    Min Wah

    I like Min Wah's hot and sour soup.
  2. Is this the one that was between 7 Eleven and the Garden Center?
  3. Isn't the municipio of Chapala's rule no more than 10? I believe that would overrule the state's 50.
  4. And that is a good reason to wear the mask in the house too! 😉
  5. So the stay at home order for 60+ is encouraged but not absolute. Most of us are smart enough to do essential tasks (while wearing a face mask, of course) and then go home. As far as the gatherings if no more than 50, I don't even know that many people and isn't Chapala's regulation no more than 10?
  6. Fans? I'm guessing that is a faulty translation of ventilators as a fan in Spanish "ventilador.". Fans are easy to acquire, ventilators not so much.
  7. In my book clueless and oblivious are the same thing. Don't care is unforgivable. They might care if one of them or a family member or grandma got suck or even died. Stay at home and social distancing are selfless acts so you don't infect others in case you are infected. That is also the primary reason for wearing a mask, to protect others.
  8. Panela is what piloncillo is called in Colombia too. There is comes in bricks, not the cond shape here. What form is it sold in in Chiapas? In Colombia they make agua de panela, which is just hot water with panela melted in it, so essentially sugar water. It is common to drink agua de panela at breakfast.
  9. Are you basing your statement that Walmart doesn't treat its employees well in terms of salary and benefits on what Walmart does in the US or what Walmart does in Mexico? Labor laws are different between the two countries so pay and benefits like health care vary between there and here. The employees at Walmart are Mexican and count in those jobs to support their families just as the owners of the local abarrotes do.
  10. I didn't think I misunderstood. Brewing beer is nit essential. Better go buy your supply before it becomes as scarce as toilet paper in the US. https://www.unotv.com/noticias/portal/nacional/detalle/coronavirus-en-mexico-cerveceras-no-puede-operar-fue-un-error-lopez-gatell-172544/
  11. This is not what I understood Dr. Lopez-Gatell to say on this evening's press conference. I thought he saud brewing beer is not an essential business. I could have misunderstood him. Who else listened to his answer to the reporter who specifically asked about thus?
  12. What "ladies in San Juan Cosala"? The sewing group of Operation Feed, which is compromised of local Mexican ladies working together to make items they can sell to have some income, was selling them for 50 pesos each. For another 50 pesos you could buy one to be given to a resident if the village.
  13. Totally agree. Bad translation. No mention of mandatory neither yesterday nor today.
  14. Just an FYI...Super Lake no longer carries Mexican Campbell's soups, just imported ones. Truth is, other than a few like elote, crema de poblano and crema de champiñones, even Walmart and Soriana don't carry much Campbell's soups anymore. Even pollo con arroz can be scarce. I wonder why that is.
  15. Decisions are being made daily. I believe the announcement that the tianguis in Ajijic and Chapala are closed was just made yesterday by presidente of the municipio . Of course th GR didn 't have it last Friday.
  16. The chiles en nogada at Casa Fuerte are excellent. I think you also get a complimentary tamarindo margarita if you ask. Great service too.
  17. Not open for breakfast anymore. I don't know what time they open for lunch or how late they stay open.
  18. If I am at Centro Laguna and want to go to Walmart, I never try to cross the carretera. I go up to one of the Centro Laguna exits and exit southbound onto the libramiento. Lots easier and safer. Unfortunately there is no good way to exit Walmart and head west. But i do think nobody should try to exit from near AutoZone. Why the did not put in 4-way stop light at that intersection is beyond me.
  19. Only one ATM was working at HSBC Saturday and it quit as soon as I tried to withdraw. I went to Walmart and used Banamex machine.
  20. I saw M&J Pizza had an ad in the Guadalajara Reporter wishing Purple Garlic Brothers good luck in their new San Antonio location. Does anybody know where they will be in San Antonio?
  21. Which soup did you have? I really like their hot and sour soup. I usually get cashew chicken and there are definitely cashews in it.
  22. But one should not have to be "lucky" to get the service they have contracted and paid for. It's just the right way to do business fairly and honestly, not a lottery.
  23. Riberas Medical Group is what used to be Integrity. Dra. Lupita Cevallos moved her clinic to the building that was formerly the Lake Medical Group, on the carretera in Riberas just east of the Catholic church and right across the carretera from the Moyoyo car wash, next to Best Lab. Most of the same specialists who were at the Integrity location near Telmex in Ajijic come there once a week.
