Day 10 - Eats and Treats

It was inevitiable - eventually there would be food photos!

Having eaten at street vendors for over a week (which, by the way, has been amazingly tasty!) it was time for a sit-down meal with friends.

We decided on Gaby’s, a neighbourhood restaurant since 1989, grabbing a seat on the 2nd floor balcony while black and white movies played against the wall of the building across the narrow street. One block below were passing processions with marching bands, participants marching and singing, and gathering crowds and street vendors - all in celebration of the Festival of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Gaby’s, a cocina de tradición mexicana (Mexican tradition kitchen) has a varied menu but this dish caught my eye. Chiles Rellenos (Nogada Style) - a poblano pepper stuffed with ground meat and other assorted tasty ingredients topped with a creamy nut sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Absolutely delicious. Billed as their ‘national dish’. YUM.

Apologies for grainy photo - taken with iPhone in low light.

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
