Tio Domingo


Recommended Posts

Had yet another lovely meal at Tio Domingo Saturday night. No one else in the place unfortunately, and I don't know why. It's a lovely and intimate setting, outdoors with heaters when necessary, and quite large indoors. Salvador and his family prepare very good home-cooked meals, like lomo in gravy, chiles relleno, and a top-notch Sopa Azteca. Agreed, it is not the kind of food that makes me want to write home: it is simple fare, well-prepared, and worthy of my own kitchen. And it's naturally Mexican. Plates are always hot and so the food is always piping, which cannot be said for almost any other restaurant around here. Service is quick and personable, with one son waiting and one cooking, and a ersonal touch provided by an English-speaking and humourous Salvador. (He is also an excellent carpenter, and continues to make fascinating chess sets in his spare time, for sale.) And those vegetables he serves with most meals are perfectly cooked every time.

Prices are surprisingly low for today. 85 pesos for chiles rellenos? Wow. On March 21, he is preparing his once-or-twice yearly chiles en nogada.
