years ago. Martin was just how I remembered him... gruff one minute and playful the next. He said he'd been working at Casa Denis for 17 years. He hasn't lost his posing skills.
Little Yellow Casa
Don and I arrived hungry at about 9 pm. There were plenty of tourists sitting outside the little yellow building.
When we walked by earlier in the day, I could see the house-like shape and hoped to take a peek inside when we returned.
In the evening, I walked through the white doors and took a peek inside. I could imagine the Angulo family once living in the casa.
Food and Drink
Don and I were happy to sit outside on a balmy evening. We had spent the cool and rainy day, visiting the ruins of Tulum and we were ready for margaritas and some Yucatan dishes.
Luckily the margaritas were delicious and safe...
Another Cozumel Trip
This is what happens when you indulge in bad margaritas.
(I'm not proud of this mother/daughter photo from 6 years ago) I know I sound like I'm blaming the margaritas... which I am. They were deadly.
Ole for Mole!
Lydia and Jennie stopped by selling key chains. They spoke some English and Don spoke enough Spanish to be able to communicate fairly well. They were good humored and talked about school, so we hoped it was okay to buy from them. There was a lot of discussion about which animals and shapes were best. Both insisted we include at least one mermaid in our purchase.
Pups and Music
We chose our favorite, the dramatic love song, Maleguena!
Until Next Time
The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
