Our favorite Chinese restaurant reopened today for take out only!!!!

We think it's called El Mandarin, it's on Benito Juarez just before the Mercado, two doors away from Jaiba Feliz, not on the corner.

So nice to see, and the food is as great as ever.

Thanks for the heads up!

There are (or were) two Chinese restaurants on that block. Lupita likes one but not the other. I don't recall why or remember which one. I think the original one that had Chinese owners sold out and moved on, but that's still the one she likes. Watch out for the chiles. It's best not to eat the whole chile at once. More than once we've missed them among the greens and had some memorable experiences. ;-)

Like your lovely wife, we like one of them on that block and not the other. Fortunately, the one we like is the one that opened today!!

Guerrero has the hottest salsas, in our opinion, of any other state in Mexico. Something about the habaneros. But in the Chinese food, they use serranos. Hum....

Sorry you were wrong, no rain today. Next guess was mine, on the 24th, so we are all hoping.

Hey, the day's not over, but yeah, it's not looking good for rain today. Just a brief patch of clouds passed over us.

Lupita is guessing the 27th, but I'm hoping you're right. This smoke sucks.

Had to laugh last evening when we heard neighbors playing James Brown in their clandestine bar. What are the odds? I think they saw my post.

NOTE TO SELF: Don't try to dance to James Brown with flip flops on, especially anywhere near the roof's edge.

I must have eaten at the "other one".
You know sometimes you get a meal so bad that you just keep trying it...thinking "it must be ME...food cannot be this bad..."
And then maybe you put it in the refrigerator to try again another day...and it's the same...maybe worse...
Definitely the worst "dining" experience in Zihua and possibly my life...

We are great cooks with a great kitchen, but we have gotten in the habit here to eat out for breakfast or lunch several times a week.

We have SUFFERED not being able to do that for the last many weeks, so this was a real treat.

Don't forget to tip generously!!

I ate at one of the Chinese restaurants on Benito Juárez a couple of years ago and later that day I couldn’t drink enough water for the life of me.
I’m not sure if it was all the MSG that many Chinese restaurants as well as other fast foods use. That’s a main reason I don’t eat at Chinese restaurants or fast food anymore...
