After all our serious discussions about TAVI this week, we’ve moved on to some more casual topics.. It’s a sunny, quiet Saturday in Mexicali – so we spent the day enjoying some of what the city has to offer..
First we stopped by the Betty diner for lunch – a Betty Boop themed 50’s diner that we stumbled across the other day.
Av. Honduras #123
Esq. on Bogotá
Col. Cuauhtemoc Sur
(near the Plazita)
Open 8am to 9am – closed Mondays..
I’m not usually a ‘food poster’ – so I don’t usually post pictures of food – but since we are talking about a restaurant, I’ll break some of (my) rules.. It’s a casual place – with a mix of Mexican and American style food.
The owner, Francisco Padillo was there – and he was very nice, along with all of the servers. I made my husband order his meal in his (worse than mine) remedial Spanish. He also paid in dollars – with no eye rolls and/or sighs from the staff..
All and all – it was a nice lunch.
Since, I was acting like a preadolescent girl, my husband (continued to) indulge me – and we headed over the Hello Kitty store just down the street – in the Plazita..
(Really – who can resist Hello Kitty! – she’s just so darn cute!)
After that – we were off to do some of our regular errands..
