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...
What? You’ve never tried birria?

What? You’ve never tried birria?

I’m not surprised. I hadn’t tried it until about ten years ago. And I’m a guy who scours the back streets of San Miguel on a constant search for anything new and different. Especially anything Mexican. The problem with birria is it’s a regional dish, a very regional...
The Dude. Delivered.

The Dude. Delivered.

“Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not Mr. Lebowski. You’re Mr. Lebowski. I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” It was...
