jkgourmet Posted September 13, 2010 Report Share Posted September 13, 2010 After reading on this forum of our unsuccessful visits to El Serape for chamorro, we were delighted and honored when several other posters from this board invited us to join them for dinner on Friday at El Serape We were delighted with the service (friendly, helpful and eager to please), the strong margarita (oh my!), the decent red wine by the glass and the salsa and chips (a bit chunky and thick and certainly on the spicy side, just as we like it!). About half of our group ordered the chamorro, which was a very large portion of pork shank in a red, slightly spicy, chile sauce (maybe there's a little chipotle in that sauce?) I think anyone walking in the downtown Ajijic Plaza could hear the ooohs, ahhs and yumms from our table. Sides included refried beans and rice. Rice was also quite good, Husband cleared the plate of his refried beans. He later confirmed that they were excellent, and admitted that he would have liked to have licked the plate clean of that red sauce. I'm very happy that I can say that this dish (and the salsa) was as good as we fondly remembered from our first visit to Ajijic two years ago (yes, I remember good food like good movies - if I liked it once, I probably will want it again.) We both would also like to thank Bournemouth, Atlas and Gringal (and their partners, spouses, friends) for their kind invitation and friendly conversation. I'd long forgotten why I sometimes liked blind dates when I was single - sometimes, they turn out to be wonderful and fun. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
