“I’ve got what in my mouth?”

“I’ve got what in my mouth?”

I wrote what’s written below back in early March when San Miguel de Allende was still open for business. The “gentlemen who lunch” met at Crow that day to experience two very different but very tasty cantina specialties that are virtually impossible to find anywhere...
The pizza that people like me forget.

The pizza that people like me forget.

Pizza restaurants are like sports teams. Almost everyone has a favorite. Almost everyone cheers for their favorite. And almost everyone likes to tell other pizza lovers why their favorite should also be your favorite. I eagerly watched a discussion…some might...
My favorite San Miguel taco. Without the trip to a taco stand.

My favorite San Miguel taco. Without the trip to a taco stand.

They’ve never been places I’d purposefully go out to. They’re more places I’d just end up at when I’d go out. And, most often…which was very often…after a drink or two or maybe three. I’m talking about taco stands. The most basic yet the ultimate Mexican...
We all could use a little comfort now.

We all could use a little comfort now.

Comfort food. I wasn’t sure the term existed when I was a kid. So I looked it up. The Oxford English Dictionary officially added it to our vocabulary in 1997. Long after I was a kid. Long after my kids were kids.  Yet when I think of comfort food I think of dishes I...
Oooooooooeeeeeeeeee! San Miguel’s best food bargain is back.

Oooooooooeeeeeeeeee! San Miguel’s best food bargain is back.

I don’t think there’s a better restaurant value anywhere in town. And though I’m not even in San Miguel these days, I was very sad to see it disappear a couple of weeks ago.  Noren Caceres, chef/owner of one of San Miguel’s most reliable restaurants had, apart from...
A love story. In six chapters.

A love story. In six chapters.

I wrote what’s below back in January, with little intention of ever publishing it (the photos, especially, were never meant to be shared) and, if I remember right, it was written after a second bottle of wine was opened. A lot of what I wrote has little relevance in...
Pastrami in the time of pandemic.

Pastrami in the time of pandemic.

I wanted a good old-fashioned deli-style sandwich delivered to my door today. I thought it would be easy. Every restaurant here in Toronto is hooked up these days with Uber Eats or Foodora or Skip The Dishes or their nephew with the 10-speed. There are about three...
Denver delivers but, darn it, not this far.

Denver delivers but, darn it, not this far.

One of my favorite chefs in San Miguel is Denver Reyes. No, let me change that. One of my favorite human beings in San Miguel is Denver Reyes. Now Denver is not a lot like other San Miguel chefs. If I’m hanging out with other San Miguel chefs, we’re usually climbing...
What I’d be eating tonight. If only I could be in San Miguel.

What I’d be eating tonight. If only I could be in San Miguel.

I’m in Toronto, hibernating with Mama Bear. Or maybe it’s Mother Hubbard because our cupboard is very bare. Our restaurant round-ups are called food delivery apps and we’re struggling. After seven days in the cave, after seven different apps, after burgers and sushi...
