Thai Adventure in Mexico!
Today I'm going back in time to remember one of the best dining surprises we had in Mexico. It was in April of 2016.
Bar in the Aquarium
We were greeted by the hostess, who walked us through the bar towards the dining huts. I caught sight of a dolphin's tail, but didn't have a chance to snap a photo. We should have started our evening there.
We followed our hostess on the winding paths, past the lit palapas. I wanted to stop and stare into each cozy dining area. But that would have been a little rude.
Later, I wandered a little and snapped a few photos. I loved the round table, surrounded with pillows.
Rows of Tables
One section held smaller tables, with glowing candles.
It was so dark, I couldn't tell where the lagoon was. But I could feel the breeze blowing over the water, rustling the palms. It was a beautiful, balmy night.
My camera flash, added a harsh light to our cozy dining palapa. We were pretty giddy, to have been seated in our own dining hut!
Not Too Spicy
We were able to ask for less spice in our dishes. I had a vegetarian Pad Thai that was delicious. Don's chicken entree and our chicken saute appetizer, were both cooked perfectly, with exotic flavors... that I can no way describe!
A trip to the Ladies Room gave me a chance to peek around. I just had to snap a photo of the blowing curtains. Luckily this did not cause privacy issues.
Chefs at Work
I loved this dramatic wall. The opening revealed the chefs at work and I wish I could have stood there for an hour.
Over the Lagoon
I wandered a bit further and spotted some tables that might be fun for the future. Although, I really did love our jungly setting, with a breeze and gentle fan blowing from our hut's ceiling.
Thinking back on this trip, I am more than ready to return to Mexico... or Thailand!
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.
