Last week we were coming out of La Pasidita and we saw a friend we met at our old favorite taco place, La Palmera, and she told us that the original owners had reopened under a new name, Mi Roca. Everyone, it is once again safe to eat breakfast in Lytle!
The demise of La Palmera was a sad story; a family tragedy which resulted in the selling of the property, new owners and several attempts at multiple different taco operations, but nothing that could meet our sensitive taste buds (we don't like crap). Oh, sure, we've gotten by in Natalia with La Pasidita (which is good), but I've craved the chorizo and egg and the delicious tortillas so close to what Eva makes at home.
Today, we stopped in and I ordered my standard trifecta.
And I hope you will. The family at Mi Roca is rebuilding by word of mouth and if you have ever taken my tip for a good place to eat, stop into this hole-in-the-wall in Lytle and give them a shot. By the way, the homemade green salsa is simply the best.
Rocky's Roadside Grill. My bacon Cheeseburger was outstanding, as always. Eva had the Chicken Parmesan and loved it. Don't wanna sound like a broken record, but there are good eats out here if you just know where to go. We always like going to Rocky's but don't seem to make it often enough. Need to work on that.
And speaking of Devine... Yesterday we went to make a donation at the thrift shop and on the way back through town we stopped into Christian's, a furniture store that we've passed by dozens of times. They have a pretty funny billboard on I-35 touting their large warehouse saying, "Size really does matter". The look on the girl's face says it all. Anyway, we ended up spending over an hour in there just walking around and looking. We also talked to a guy, I presume to be one of the owners, about UTSA football and the difference in ticket prices at our games and Texas A&M games! We did buy a new mattress cover for our bed and will probably go back again soon. I love the idea of shopping local (the tri-city area, you know), but we often pass by these places and don't realize how good they are.
I feel like I've just rolled off a bunch of advertisements - breakfast, dinner, furniture; check.
With a few days off from work (which I'll regret on Monday) I've had some time to do a little work on the man cave. I've done as much wiring as I could but need to frame out our little closet before I can finish things up.
Oh, I didn't mention Eva's Christmas guns...
